Allmans guitarist Dickey Betts wrote this song, taking the title from the 1951 Hank Williams song Ramblin’ Man. Betts also sang lead on the track, which he described as mostly autobiographical, telling the story of a guy whose travels take him to many places, and who takes life as it comes.
This was the first Allman Brothers Band single recorded without their leader, Duane Allman, who was killed in a 1971 motorcycle accident.
