Born Lonesome (Cadillac Sky)
The wind blew cold on that mountain
On the night that I was made
Pale moonlight poured on that cabin
As the shadows dance to a hoot owlâ€™s serenade.
When that fire burned down to ashes
Daddy stared out the window pane
Momma knew without askinâ€™
Her travelinâ€™ man had no plans to stay
And his gypsy bloodâ€™s a rushinâ€™ through my veins
I came out cryinâ€™, wailinâ€™ like an old freight train
Nurse tried to hold me, but I just pushed her away!
Momma took to prayinâ€™, doc said â€śHe canâ€™t be saved
Maâ€™am your baby boyâ€™s heartâ€™s already brokenâ€ť
I was born lonesome
So girl try to forgive me
If your goodbye donâ€™t send tears down my face
Whether you leave me tonight or stay her with me
Iâ€™ll wake up feeling empty either way
Iâ€™m at the mercy of my DNA
Repeat Chorus 2 times
No girl , you cant break a heart already broken!
I was born lonesome.
