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 owl's serenade.

When that fire burned down to ashes
Daddy stared out the window pane
Momma knew without askin'
Her travelin' man had no plans to stay
And his gypsy blood's a rushin' through my veins

Chorus
I came out cryin', wailin' like an old freight train
Nurse tried to hold me, but I just pushed her away!
Momma took to prayin', doc said "He can't be saved
Ma'am your baby boy's heart's already broken"
I was born lonesome

So girl try to forgive me
If your goodbye don't send tears down my face
Whether you leave me tonight or stay her with me
I'll wake up feeling empty either way
I'm at the mercy of my DNA

Repeat Chorus 2 times

No girl, you can't break a heart already broken!
I was born lonesome
