Blues/Rock song I wrote about my past. Sometimes its great to be born on the right side, even if it is the wrong side of the tracks. My good friend Jay Ramsey did the Guitar and Harmonica and I did the rest---Lyrics, Melody and Vocals.

Story behind the song
Some people always make opinions predicated on where you live or where you come from. So, I hopefully did come from the Right Side---of the Wrong Side of the Track.
Lyrics
WRONG SIDE OF THE TRACK It certainly makes a difference, on that most folks agree. It’s where you’re born and raised that will form your pedigree, You don’t have to lay there sobbin’ Just a cryin’ in your bed Pick yourself up by your boot straps like so many people said. It’s an up-hill road to travel And you know you won’t go back You’re Born on the right side Of the wrong side of the track. Turn It’s a “natural fact”, things just happen, that’a way. People forming their opinions , listenin’ to what other people say. It ain’t gonna be easy, changing peoples minds they’re locked into believing you’re just one of “those kind”. It’s an up-hill road to travel And you know you won’t go back You’re Born On the right side of the wrong side of the track. Instrumental It’s a Simple indication, People judging by your birth Where you were born Doesn’t qualify your worth Change will overcome the prejudice of our past A clean slate for all Then a New Dream at last It’s an up-hill road to travel and you know you won’t go back You’re Born On the right side of the wrong side of the track. (repeat last 4 Lines)
