Song Description

This song is about finding the right girl living a rambling life and basically you get what you believe

Story Behind the Song

about a time in life when I traveled around the country

Lyrics

I was Born To Ramble on
By Jonathan Ditto
Copyright 2013

I Got off that train
just a lil past town
When I jumped off the rail
Only them cows were "around"
(no one was) "around"

Jumped on the tracks
headed to a new place
I had a big ol smile
no plans on my face

"Mamma Always Told me, I was (born) to Ramble On"


The first thing I saw
Was a town in need
Didn't look so good
Wasn't up to speed
So I rambled down the road
Till something caught my eye

It was a pretty lil grin
lighting up the sky


So thats when I saw
that girl from afar
Twinkling in her eye
She was a
Sweet southern star
(like them stars)

(Chorus)

And thenI remembered some
words that my mamma gave me
As I rambled (fell) out that door
Making my history

Mamma always told me
you will get what you believe

Often times you'll wander
Often times you'll
"leave"

But if you see a girl as fine as that" one"
You better settle down ,
you better not run

life on the road
Goes as fast as that setting sun
But a good woman will
outlast all other fun
So if you see that smile
Stay wont you son?


"Thats when the rambling mans song is gone"

Break

then I remembered some words that my mamma gave me
as I rambled out that door making my history
Mamma always told me you will get what you believe
often times you'll wonder often times you leave
but if you see a girl as fine as that one you better settle down
you better not run



"Mamma always told me, I was born to ramble on"
and I better not run
