Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothin'
Well I was born in a boomer shack bout a half mile from town
I learn to cuss when I was two and fight when I was three
Born to be a roughneck...
Well I started workin' like a regular man when I was just about knee high
I remember walkin' down the road and hearin' somebody say
Born to be a roughneck...
