I've damn near walked this world around,
Another city, another town,
Another friend to say goodbye,
Another girl to sit and cry.

And it's many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I have been;
Many a mile I've been along this road,
It's many a mile I've to go.

Well, there was one, she knew me best,
You know she gave my poor heart rest;
She was my world, my joy, my dear,
Now she's gone to God knows where.

And it's many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I have been;
Many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I've to go.

I fill my glass up to the brim,
And through my glass the world looks dim;
But I know outside there's a light somewhere,
Maybe my rambling will get me there.

And it's many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I have been;
Many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I've to go.

I've seen your towns, they're all the same,
The only difference is in a name;
And the only home that I've ever known,
Was a suitcase and the open road.

And it's many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I have been;
Many a mile I've been on this road,
It's many a mile I've to go.
