Wanderin'

This was originally a post World War I lament of a soldier returning
to hard times in America. I've interpreted it as a tribute to traveling and have
written a few new verses to reflect my love of wanderin'
Lyrics:
[C] My daddy is an engineer, [Em] my brother drives a hack
My [F] sister takes in washing and the [Dm] baby balls the jack
[C] And it looks like I'm [Em] never going to [Am] cease my [Dm] -
[G7] – [C] wandering

I've been out a-wandering both early and late
From New York City to the Golden Gate
And it looks like I'm never going to cease my wandering

Been across this country so many times before,
But I never lose the feeling, that's what God made me for
And it looks like I'm never going to cease my wandering

Been working in the city, working on the farm
I always have a guitar underneath my arm
And it looks like I'm never going to cease my wandering

Played most every country, played most every town
Want to keep on playing, this whole wide world around
And it looks like I'm never going to cease my wandering

There's fish in the ocean, and eels in the sea
And everywhere I haven't been, that's where I want to be
And it looks like I'm never going to cease my wandering
