When I was just a little baby
My mama held my hand
Tried to hold me steady all she could
But I pulled just like a full-grown man
Now mama was a real fine woman
Only angel I've ever known
Guess I must have turned out more like my daddy
A chip off the rollin' stone

Sometimes I wake up sweatin'
Yeah, eyes open wide
I feel like a freight train comin'
I wish I knew the reason why
Why do I feel like running

I love the life I'm livin'
I've made myself a happy home
I've got a woman who's in love with a man
But she's worried about my gypsy bone

Sometimes I wake up sweatin'
Yeah, eyes open wide
I feel like a freight train comin'
I wish I knew the reason why
Why do I feel like running

I tell her I ain't never leavin'
I only travel with my mind
A part of her knows that I'm in it for the long haul
But part of her knows I'm lyin'

Sometimes I wake up sweatin'
Yeah, eyes open wide
I feel like a freight train comin'
I wish I knew the reason why
Why do I feel like running

Why do I feel like running
Why do I feel like running
Why do I feel like running
Why do I feel like running
Yeah
I guess it's just my daddy's blood
That's right
