lyrics

As I sat myself down besides the foreign river shore,
Where I was lowercased all but erased and more,
You thrust the harp in my hand and you asked me would I sing,
I said I’d love to do you one fit for the king.


You said “Hey, oughtn’t you say ‘may he live forever’?”
“Well, I never! I was
Born wild and free beneath open skies.


And if I never ride that way again
Still you won’t catch me pretendin’ I could care less if your monarch lives or dies.


Well, the lyrics catch in my throat, and my voice grows rough and hoarse,
When I think about my home back in the North.


And all I do is sit and wait to hear them church bells ring,
To toll the death of that jackass you call king.


So I no I will not say “may he live forever”
Now or ever! I was
Born wild and free beneath open skies.


And if I never ride that way again
Still you won’t catch me pretendin’ I could care less if your monarch lives or dies.


I can’t sing my song in this land and it’s not for lack of tryin,
I remember you, I do, no gods or masters but the Lion!


You said “Hey, oughtn’t you say ‘may he live forever’?”
“Well, I never! I was
Born wild and free beneath open skies.
(Born wild and free beneath open skies x a lot)


And if I never ride that way again
Still you won’t catch me pretendin’ I could care less if your monarch lives or dies.


That I could care less if your monarch lives or dies.
