Born To Run

(Gary Rossington, Johnny Van-Zant, Ed King, Donnie Van Zant)

There's an old man sittin' on a front porch now

Talkin' 'bout 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



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


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


(repeat chorus)
