I was born  under a wanderin' star,
I was born under a wanderin' star.
Wheels are made for rollin', mules are made to pack;
I've never seen a sight that didn't look better lookin' back.
I was born under a wanderin' star, a
Wand'rin', wand'rin' star.

(Bridge:)
Mud can make you prisoner 
And the plains can make you dry;
Smoke can burn your eyes, 
But only people make you cry.
Home was made for comin' from, 
And dreams of goin' to,
Which, with any luck, will never come true.

I was born under a wanderin' star,
I was born under a wanderin' star.
Do I know where hell is?  Hell is in "Hello."
Heaven is "Good bye forever, it's time for me to go."
I was born under a wanderin' star,
A wanderin', wanderin' star.

(Repeat Bridge)

I was born under a wanderin' star,
I was born under a wanderin' star.
When I get to heaven, better tie me to a tree,
Or I'll be off to roam again, you know where I will be.
I was born under a wanderin' star,
A wanderin', wanderin' star.
