Farewell to the whiskey, tobacco and smoke
Farewell to the rum and occasional coke
Farewell to the girls who came ready to play
For this is the end of my wandering ways

Woke up one morning to the slam of a door
My lady had left me, she could take it no more
The note on the table in black and white told
My wandering ways had left her heart cold

We met last December while out on the tear
The laughter it flowed with the wine and the beer
I promised her riches, I said I'd be true
She gave me a baby and the party was through

Farewell to the whiskey, tobacco and smoke
Farewell to the rum and occasional coke
Farewell to the girls who came ready to play
For this is the end of my wandering ways

Now I miss my lady, I miss her so much
The smell of her hair and her comforting touch
And I miss my boy and his ready smile
They needed a man but I was a child

I hope this song finds her wherever she is
And if you see her, would you tell her this
For rambling and roving I don't give a damn
The boy that she left has grown into a man

Farewell to the whiskey, tobacco and smoke
Farewell to the rum and occasional coke
Farewell to the girls who came ready to play
For this is the end of my wandering ways

There's lots to be said for being out on the tear
As luck would have it the very next year
I met her again and she'd seen how I'd grown
Now we still go a-ramblin, but we do it at home

Come all you young ramblers wherever you are
Beware of the ladies you meet at the bar
The promise of pleasure can change your whole life
You walk in with a wallet and walk out with a wife

Farewell to the whiskey, tobacco and smoke
Farewell to the rum and occasional coke
Farewell to the girls who came ready to play
For this is the end of my wandering ways

Farewell to the whiskey, tobacco and smoke
Farewell to the rum and occasional coke
Farewell to the girls who came ready to play
For this is the end of my wandering ways

For this is the end of my wandering ways!
