Subject: Lyr Req: Ramblin' Man (Iowa Girl Scout song?)
I picked up a wealth of songs from a Girl Scout in Iowa nearly 20 years ago... I was just a kid when I learned these songs and I've forgotten many of them. Of those I remember, verses are often missing. I'm hoping for some help on this one because I really love to sing it and I've had absolutely no luck with online searches. Here's what I remember:

Verse:
Look away while I wander to the hills by the sea
and I'll follow the voice of the calling breeze for

Chorus:
I'm just a ramblin' man
Having my fun and they
call me a wanderer but I'm
rich as the sun

Verse:
I forgot it... but it ends something like "I'm free as a bird and I'm reaching for the sky 'cuz (Chorus)"

Chorus

Verse:
Away in the unclimbed mountains I search for a stream
away from the town where I found my dream for

Chorus


Thanks in advance for any and all help/info!
