Born To Be A Rolling Stone - Gene Vincent

Born To Be A Rolling Stone

Gene Vincent

(Jerry Merritt, CHALLENGE 59365, 1967)

I was born to be a rolling stone
Born to be a rolling stone
Movin' round witout a home, rolling stone

I rented a house in Dallas
About three years ago
I'd still be livin' in Dallas
But I heard a whistle blow

I was born to be a rolling stone
Born to be a rolling stone
Movin' round witout a home, rolling stone

I went over to London
And Lordy, what a swingin' town
But a fast talkin' phoney with a big cigar
Tried to bring me down

I was born to be a rolling stone
Born to be a rolling stone
Movin' round witout a home, rolling stone

I was born to be a rolling stone
Born to be a rolling stone
Movin' round witout a home, rolling stone
