I was born to wander, I like bein' alone
Sellin' snake oil to fools is how I get along
I do what I want, never wore no suit
And I keep my money in a cowboy boot

Now I'm way past thirty and I'm gettin' tired
I got nothin' to show for my ramblin' life
But a bunch of grey hairs and an achin' liver
And a million promisses I couldn't deliver
I got so much baggage if I put it in a sack
And tried to carry it around it would break my back
And I don't know a soul who gives a hoot
I got no more money in my cowboy boot

My papa died when I was 16
Had to grow up fast, I got a little mean
My mama ran off with her drug dealer
It's been ten years since I even seen her

Now I'm way past thirty and I'm gettin' tired
I got nothin' to show for my ramblin' life
But a bunch of grey hairs and an achin' liver
And a million promisses I couldn't deliver
I got so much baggage if I put it in a sack
And tried to carry it around it would break my back
And I don't know a soul who gives a hoot
I got no more money in my cowboy boot

Now my body's broke down like an old junk car
And the juice I got left wouldn't fill up a jar
If I wanted to I couldn't buy no suit
I got no more money in my cowboy boot

I've lived my life with no regrets
Now all I can do is a second guess
Not a single one of my dreams came true
They all slipped through the hole in my cowboy boot

Now I'm way past thirty and I'm gettin' tired
I got nothin' to show for my ramblin' life
But a bunch of grey hairs and an achin' liver
And a million promisses I couldn't deliver
I got so much baggage if I put it in a sack
And tried to carry it around it would break my back
And I don't know a soul who gives a hoot
I got no more money in my cowboy boot
