about

Words and music by Erik Walters

lyrics

When I dreamed a highway
Across a desert night
From the last payphone in Houston
I called her up to say goodbye

Mama said I would be something
If I worked and spent the time
But I chose my own way
Over slaving nine to five

Guess I was

Born to run
Born to ride
Made to live
Doomed to die
God or no God
Damned if I do or don't
Born and raised
To follow my own road

Feeling restless
I was working day and night
Waiting for someone to take my hand
And hand me a brand new life

Mama said I would be something
If I tried my best to shine
But I'd rather spend my days
Chasing these yellow painted lines

Born to run
Born to ride
Made to live
Doomed to die
God or no God
Damned if I do or don't
Born and raised
To follow my own road

It's easy to get angry
It's harder to ask why
The world ain't going your way
You say "It ain't no fault of mine"
But who can you blame this time?

Born to run
Born to ride
Made to live
Doomed to die
God or no God
Damned if I do or don't
Born and raised
To follow my own road

Born and raised
To follow my own road
