Verse:
I have been a rov -er Since I was a child,
No one to love or care for me.
Knock'd a -round all o -ver Kind -a grew up wild,
My home's where -ev -er I may be.
 
Chorus:
I'm just breez -in' a -long with the breeze,
Trail -in' the rails, roam -in' the seas.
Like the bird -ies that sing in the trees,
Pleas -in' to live, liv -in' to please.
The sky is the on -ly roof I have o -ver my head,
And when I'm wea -ry Moth -er Na -ture makes me a bed.
I'm just go -in' a -long as I please,
Breez -in' a -long with the breeze. breeze.
