Free and easy, that's my style 
Howdy-do me, watch me smile 
Fare-thee-well me after a while 
'Cause I gotta roam
And any place I hang my hat is home

Sweetenin' water, cherry wine
 Thank you kindly, suits me fine
 Kansas City, Caroline 
That's my honeycomb 
'Cause any place I hang my hat is home

 Birds roostin' in a tree
Pick up and go, and the goin' proves 
That's how it oughta be
I pick up too when the spirit moves me
(I go where it behoves me**)
 Cross the river, 'round the bend
"Hello stranger!", "So long friend!"
There's a voice in the lonesome wind 
That keeps whisp'ring, "Roam!"
I'm going where a welcome mat is
No matter where that is
'Cause any place I hang my hat is home
