lyrics to Born To Run (LP Version) / Emmylou Harris

Emmy Lou Harris
Born to run

Well I never did crawl and I never did tow the line
No man is master to me, I ain't that kind
I just put on my travellin' shoes
If you want to win you just can't lose the time,
Or stay behind
(Chorus)
Well.....I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And I ever wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free
And be someone
I was born to be fast
I was born to run
Well I take my chances
Sometimes I make mistakes
But you don't get nothin'
Unless you take the breaks
Livin' as dangerous as dynamite
Sure makes you feel nervous but it makes you feel alright
It makes you feel alright
(Chorus)
Well.....I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And all that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free
And be someone
I was born to be fast
I was born to run
Nobody's gonna make me do the things their way
By the time you figure it out it's yesterday
Well I'm gonna hear you answer no
But I don't need it when I'm old and grey
Yeah I want it today
(Chorus twice)
Well.....I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And I ever wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free
And be someone

(Paul Kennerley)
Well I never did crawl and I never did toe that line
No man is a master to me I ain't that kind
I just put on my traveling shoes
If you wanna win you just can't lose the time
Or stay behind
Well I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And all that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast I was born to run
Well I take the chances sometimes I've made mistakes
But you don't get nothing unless you take the breaks
Living as dangerous as dynamite
Sure makes you feel nervous but it makes you feel alright
Makes you feel alright
Well I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And all that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast I was born to run
Nobody's gonna make me do things their way
By the time you figure it out it's yesterday
Well it comes to he who waits I'm told
But I don't need it when I'm old and gray
Yea I want it today
Well I was born to run
To get ahead of the rest
And all that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast I was born to run
Cimarron (Warner Bros) (1981)
(Paul Kennerley)

Well, I never did crawl and I never did toe the line
No man is master to me, I ain't that kind
I just put on my travellin' shoes
if you want to win you just can't lose the time or stay behind.

Well, I was born to run, to get ahead of the rest
To know that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast, I was born to run.

I've taken chances there's times I've made mistakes
But you don't get a thing unless you take the breaks
Living as dangerous as dynamite sure makes you feel nervous
But it makes you feel all right makes you feel all right.

Well, I was born to run, to get ahead of the rest
To know that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast, I was born to run.

--- Instrumental ---

Nobody gonna make me do the things their way
By the time you figure it out it's yesterday
It comes to he who waits I'm told but I won't need it
When I'm old and gray, yeah, I want it today.

Well I was born to run, to get ahead of the rest
To know that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast, I was born to run.

I was born to run, to get ahead of the rest
To know that I wanted was to be the best
Just to feel free and be someone
I was born to be fast, I was born to run...

SONG MEANING / BACKGROUND INFO
What does Born To Run (LP Version) mean?

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-Emmylou Harris's career includes many deft covers of other artists' songs, such as Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty," "(You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie" by Chuck Berry, and "Mr. Sandman" by Pat Ballard, for which Harris was initially best-known. But a special relationship with a mentor expanded her confidence in her own songwriting abilities. Harris credits Gram Parsons with developing her as a musician and as a person: "I think you get to a certain point in your life where you do gaze back over the years and it's sort of a celebration or a thank-you for the fact that you cross paths with people who change you forever. Certainly Gram did that; I did come down walking in his shoes and trying to carry on for him. So I really just told that story the way I see it in my mind, the brief time we had and how I couldn't imagine that Gram wouldn't be around forever. Life goes on and unfolds before you, but those people and those events that change you forever are always with you. It was an important event that determined the trajectory of my life and, more than anything, of my work."
