Hey Sam hey Sam on the piano play me a little travelin’ music Sam
That woman she don’t want me lord she put them misery’s on me
I played her Hearts And Flowers she don’t wanna dance
So let’s have a little travelin’ music Sam

Just play it low and play it slow
So when I’m gone she’ll sit around chewin’ on her fingernails
Kick herself around the block for lettin’ me go
I tried to love her but she wanted another man
So let’s have a little travelin’ music play me a little travelin’ music
Let’s have a little travelin’ music Sam

When I met her my heart sang out a happy song
Her sweet talk was music to my ears
Then before I knew it me and she was singin’ a duet
So now the blues is all I ever hear

Well let’s have a little travelin’ music Sam
That woman she don’t want me lord she put them misery’s on me
She knows a million ways of messin’ up a man
So let’s have a little travelin’ music play me some travelin’ music
Let’s have a little travelin’ music Sam
[ piano ]
Let’s have a little travelin’ music Sam…
Play it Sam
