I shipped my trunks down to Tennessee (2X) Hard to tell about a man like me I met a little gal couldn't get her off my mind (2X) She passed me up said she didn't like my kind I'm scared to bark around her house at night (2X) She's got a police dog that's cravin' for a fight His name is Rambler and when he gets the chance (2X) He leaves his mark on everybody's pants I guess I'm gonna travel now guess I'll let her be (2X) Before she sicks that police dog on me
