  1. Wandering

From the recording Wandering

This is a traditional folk tune.  It is from the perspective of a hobo during the Great Depression. 
There is uncertainty as to who the composer may have been.  Some have attributed it to Carl Sandburg, the famous poet. 
Entertainer Roger McQuinn http://mcguinn.com  advises:     Sandburg's American Songbag.      Carl Sandburg credits first 3 stanzas to     Arthur Sutherland of Rochester, NY,     last 2 stanzas to Hubert Canfield     of Pittsford, NY.
Who knows!? 

Lyrics

I've been wanderin' early and lateFrom New York City to the Golden GateAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'My daddy was an engineerMy brother drives a hackMy sister takes in laundryWhile the baby balls the jackAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'I've been in the armyI've worked on a farmAnd all I've got to show is the muscle in my armAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'My ma she died when I was youngMy daddy took to stealin' and he got hungAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'Snakes in the oceanEels in the seaI let a redheaded woman make a fool out of meAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'I've been wanderin' early lateFrom the New York City to the Golden GateAnd it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'No, it don't look likeI'll ever stop my wanderin'
