Kid Rock - Born Free Lyrics

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 is 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

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

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

And when it's 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 bow to the shining seas
And celebrate God's grace on thee

I was born free

    After 11 days on a ventilator & drug induced coma with only 1 hr at a time life expectancy, I woke up to hear"Born Free"! I knew I was alive and from that day until now,I still get that same feeling......if I dont survive,just remember "I was Born Free"
    Thanks Bob!!😎

    Some folks in their posts are making this an argument over politics. I don't think that Kid Rock was making a political statement here - He was just showing his DEEP LOVE for his country. Our country. There is a big difference between patriotism and politics.

    Why can't we ALL, no matter what political stripes we wear, just agree that this is a BEAUTIFUL song that brings out the very best in each of us? Are we not ALL proud to be Americans? Folks, music is universal. It is what brings us together.

    Let us remember, as this wonderful and patriotic song plays, that the ideals that unify us are greater than the petty arguments that the media will use to divide us for ratings. And both sides have plenty of guilt in this nonsense.

    I say this - Let us 'agree' on the many things we hold dear, like raising our children in peace and giving support to our troops. Let us 'agree to disagree' on some subjects, but respect each other and 'reach across the aisle' to find compromise and move forward together. Let us still have lively conversation with friends and neighbors over a few beers, while still remaining good friends and neighbors at the end of the day.

    Let's ALL rock out to this wonderful song. Let's ALL appreciate the freedoms we were born with, paid for in full by the sacrifices of those who fought in the generations before us and the generations yet to come.

    God Bless Kid Rock for this amazing song. And God Bless America. Democracy can be messy sometimes, but we are fortunate to have one.
    We were BORN FREE, folks. There are so many out there in this world who were not. THAT is what I think this song is about. Let us ALL be thankful, and kinder to each other..

    There is an arch located at the border crossing of Washington state and my home province of British Columbia. On it reads “Children Of A Common Mother.” Every time I pass through the border to visit the United States, I see that arch and am reminded that we have the greatest neighbour any country could ever ask for. God bless America and God bless Canada. 🇺🇸 🇨🇦

    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
