Lyrics
Born on the back streets
50 years ago
Torn from my mother's womb
And laid out in the snow

God made my heart hard
Pain made me a man
But what made me straighten up
Was my father's calloused hand

Hard labor pays my way
With the stain of sweat and blood
The scars that line my face
Mark this road I'm on


God made my heart hard
Pain made me a man
But what made me straighten up
Was my father's calloused hand


God made my heart hard
Pain made me a man

Does what is says on the tin!
Nice tune! Like the guitar. Suggests a sort vicious circle, momentum and then a pause, though it does gather force towards the end of the song.

Thanks for the post.

I really like that rhythm guitar sound. There's a little bit of a Stones vibe here!
