The wind blew cold on that mountain
On the night that I was made
Pale moonlight poured on that cabin
As shadows danced to a hoot owl's serenade

When that fire burned down to ashes
Daddy stared out the window pane
Momma knew without askin'
Her travelin' man had no plans to stay
And his gypsy blood's a rushin' through my veins

I came out cryin', wailin' like an old freight train
Nurse tried to hold me but I just pushed her away
Momma took to prayin', doc said, "He can't be saved
Ma'am your baby boy's heart's already broken"
I was born lonesome

So girl try to forgive me
If your goodbye don't send tears down my face
Whether you leave me tonight or stay here with me
I'll wake up feeling empty either way
I'm at the mercy of my DNA

I came out cryin', wailin' like an old freight train
Nurse tried to hold me but I just pushed her away
Momma took to prayin', doc said, "He can't be saved
Ma'am your baby boy's heart's already broken"
I was born lonesome

Came out cryin', like an old freight train
Nurse tried to hold me, I pushed her away
Momma took to prayin', doc said, "He can't be saved"
See girl, you can't break a heart already broken
I was born lonesome

No girl, you can't break a heart already broken
I was born lonesome
