Born in 1963
In the shadow of Kennedy
I'm still a kid when the levee breaks
Man, oh man, that's all it takes

And I'm on my way

Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues
Where you come from
If you walk across those railroad tracks
Son, you're on your own
But all I know is what I feel, and it can't be wrong
Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues
Where you come from
Where you come from
It's just not done

Back in black and I'm 17
I've been told, son, let it be
I got these lines upon my face now
A room at the heartbreak hotel
Yeah yeah

Oh well, oh well
Ah yeah

Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues
Where you come from
If you walk across those railroad tracks
Son, you're on your own
All I know is what I feel, and it can't be wrong
Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues
Where you come from
Where you come from
It's just not done

Oh well, oh well
Alright

Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues
Where you come from
If you walk across those railroad tracks
Son, you're on your own
But all I know is what I feel, and it can't be wrong
Boy, you're not supposed to sing the blues

Where you come from
Where you come from
It's just not done

    Born in 1963, in the shadow of "camende"?
    Still a kid when the levee breaks
    Man or man that's all it takes.

    And i'm on my way

    Boy you're not supposed to sing the blues, where you come from.
    If you walk across those railroad tracks, son you're on you're own
    All i know is what i feel, and it can't be wrong.
    Boy you're not supposed to sing the blues,
    Where you come from , where you come from
    It's just not done..

    Back in black and i'm 17
    I've been told son, let it be
    I've got these lines upon my face, now
    We met at the heartbreak hotel, yeah yeah

    Oh well oh well

    Boy you're not supposed to sing the blues, where you come from
    If you walk across those railroad tracks, son you're on you're own
    All i know is what i feel, and it can't be wrong
    Boy you're not supposed to sing the blues, where you come from , where you come from
    You know it's just not done .. It's just not done.. Come from.. Just not done

    Oh well oh well
