Ray Price - Ramblin' Rose Lyrics

Ramblin' rose ramblin' rose why you ramble no one knows
Wild and wind blown that's how you've grown who can cling to a ramblin' rose

Ramble on ramble on when you're ramblin' days are gone
Who will love you with a love true when you're ramblin' days are gone

Ramblin' rose ramblin' rose why I want you heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true but who can cling to a ramblin' rose

Ramblin' rose ramblin' rose why I want you heaven knows
Though I love you with a love true but who can cling to a ramblin' rose

Ray Price Ramblin' Rose Comments
  1. Rose Walsh

    Beautiful love song. A 4 R ALWAYS AND FOREVER

  2. Sala Mboweni

    Each time this melody played in our household back in the 60s, there was peace & harmony.

  3. Keith Sage

    I bit of the Mitch Miller singers in the background.

  4. Jorge Mario Rodas

    For me this is one of those unforgettable songs of my teen years. I lked so much to hear it so I frequently called the radio station to please play it for me. I like the lyrics so well sung by Nat.

  5. Vadim Smirnov

    Earthlinked IMHO it is not quite relevant, neither symmetric to pinpoint particular element in vast arsenal of singers' faculties for comparing them in matters of rating and popularity.  Bieber had and Nat didn't have that notorious "pitch perfect voice". What is this and, more important, so what?! Should we overestimate this purely technical subtlety that looks a trifle on the background of much bigger phenomenon? More so, when we talk about performers of different age and entirely different genre. Nat is among the greatest singers of all times, no lesser than Frank Sinatra, for that matter. This is the thought that comes and lingers the moment I hear his soothing  velvety voice with smooth huskiness.. No offence.

    Who was this white citizen? Sounds like an urban legend.


  7. Francis Hay

    One of favourite singers my Dad 💜 listened to

    Nat King Cole Songs.

  10. hal payne

    Silvio Dante was shot while this song was on The Sopranos.

    Danny Thomas

    It brought me here. Poor Silvio.


    Nat King Cole- I was 7 years old when this was released in 1962- and I never forgot this song!

  12. Marion H

    If this song doesn't tug at your heartstrings and bring back memories,nothing ever will......just Beautiful..Nat was one great musician..

  13. Chris A

    To my grandmother now in heaven... Taught me the real meaning of music. Dedicated to you granny... Rest well and I'll see you again soon.

  14. Jason Latham

    I never forget Judge Ellen Morphonious from Circuit 11 Miami this was her favourite song

  15. Calvin Sirjue


  16. Gerald Murphy

    Nat King Cole, a legion of all times. He will be remembered for a long -long time. 👍🎼

  17. Susan Grimm

    Use to listen to this song a lot when I was a little girl.

  18. Carol Bridges

    Heaven on earth

  20. Patrick O'Brien

    My nanny Mena O'Brien favor . She was our queen. Nanny Mena ur the best mother I every ave ardore u

  21. Rodrigo Caballero

    the blue comet brought me here.

  22. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Another of those beautiful songs I liked to hear as a teenager. It brings to me many sweet memories of my High School days. And as the song says one does not know why one wants to be with a person, one only feels it without knowing the reason or when it started.

  23. ann barry

    theres only one Nat King Cole such a wonderful voice

  24. Talmage d'Ur

    sunshine -- insouciance - days of roses and smiles.
    Be well in your (precious) mind-heart.
    De mon Coeur aux Vôtres.
    ~L x

  25. Graham Turner

    The BBC made an excellent documentary about Nat a few years back - keep an eye out for it. On such programs they always have the subject's peers saying how wonderful they were, but in this case you could tell that they genuinely meant it. One guy, can't remember who, said 'sometimes you just have to accept that the other guy is better than you'. 'nuff said.

  26. Graham Turner

    A mate's local pub in Newcastle had a jukebox that played LPs - this is back around 1972. He said that Nat King Cole's LP was nearly worn out.

  27. Jorge Mario Rodas

    This is a very nice love song and Nat's voice makes it something special really. I used to hear it a lot in my last two years of High School, and whenever I hear it again I remember those times. Nice memories this song brings to me.

  28. Arlena Campbell

    Thank you for uploading this.

  29. Arlena Campbell

    My Father played this song all the time when I was a little girl. I miss him so very much.

  30. Marjorie Townsend

    Lov his beautiful voice

  31. William McLean

    There is music, and there is real music.

  32. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Now I hear it this song reminds me the summer of 1962. I was swimming in a beach resort and had plenty of fun dancing with girls I never saw again. But I was carefree and my parents paid the bills.

  33. albert dean castillo

    One of the best

  34. Richard Hopp

    Still a favorite of Mine … I was just turning 6 when this song came out … Love it!!!

  35. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Nat King Cole was really a King. What a stupendous voice he had! I like to hear this song which reminds me of my last years in High School. Things have changed so much since then and there are so many places I used to know that have changed beyond recognition. But I still remember them when I hear songs like this one.

  36. Terri DelTour

    My grandma rose favorite song💕🙋🏻‍♀️

  37. Swarna Shanmugalingam

    Lovely Nat king Cole

  38. Swarna Shanmugalingam

  39. Teresa Gallonty

    Another one of your favorite songs Mum. On the anniversary of when you passed away. For you Mum.

  40. steve fraser27

    Me Grandad liked this,as I do

  41. Tim O'Connor

    "If you don't like Nat King Cole - it's not that you're *cool* - it's just that you're *too* cool" - to paraphrase Charles Shaar Murray.

    This song would have been great in a some Liverpool post WW2 film - a singalong in the pub - pints sloshing in the air while your auntie slips away with some Brylcreemed lad....

    A film like "Distant Voices Still Lives" from the 1980s - that film really choked me up.

  42. Tommy Persson

    NAT king Cole and sam cook elvis presley and rick nelson have good voice to and song with 🌹🌹🌹❤️❤️❤️💖💖👍😇my heart like this music oldies doo wop


    Great song!!!

  44. Clyde P

    Popular fairly late in 1962. Not the same song as the Perry Como song of late 1948.

  45. Paul Drake

  46. Tim Roebuck

    This song comes from a time when beautiful music was still being created and Mr. Cole always sang superbly. His singing was always flawless and his songs are timeless classics. Thank you Mr. Cole.

  72. music love

    Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
    Why you ramble, no one knows
    Wild and wind blown, that's how you've grown
    Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?
    Ramble on, ramble on
    When your ramblin' days are gone
    Who will love you with a love true
    When your ramblin' days are gone?
    Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
    Why I want you, heaven knows
    Though I love you with a love true
    Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?
    Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
    Why I want you, heaven knows
    Though I love you with a love true
    Who can cling to a ramblin' rose?

    Love his voice

  82. Vicky Tipton

    still a great song...after all these years

  83. Mookie Spindlehurst

    This 1962 smash #1 hit was one that kept the tradition of great song writing going on
    for a few more years until a steady year by year declination occurred as all the great irreplaceable tune smiths and lyricists lost their spark or died out.
    Andrew L. Webber's
    "MEMORY" pretty much ended it all by 1981, with only a few spotty good songs now and then.
