Now, I am the prowlin' nighthawk
I prowl ev'ryday an night
Now, I am the prowlin' nighthawk
I prowl ev'ryday and night
An the reason I prowl so long
My baby don't treat me right

I have prowled so long
'Till it made my knee bones so'
I have prowled so long
'Till it have made my knee bones so'
But when I find the little girl that I love
You won't see me prowl no mo'

Someday
I ain't gon' be no prowlin' man
I said, someday
I won't be no prowlin' man
I said I ain't gon' be mischievious
Ain't gonna be too hard to understand

'Play it, play it, boy'

(harmonica & guitar)

'You know you've been trav'lin' like I have'
'Play that thing, boy'

Now, I've been ramblin' an prowlin'
Ever since I was twelve years old
I have been ramblin' an prowlin'
Ever since I was twelve years old
An I wouldn't stop ramblin'
For my weight in gold

But someday
I ain't gon' prowl no mo'
Yes, someday
I ain't gon' prowl no mo'
But you know right now
I haven't got no place to go.
