lyrics

Well I was born in a place you'll never be,
'Bout as far as you can get from either shining sea.
Well I left my home, and I left my family,
When the ground turned to dust right below my feet.

And I was born with one foot out the door
Never to know home anymore.

I've been everywhere that a man could ever go.
Seen sun-baked deserts and 20-foot drifts of snow.
Drank wine in Queens, and beer in Mexico,
Been to the northern plains and the mines of Colorado.

And I was born with one foot out the door
Never to know home anymore.

And I was born on the run,
Yes I was born on the run.
Don't all these towns look the same?
As you watch them fly by from a passing train.

If I stayed a week that's a week I stayed too long.
No time to settle in 'fore I move right on.
Got to town at sunset, I'm leaving with the dawn.
By the time you wake up, I'll be long gone.

And I was born with one foot out the door
Never to know home anymore.

And I was born on the run,
Yes I was born on the run.
Don't all these towns look the same?
As you watch them fly by from a passing train.

Born on the run,
Yes I was born on the run.
Don't all these towns look the same?
As you watch them fly by from a passing train.
