Lynyrd Skynyrd

"Born to Run"

[Verse 1]
There's an old man sitting on a front porch now
Talking about how it used to be
When I was young I was a hell of a man
My father died when I was ten
I hit the road to find a job
Had to feed my family
Times were hard my hands are still scarred
From the life I've had to lead
I was born to run
Drove a tractor and trailer all my life
Six kids and a hell of a wife
Made lots of money it all slipped away
A large family that's the price you pay
I always dreamed never gave up
Son, even when times got tough
That's when I'd push it a little bit more
You should've heard that engine roar

[Chorus]
I was born to run
Can't slow down
No regrets, I've been blessed
Born to run
In time you'll see what the good Lord's done for me
Born to run
I can't slow down
No regrets, I did my best
Born to run
In time you'll see
What the good Lord's done, done for me

[Verse 2]
The old man, he passed away
And all he said never crossed my mind
Until I saw the price he payed
Was a lot like mine
I'm full and though it's miles away
Gotta hit the city right on time
And when I'm on I'll always sing little song of mine
I was born to run

[Chorus]
