Intro: D E7 A7 D I have been a rover since I was a child, E7 Gm A7 D A7+5 No one to love or care for me. D E7 A7 D Knocked around all over, kinda grew up wild -- E7 A A7 D A7 A7+5 My home's wherever I may be. D E7 A7 D Ain't no someone yearnin', wonderin' where I be; E7 Gm A7 D A7+5 I'm gone, but no one's missin' me; D E7 A7 D Ain't no light a-burnin' ev'ry night for me; E7 A A7 D A7 A7+5 I'm like a bird that's flyin' free. Melody: D DM7 F#7 B7 I'm just breezin' along with the breeze, E7 Edim A7 Em7 A7 D Bm7-5 A7 Trailin' the rails, roamin' the seas. D DM7 F#7 B7 Like the birdies that sing in the trees, E7 Edim A7 Em7 A7 D D7 Pleasin' to live, livin' to please. Bridge: G Cdim G Gdim The sky is the only roof I have over my head; D Bm E9 A7 A7+5 And when I'm weary, Mother Nature makes my bed. D DM7 F#7 B7 I'm just goin' along as I please, E7 Edim A7 A7+5 D Gdim D Breezin' along with the breeze.
