When I left my home
I was not much more
Than a child,
My mother started crying
She knew that I was
Born to be wild.
'Cos I was looking for
The bright lights of the big
City,
A red hot town where
The girls are pretty.
I took to the highway,
Chasing my dream down
The line.
Heading out for trouble,
Never finding my peace
Of mind.
'Cos I been run out of
Town so many times
Before
An' usually kind of
Places where I can't go
Back no more.
Outlaw born outside of
The law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
I never find it easy trying
To keep the feeling alive,
I've always been a
Dreamer,
Dreamers find it hard to
Survive.
When they're living in the
Bright lights of the big
City,
A red hot town where
The girls are pretty.
Outlaw born outside of
The law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
Outlaw born outside of
The law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
(Solo)
Outlaw born outside of
The law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
Born outside of the law,
Just another outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
Outlaw, outlaw,
Man on the run will
Always take chances for
Fun.
