Oh, I miss my mother
Oh, I miss my home.
I was tempted by another
Tempted to roam.
Now I'm a rounder and a rambler,
Heart moving like a river.

A flower from December
A moon in Capricorn
A father's only daughter
Taking only what I'm owed.
I don't mind the rain coming in,
I stay ahead of the storm.
I don't mind this life of sin.
When I die, I know where I'm going.

Once I dreamt of a meadow
A lark's song in the air
A lightness to my footsteps
And perfume in my hair.
Then I woke to find a bottle,
An empty glass sitting there
The 13th Apostle
Without a prayer.

So girls, mind your mammas
And keep your heart your own.
Read the Good Book
Leave those travelin' men alone.
There's no future for a rounder,
Just a little light at most.
Ramblin' down the highway
A tumbleweed or a ghost.
