"Born Free" as written by and Marlon Young Robert James Ritchie....
Fast, on a rough road riding
High, through the mountains climbing
Twisting, turning further from my home.
Young, like a new moon rising
Fierce, through the rain and lightning
Wandering out into this great unknown.

And I don't want no one to cry, but tell em'
If I don't survive

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born Free

Free, like a river raging
Strong, if the wind I'm facing.
Chasing dreams and racing father time.
Deep like the grandest canyon,
Wild like an untamed stallion.
If you can't see my heart you must be blind.

You can knock me down and watch me bleed
But you can't keep no chains on me.

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born Free

And I'm not good at long goodbyes but look down
Deep into my eyes.

I was born free!

Hey yaya yayaya
Oh hoo

Calm facing danger
Lost, like an unknown stranger
Grateful for my time with no regrets.

Close to my destination
Tired, frail and aching
Waitin' patiently for the sun to set

And when its done believe that
I will yell it from that mountain high

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born Free

And I will vow to the shining seas
And celebrate God's Grace on me.

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born Free

Oh, oh oh oh wah hoo

    General CommentI can't belive I'm the first to comment on this, this is such a good song and perfect for the open road on a summer day. The meaning is obvious, it's about being free and letting time run it's course and making the most of it.

    General CommentIt was only added yesterday so thats why. It's an okay song and an okay album but won't ever be on the same level as his Cocky album. He's a better singer than he gets credit for though...

    General CommentI think he had a break through with this song, clashes a Mellencamp and Springsteen style.
    As for the song meaning, pretty much just being free and no one and thing can change that

    General Commentthis song is awesome kid rock is such an under rated artist....this song is about being free living life to the fullist its a great song....listening to kid when he started out and being more of a fast paced rocker who was a "pimp of the nation" or the "american bad ass" and to see how he has evolved to a more soulfull rocker is just amazing....the way he used to have a fuck the world im going to do what i want attitude and now he looks back on his life in his songs puts great meaning and emotion in his songs....i loved kid when he started out and i love him even more now.

    General CommentJust an awful, awful song...generic chord changes, generic message and meaning, formulaic structure. I'm embarrassed that it became as popular as it did. Not trying to be a hater, but honestly, this is a song that never needed to be written in the first place.
