"Ramblin'" as written by and Matthew Taylor Armstrong Scott Andrew Brackett....
I go where the green woods grow
And the fires light up the night
You know I been a-ramblin'

Steam pours off the frigid pines
Weaves through mountains, took my time
I been a-ramblin'
I been a-ramblin'

The land is ripe, but the people weak
The gods still feel like they're cutting their teeth
I watch them as they grow
(Will they change?)
I don't know

I been ramblin'
I been a-ramblin'

I, I got nothing to lose
I, I've got nothing to lose

I was there in the Dark Age, in Europe, a bearer of the plague
I been a-ramblin'
I been a-ramblin'
The cockroaches will inhabit the cities as they fall
If there's one on the outside there's ten in the wall
I been a-ramblin'
I been a-ramblin'

I, I've got nothing to lose
Nowhere to be, nothing to do
I've got nothing to lose

Your precious daughter, lock her up if you're wise
I put that glimmer in her eyes
I been a-ramblin'
Oh, I been a-ramblin'

Innocent and proper on the outside
They're wanton with desire and hot between the thighs
I been a-ramblin'
Oh, I been a-ramblin'

I been, oh!
I been, ah!
