I'm trav'lin' light because my man has gone,
So from now on I'm trav'lin' light.
He said goodbye and took my heart away,
So from today I'm trav'lin' light.

No-one to see,
I'm free as the breeze,
No-one but me
And my memories.
Some lucky night he may come back again,
So until then I'm trav'lin' light.

No-one to see,
I'm free as the breeze,
No-one but me
And my memories.
Some lucky night he may come back again,
Some lucky night he may come back again,
So until then I'm trav'lin' light.
