Lord I was born a Ramblin’ Jan
Tryin to make a livin and doin’ the best I can
When it’s time for leavin I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a rambling Jan
Apologies to Richard Betts & the Allman Brothers... I figure maybe they'll forgive me if they ever happen to see this. There's a weak tie of sorts between us. Many years back, when they were just beginning to be recognized by the world, I was friends with a guy who rode bikes with a few of the Allman Brothers. I met them a few times, never rode with them unfortunately (would have been a fun thing to claim!). They're a bit older than I am so I'm sure I never registered in their minds as anything other than a skinny little kid who wanted to be a big kid. Ah well, if I'd known they were going to be so HUGE in years to come, maybe I'd have an autograph or a photo. Maybe not.
