Freeborn Man

by Greensky Bluegrass

Greensky Bluegrass is a five-piece American bluegrass/Country band founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in Mid-2000. The band has evolved over the years, growing from 3 to 5 members, adding electric effects and touring with a full light show. "The whole notion of “traditional bluegrass” strangely remains a sticking point for plenty of the genre's faithful. Partly because of their name, every article written about the band addresses the fact that what Greensky does is “not quite” bluegrass. These depths have been plumbed. In fact, in their own promotional material, GSBG describes their sound as “their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a stringband with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll.”




I was born in the Southland
Twenty-some odd years ago
Ran away for the first time honey
When I was four years old

I'm a freeborn man
My home is on my back
I know every inch of highway
Every foot of back road

Every mile of railroad track.
I got a lady in Cincinnati
A woman in San Anton'
I always love the gal next door
Honey, every place is home

I'm a freeborn man
My home is on my back
I know every inch of highway
Every foot of back road
Every mile of railroad track.

You may not like the way I look
You may not like my song
You may not like the way I Live
You'll love the way I'm gone

I'm a freeborn man
Home is on my back
I know every inch of highway
Every foot of back road
Every mile of railroad
Every mile of railroad
Every mile of railroad track
