Lyrics

  • WELL I WAS BORN ON THE SIDE OF A ROAD
  • A GAP IN THE HEDGE DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID
  • BORN IN A HOUSE WITH NO SLATES
  • BUT I WOULDN’T SWITCH I DIDN’T HAVE A STITCH
  • ALWAYS BEEN OUT ON A LIMB
  • I’VE BEEN HARD TO MEND LIKE A KICK IN THE SHIN
  • YOU’LL ONLY SEE ME SMILE WHEN I EAT UP A COUNTRY MILE
  • BORN ON THE GREENLIGHT A MISSION TO MOVE
  • SOMETHING TO PROD AN ITCH IN MY SHOES
  • I HEARD THE WAIL OF A TRAIN FROM A BURNIN’ STACK
  • AND I JUMPED ON THE BACK
  • THE ENGINEER THROUGH THE SWITCH AND IT GOT TO MY BRAIN
  • I’VE NEVER BEEN THE SAME
  • YOU’LL ONLY SEE ME SMILE WHEN I EAT UP A COUNTRY MILE
  • GOTTA TO MAKE TRACKS, GOTTA LOSE SOME RUST
  • GREASE MY HEELS, OUTRACE THE BUS
  • DON’T BLINK YOUR EYES OR YOU WON’T SEE ME AGAIN
  • WELL I WAS BORN A SPOKE OF THE WHEEL
  • NOT PART OF A SET AND I’M RUNNING YET
  • I RAN BEFORE I COULD WALK THE PRICE OF THE FARE
  • WAS HARDLY EVER THERE
  • SAW AN EIGHT-WHEELER MOVE
  • I COULDN’T CHOOSE I JUST HAD TO CRUISE
  • YOU’LL ONLY SEE ME SMILE WHEN I EAT UP A COUNTRY MILE
  • WELL I WAS BORN ON THE SIDE OF A ROAD
  • A GAP IN THE HEDGE DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID
  • BORN IN A HOUSE WITH NO SLATES
  • BUT I WOULDN’T SWITCH I DIDN’T HAVE A STITCH
  • ALWAYS BEEN OUT ON A LIMB
  • I’VE BEEN HARD TO MEND LIKE A KICK IN THE SHIN
  • YOU’LL ONLY SEE ME SMILE WHEN I EAT UP A COUNTRY MILE
  • GOTTA TO MAKE TRACKS, GOTTA LOSE SOME RUST
  • GREASE MY HEELS, OUTRACE THE BUS
  • DON’T BLINK YOUR EYES OR YOU WON’T SEE ME AGAIN
