Johnny Cash - Roughneck lyrics

Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothin' Pullin' case and layin' pipe Is hard labor Well, I was born in a boomer shack 'Bout a half mile from town Papa was a driller on a wildcat crew And my mama never was around I learn to cuss when I was two And fight when I was three And by the time I was five there was no kid alive Could ever get the best of me Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothin' Pullin' case and layin' pipe Is hard labor Well, I started workin' like a regular man When I was just about knee high Skinning the knuckles with my two bare hands But they never heard me cry I remember walkin' down the road And hearin' somebody say He was born to live a rougneck's life And he's never gonna change his ways Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothin' Pullin' case and layin' pipe Is hard labor Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothin' Pullin' case and layin' pipe Is hard labor
