Like a restless leaf in the autumn breeze
Once I was a tumblin' weed
Like a rollin' stone, cold and all alone
Living for the day my train would come

I never cared for school or any golden rules
Papa used to always say I was a useless fool
So I left my home to show them they was wrong
And headed out on the road singing my song

Then one sunny day, the man, he looked my way
And everything that I dreamed of, it was real
Money, girls and cars and big long cigars
And I caught the first plane home so papa would see

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Papa, I only wish you could see me now

Take a listen papa
Woo, I learnt how to play my guitar
Gonna be a superstar

[Incomprehensible] for mama now

First I got lost, then I got found
The ones I love are in the ground
Won't you tell me please was I right or wrong?

If there's any way you can hear what I say
Papa, I never meant to do you wrong
All the money, girls and cars and all the words and all the cigars
Papa, I just want you to know they couldn't take your place

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
