Ramblin' around this dirty old town,
Little hotel, older than Hell,
A preacher will preach, and a teacher will teach,
October 1, 2014: Thanks to Jason, who wrote in and provided the following information on alternate verses.
Tom sang a French verse to it in the Live in the UK album, which was written by French folksinger Graeme Allwright:
The following verse in the In the Orchard album:
I went to the zoo for an hour or two,
And the weather was pleasant and fine.
While wanderin’ by a gorilla said, "Hi,
Did you have a little bottle of wine?"
The following verse in several live albums including Best of Friends and Live at McCabe's:
While strugglin' through to meet the latest guru,
I was the two-hundredth person in line.
I turned to a friend and saw the same in the end.
Why don't we get a little bottle of wine?
