Intro: 
Em Em G G Em Em G G Em Em

Em Em G G
Some people say I'm a no-'count
C C G G
Others say I'm no good
C C G G
But I'm just a natural-born travelin' man
D D Em Em
Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah
D D Em Em
Doin' what I think I should

[Chorus]
G G C C G G C C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback-a dollar
G G C C G G
Spend it fast as I can
C C G G C C G G C C
For a wailin' song and a good guitar
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand, poor boy
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand

[Verse 2]
Em Em G G
When I was a little baby
C C G G
My mama said "Hey son, "
C C G G
"Travel where you will and grow to be a man
D D Em Em
and sing what must be sung, poor boy"
D D Em Em
Sing what must be sung

[Chorus]
G G C C G G C C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback-a dollar
G G C C G G
Spend it fast as I can
C C G G C C G G C C
For a wailin' song and a good guitar
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand, poor boy
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand

[Verse 3]
Em Em G G
Now that I'm a grown man
C C G G
I've traveled here and there
C C G G
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
D D Em Em
Are the only ones who ever care, poor boy
D D Em Em
The only ones who ever care

[Chorus]
G G C C G G C C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback-a dollar
G G C C G G
Spend it fast as I can
C C G G C C G G C C
For a wailin' song and a good guitar
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand, poor boy
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand, poor boy
D D Em Em
The only things that I understand
