Lyrics

I was born in Colorado, grew up in Idaho
Rode broncs in Lubbock Texas, that was Buddy Holly’s home
Left a girl in Santa Fe before I left for New Orleans
She said, “I’ll be waiting for you every night in my dreams”

Well I was born to wander and I was born to roam
Seems I was born to spend my life somewhere on the road
Don’t ask me where I’m headed next an’ don’t ask me where I’ve been
Don’t call me in the morning, just call me the restless wind

Route 66 took me to Tulsa, joined a band in Wichita
Played honky-tonks from Kansas City right down to Arkansas
I’d like to spend some time in Nashville, play some good ol’ country songs
Get on that Grand Old Opry, on that stage all night long

Well I was born to wander and I was born to roam
Seems I was born to spend my life somewhere on the road
Don’t ask me where I’m headed next an’ don’t ask me where I’ve been
Don’t call me in the morning, just call me the restless wind

Should go to North Carolina, there’s some friends I’d like to see
Spend a day or two with them until the road starts callin’ me
Don’t know where it’s gonna take me, could be back to where I’ve been
Guess I’ll just go to where it’s goin’ to, just like the restless wind

Well I was born to wander and I was born to roam
Seems I was born to spend my life somewhere on the road
Don’t ask me where I’m headed next an’ don’t ask me where I’ve been
Don’t call me in the morning, just call me the restless ---
I was born to wander and I was born to roam
Seems I was born to spend my life somewhere on the road
Don’t know where it’s gonna take me, could be back to where I’ve been
Guess I’ll just go to where it’s goin’ to, just like the restless wind
