    Same reason people don't slow down to watch traffic moving normally and safely.

    That said, the world is full of love songs.

    lots of songs about married men
    listen to some old school female country singers
    tammy wynette for instance

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    "They have a lot of stupid people that vote in their primaries. They really do. I'm not really supposed to say that but it's an obvious fact. But when stupid people vote, you know who they nominate? Other stupid people." -- James Carville on the plethora of low-quality GQP candidates in the mid-term election.

    Well, there you have it. I thought my English was pretty good, but I had no idea that's what rambling man means!

    Then again, I like the song for the awesome guitar...

    Dickey Betts wrote Ramblin Man.

    The Allman Brothers covered an Elmore James song that portrays another aspect of free-ranging masculinity. Some free-ranging femininity, as well.
