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 shins 
You only see me smile when I eat up a country mile 

Born on the green light, a mission to move, 
Something to groove, an itch in my shoes, 
I heard the wail of the train 
From a burning stack and I jumped on the back 
We'll the engineer threw the switch 
And got to my brain, I've never been the same 
You'll only see me smile when I eat up a country mile 

Gotta make tracks, gotta loose some rust, 
Grease my heels, I'll race to bust, 
Don't blink your eye or you won't see me again 

Well I was born on the spoke of a wheel, 
Not part of a set and I'm runnin' yet 
I ran before I could walk, 
The price of the fare was hardly ever there 
I saw an eighteen-wheeler move 
And 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 wrong side of the 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. 
I've always been out on a limb, 
I've been hard to mend like a kick in the shins 

Gotta make tracks, gotta raise the dust, 
Grease my heels, I'll race to bust, 
Don't blink an eye or you won't see me again
