"Born Again" as written by Allan Wayne Felder and Norman Ray Harris....
I’ve been feeling like my old self again
Because mama didn’t raise me to be no Christian
I’ve been drinkin’ to my own health again
Well, raise another glass for you’re unforgiven

You know I will, you know I will

I’ve been livin’ in a motel of sin
But I wouldn’t trade my life for the one you’re livin’
I’ve been walkin’ that long mile again
‘Cause I’d never fit the shoes like the ones you were given

And we all lose ourselves in the end
And we all just wanna get high, won’t you help me friend?
And did you ever see that sun come shinin’ in?
Well, then get born again
Get born again

I’ve been livin’ in the old cell again
I wanna spend the day in the cold and freezin’
I’ve been talkin’ about my own hell again
‘Cause I’ve never met a soul like the one I was missin’

And we all lose ourselves in the end
And we all just wanna get high, won’t you help me friend?
And did you ever see that sun shinin’ in?
Well, get born again
Get born again
Get born again

And we all just wanna get high, won’t you help me friend?
‘Cause we all may lose ourselves in the end
Have you ever seen that sun come shinin’ in?
Yea, get born again
Get born again
Get born again

I’ve been feelin’ like my old self again
Because mama didn’t raise me to be no victim

    General CommentThis is an awesome song. Saw Cory open for Brendan Benson at first avenue in Mpls. MN. His whole CD, Death Won't Send a Letter, is pretty good. "And we all lose ourselves in the end, And we all just wanna get high, won't you help me friend?"
