Born to Be a Rolling Stone  Slim Dusty

[B7] [E]  
[Verse 1] 
As the [E]years roll on I tramp along be[F#]side them,
never [B7]have no cares so never need to hide [E]them.
From the sunny north down to the south I [A]roam,[F#]
For I [B7]guess that I was born a rolling [E]stone.
[Verse 2] 
Sometimes I settle down and the road forg[F#]ets me,
Then the [B7]wanderlust comes on and soon upsets [E]me,
So I down tools and I just leave work al[A]one,[F#]
For I [B7]guess that I was born a rolling [E]stone.
My [B7]mates are far and many as I [A]tramp through out the [E]years,
[A]Some are rich and [E]some are poor but [F#]o'er a glass of [B7]beer,
They're all [E]decent blokes who share a joke with [F#]no distinction shown,
And [B7]they're the mates of this old rolling [E]stone.
[E]yeah, I just take it easy you know.
(Following the chord structure of the verses)
[Verse 3] 
[E]How my life has changed, to me it seems like [F#]magic,
From what [B7]I used to be, some say it's tra[E]gic, (Ha ha)
Oh but that's a story better left a[A]lone,[F#]
For I g[B7]uess that I was born a rolling s[E]tone.
[Verse 4] 
[E]So when I'm on the track and camped beside the [F#]highway,
Just a-[B7]lazing back a-gazing at God's sky[E]way,
Will my footsteps ever reach that golden [A]throne,[F#]
Will they [B7]ever welcome in this rolling [E]stone
