Biography

The Allman Brothers Band formed in 1969 in Macon, Georgia, United States and blended different strains of Southern Rock related music— Blues, Country, Gospel, Jazz, and more— into a flexible, jam-oriented Rock and Roll style. Reflecting the emergence of the "New South" and setting the style for Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, and many other bands, the Allman Brothers Band also oddly— or eerily, some would say— had an unusual string of untimely deaths, a pattern similar to other Southern rockers. Through personal tragedy and turmoil, the group endured for decades. Reaching the peak of their commercial clout in the early 70s, they were highly respected and well received by legions of fans. Lead guitarist and band leader Duane Allman has been recognized as one of the greatest blues and rock guitarists in history, according to numerous polls.

    Lyrics
    Lord, I was born a ramblin' man,
    Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can.
    And when it's time for leavin',
    I hope you'll understand,
    That I was born a ramblin' man.

    Lyrics
    Well, I've got to run to keep from hidin'
    And I'm bound to keep on ridin'
    And I've got one more silver dollar
    But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
    Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

    Lyrics
    I've been run down and I've been lied to.
    And I don't know why, I let that mean woman make me a fool.
    She took all my money, wrecks my new car.
    Now she's with one of my good time buddies,
    They're drinkin' in some cross-town bar.

    Ain't but one way out baby
    Lord I just can't go out the door
    Ain't but one way out baby
    And Lord I just can't go out the door
    'Cause there's a man down there
