WAND'RIN STAR
(Lerner - Loewe)
LEE MARVIN (Paramount 0010, 1969)
From the 1969 Joshua Logan film "Paint Your Wagon"

I was born under a wand'rin star
I was born under a wand'rin star
Wheels are made for rollin', mules are made to pack
I've never seen a sight that didn't look better lookin' back
I was born under a wand'rin star
Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry
Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to
Which, with any luck, will never come true
I was born under a wand'rin star
I was born under a wand'rin star
Do I know where hell is? Hell is in "hello"
Heaven is goodbye, forever is time for me to go
I was born under a wand'rin star
A wand'rin, wand'rin star

[Choir]
Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry
Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry
Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to
Which, with any luck, will never come true
I was born under a wand'rin star
I was born under a wand'rin star

When I get to heaven, tie me to a tree
For I'll begin to roamin' soon, you know where I will be
I was born under a wand'rin star
A wand'rin, wand'rin star
