8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I have been a rover since I was a child,
No one to love or care for me.
Knock'd around all over, kinda grew up wild,
My home's where ever I may be.
I'm just breezin' along with the breeze,
Trailin' the rails, roamin' the seas.
Like the birdies that sing in the trees,
Pleasin' to live, livin' to please.
The sky is the only roof I have over my head,
And when I'm weary Mother Nature makes me a bed.
I'm just goin' along as I please,
Breezin' along with the breeze. breeze.
