Vagabond King

Cat. #1432 (MFH #966) - As sung by Otis Williams, Wesley, Arkansas on

The world is wide and belongs to me
Th seven seas are mine
It's th winding brook, th shady trees
Th million stars that shine
I own th moon, th burning sun
And all th wind, that blows
Yet, gold an' silver, have I none
Or worldly goods to show

But could I pick a bright bouquet
Of precious gamblin' rare
I'd trade them all for just a pla
Of a fault within my hair
I want no ---, no magic wand
No palace for abode
For I am king of th vagabonds
Th knight of th open road
