I don't know why I drink so much can't even stand the test
But liquid courage helps me through my day
If I take time to stop and think the booze just goes to waste
I'm still the same cause I was born that way
My love walked out and mama cried I've heard she even cursed
And said I'm turning off my family grey
Of all the kids she raised no doubt Stonewall turned out the worse
Guess I must have just been born that way
I guess there's a streak of sorry burried in each man
And it always shows up now and then
Mine wasn't burried deep enough it's got the upper hand
Cause that line between the good and bad's so thin
The preacher said my only chance was to be born again
So I got bowties and tried so hard to break
But the devil in me laughed and danced when I went back to sin
Guess I must have just been born that way
I'm just no good cause I was born that way what can I do when I was born that way
