Recorded by Hank Williams Jr. and Boxcar Willie
Written by Bill Emerson and Vince Emerson
[C]Now daddy told me stories
Bout the [F]winos and the [C]freight trains
That momma never [G7]wanted me to [C]know
That I had spent my younger days
[F]Sleepin’ in a [C]boxcar
She was ashamed that I had been a hobo
She never wanted me to [G7]know that he was a [C]hobo

Now momma was a Christian
And she [F]always read the [C]bible
She told me all the things [G7]that I shouldn’t [C]do
But you had railroad fever
And [F]gamblin’ in your [C]fingers

And a bad case of ramblin’ in my shoes
And a bad bad case of [G7]ramblin’ in our [C]shoes
So I [F]caught a southern bound in Detroit [C]City
And we [F]rode it all the way to Baton [C]Rouge
I [F]met up with a man called Boxcar [C]Willie
And [D7]you got your first taste of hobo [G7]stew
I [C]played every [G7]song of Jimmie [C]Rodgers
How I [F]loved those old Hank Williams [C]blues
Now [F]every time I hear that lonesome [C]whistle
We get a bad case of ramblin’ in our shoes
We get a bad bad case of [G7]ramblin’ in our [C]shoes
Yeah we [F]caught a southern bound in Detroit [C]City
And we [F]rode it all the way to Baton [C]Rouge
I [F]met up with a man called Boxcar [C]Willie
And [D7]you got your first taste of hobo [G7]stew
We [C]played every [G7]song of Jimmie [C]Rodgers
And we [F]sang every one of ole Hank’s [C]tunes
Now [F]every time we hear that whistle [C]blowin’
We get a bad case of ramblin’ in our shoes
We get a bad bad case of [G7]ramblin’ in our [C]shoes[/chordpress]

Who is Hank Williams Jr.?
– Randall Hank Williams (born May 26, 1949), known professionally as Hank Williams Jr. or Bocephus, is an American singer-songwriter and musician. His musical style is often considered a blend of Southern rock, blues, and country. He is the son of country music legend Hank Williams.
Williams began his career following in his famed father’s footsteps, covering his father’s songs and imitating his father’s style. Williams’ first television appearance was in a 1964 episode of ABC’s The Jimmy Dean Show, in which at age fourteen he sang several songs associated with his father. Later that year, he was a guest star on Shindig!.Williams’ style evolved slowly as he struggled to find his own voice and place within country music. This was interrupted by a near-fatal fall off the side of Ajax Peak in Montana on August 8, 1975. After an extended recovery, he challenged the country music establishment with a blend of country, rock, and blues. As a multi-instrumentalist, Williams’ repertoire of skills includes guitar, bass guitar, upright bass, steel guitar, banjo, dobro, piano, keyboards, saxophone, harmonica, fiddle, and drums.From 1989 through October 2011, his song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight”, refashioned as “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night”, had been used to open broadcasts of Monday Night Football until it was pulled after Williams made controversial and widely criticized comments comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler. The song returned to open the show in 2017 although it was temporarily removed in 2020.On August 12, 2020, Williams was selected to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
