Oh, naive little me,
Asking what things you have seen
You're vulnerable in your head
You'll scream and you'll wail till you're dead
Creatures veiled by night
Following things that aren't right
And they're tired and they need to be led
They'll scream and they'll wail till they're dead

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

Beaten battered and cold
My children will live just to grow old
But if I sit here and weep
I'll be blown over by the slightest of breeze

And the weak need to be led
And the tender are carried to their bed
And it's a pale and cold affair
And I'll be damned if I'll be found there

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

It's funny how the first chords you come to
Are the minor notes that come to serenade you
It's hard to accept yourself as someone...you don't desire
As someone you don't want to be

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am

But give me to a rambling man;
Let it always be known that that was who I am
