When Will I Settle Down? (Little John Cameron)
(aka John Barr)

Too many people and too many towns,
Too many women hangin' around;
Smokin' and drinkin' and livin' it high,
When will I settle down?

I play my guitar all over the land,
Meet all kinds of people but they don't understand;
I just get to like it and then I move on,
Maybe next time around will be better.

Too many people and too many towns,
Too many women hangin' around;
Smokin' and drinkin' and livin' it high,
When will I settle down?

There's beautiful women in every town,
But they all want to get married and then settle down,
Be a wife and have children and a big fancy car,
And if they hold on this is going too far.

I just want a good time but now it must end,
One last kiss and it must be just friends;
Remember the good times we've had you and I,
But now it's all over, I must say goodbye.

Too many people and too many towns,
Too many women hangin' around;
Smokin' and drinkin' and livin' it high,
When will I settle down?
When will I settle down?
