  Minnesota Party tape 1961, Minneapolis MN - May 1961  

Well let's see what we gonna do,...

I've rambled through your cities
I've rambled through your towns
I never meet a friend i know
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

My sweetheart an' my family
I've left in my home town
I'm out to do the best i can
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

My mother hoped i might be
A man of some renown
But i am just a refugee
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

The peach trees they are loaded
They fall down to the ground
I pick 'em all day for a dollar
As i go ramblin' 'round
As i go ramblin' 'round.

Sometimes peaches get rotten
They fall down to the ground
There's a hungry mouth for every peach
That falls down to the ground, boys
That falls down to the ground.

Sometimes i wish i could marry
Marry an' settle down
But i can't save a penny
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.  up

  The Minnesota Hotel Tape: Home of Bonnie Beecher, Minneapolis MN - 22.dec.1961  

Ramblin' 'round your cities
Ramblin' 'round your towns
I never see a friend i know
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

My sweetheart an' my family
I've left in my home town
I'm out to do the best i can
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

My mother prayed that i might be
A man with some renown
But i am just a refugee
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

The peach trees they are loaded
Their limbs are bendin' down
I pick 'em all day for a dollar
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.

Sometimes the peaches get rotten
The fruit falls on the ground
There's a hungry mouth for every peach
That falls down on the ground, boys
That falls down on the ground.

Sometimes i wish i could marry
Marry an' settle down
But i can't save a penny
As i go ramblin' 'round, boys
As i go ramblin' 'round.  up
