I ain't got no claim to nothing,
I don't mess with anyone,
I walk my way
Living in a masquerade.

And one day I looked behind me
At all the things I've done,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
In a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
Who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

With a million hearts I've broken.
I never kept the score.
Memories of good love
Hate to stay.

But I still remember someone
Who loved me so much more,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

So, when nothing's worth the living
And in the night I look above.
Prayed, about a million times
I prayed.

I know my story ended
When I lost my only love,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
In a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
Who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.
