More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

  G                           C7
I come from a tradition where facts get forgot
  G                                  Am             D7
I must have learned it well 'cause I can't remember squat
    G                             C7
Anniversaries and birthdays, I forget 'em and I fret
  G                               D                  G
I know there's one a'coming and I hope it ain't here yet

The grass was dry last week, I turned the water on
Left town, came back, found my neighborhood's a pond
I'm always running out of gas, I need a bigger tank
I'm overdrawn again down at the memory bank

             C7                       G
   I have forgotten what it's like to never lose a thought
        C7                             G            D
   Been searching around the world for reasons I forgot
      G                       C7
   If I recall one thing I forget about half the time
     G                          D              G
   I am a ramblin' man and I've got a ramblin' mind

Did I take out the trash?  Why's that cat so thin?
Where'd I put my keys?  And why's that cat so thin?
Sometimes I cross my eyes and forget to dot my tees
I put my boots on backwards and forget to use my knees

I remember lots of jokes but then forget the punch
I go to dinner parties and always brings my lunch
I want to dance the two-step but then I count to three
And I can never figure why my partner's always me

I forget what I'm doing even before I start
And forget to make my songs rhyme, you know what I mean
Memories I've had a few but put them in the drawer
Got a string around my finger and I wonder what it's for

   I am a ramblin' man and I...
