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.


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.


     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.
