Allman Brothers Band – Ramblin’ Man live | Society Of Rock Videos

This insane guitar solo will leave you wanting more!

This song is one that doesn’t need very much commentary. You sense every guitar lick, character, and word– the moment this classic blues rock melody is set in motion.

Based on a 1951 Hank Williams song of the same title. It’s about a guy whose travels take him to many places, and he takes life as it comes.

Dickey Betts, guitarist for The Allman Brothers, penned this in the home the band shared in Macon, Georgia. Betts also sang lead on this track, while Gregg Allman would sing back-up from the seat of his beloved keys.

This was The Allman’s Brothers first top 10 hit!

“The song came out after the death of guitarist and driving force Duane Allman. Although the band lost a major part of their sound, they showed they could still be successful without Duane”.

In this video, Dicky displays so much passion! He puts his whole body and soul into it. It’s a gift that’s hard to come by- even by those who are technically skilled.

Check out why this brilliant performance was ranked among the 100 greatest classic rock songs of all time!
 

+Ramblin’ Man lyrics below+

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man,
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can.
And when it’s time for leavin’,
I hope you’ll understand,
That I was born a ramblin’ man.
My father was a gambler down in Georgia,
And he wound up on the wrong end of a gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin’ down highway 41.

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man,
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can.
And when it’s time for leavin’,
I hope you’ll understand,
That I was born a ramblin’ man.

I’m on my way to New Orleans this mornin’,
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee,
They’re always having a good time down on the bayou, Lord
Them Delta women think the world of me.

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man,
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can.
And when it’s time for leavin’,
I hope you’ll understand,
That I was born a ramblin’ man.
