Well I was born in the Southland yes I was
Some twenty odd years ago
I ran away from home for the first time
When I was four years old

I’m a freeborn man get my home here on my back yes I have
And I know every inch of highway
Every foot of backroad every mile of rairoad track

I got a gal in in Cincinnati a woman in San Antone
I’ve always loved the girl next door but anyplace is home

I’m a freeborn man….

Well you may not like my appearance you may not like my song
You may not like the way I talk but you’ll like the way I’m gone

I’m a freeborn man….
I’m a freeborn man freeborn man yeah yeah
