Don't matter what my name is
Don't matter what my skin is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right

Chorus
I guess I'm born to lose, ummmm
'cause execution did draw near
I got them steel bar blues

Am I innocent or guilty, man
Dare I say yes, I guess I am
I don't feel no pain no more
Ain't no sunshine, that's for sure

Chorus
I guess I'm born to lose
'cause execution did draw near
I got them steel bar blues

Yes I do.......

Don't matter what my name is
Don't matter what my skin is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right
Don't matter what time it is
Don't matter if I'm black or white
Don't matter if I'm wrong or...right
