Free and easy, that's my style Howdy-do me, watch me smile Fare-thee-well me after a while 'Cause I gotta roam And any place I hang my hat is home Sweetenin' water, cherry wine Thank you kindly, suits me fine Kansas City, Caroline That's my honeycomb 'Cause any place I hang my hat is home Birds roostin' in a tree Pick up and go, and the goin' proves That's how it oughta be I pick up too when the spirit moves me (I go where it behoves me**) Cross the river, 'round the bend "Hello stranger!", "So long friend!" There's a voice in the lonesome wind That keeps whisp'ring, "Roam!" I'm going where a welcome mat is No matter where that is 'Cause any place I hang my hat is home **Mercer ad-libs the line "I go where it behoves me" in his 1974 recording. It does not appear in other recordings.
