Lyrics

Started out in old Decatur,
Knew I’d get there sooner or later,
Started out down in Decatur,
Met a Georgia girl—some kind of gator.
I took a ramble down, down Southwest.

Got myself to Auburn town,
Strangers staring far and wide,
Got to a college town,
They toasted too long and got fried.
I took a ramble down, down Southwest.

Reveling in New Orleans,
Got the gumbo on my mind.
Dancing in New Orleans
Joyous times aren’t hard to find.
I took a ramble down, down Southwest.

Back here in my homeland
It’s all familiar now.
I know where I am in my homeland,
Virginia is sweet and sour
I took a ramble down, down Southwest:
I was feelin’ lucky, and I was feelin’ blessed.
