lyrics

My mama told me son, when I was oh so young,
When you grow up you’ll be, the pride of the family

Things didn't turn out that way, but still I did okay,
Stuck between mud and grace, I guess I've found my place

And if you let me down, I will find my way round,
Cause I’m experienced, in any circumstance

What didn’t kill me then, just made me stronger now,
The little ugly duck, has had a change of luck

Fierce as river and wild as a storm,
Lit rag in a bottle just about to explode,
No one will ever know the battles I fought,
Why must I always be the odd one out

My papa told me son, if you want to be someone,
Don’t join a traveling band, you act like a grown man

I turned a blind eye, and I went with my guts,
If you cast your own play, you’ll always make the cut

Fierce as river and wild as a storm,
Lit rag in a bottle just about to explode,
No one will ever know the battles I fought,
Why must I always be the odd one out

My mama told me son, when I was oh so young,
When you grow up you’ll be, the pride of the family

Things didn't turn out that way, but still I did okay,
Stuck between mud and grace, I guess I've found my place

Life throws you many traps, you must try to avoid,
I know that all things pass, and pain can’t rival joy

A lesson you can learn, the moral of this tale,
Take the long and hard road, and you will rarely fail

What didn’t kill me then, just made me stronger now,
Why must I always be the odd one out,
No one will ever know the battles I fought,
Guess I was born to be the odd one out

Fierce as river and wild as a storm,
Lit rag in a bottle just about to explode,
No one will ever know the battles I fought,
Why must I always be the odd one out,
Guess I was born to be the odd one out
