B7   E             

[Verse 1]
       E                             F#
As the years roll on I tramp along beside them,
      B7                                  E
never have no cares so never need to hide them.
                                         A     F#
From the sunny north down to the south I roam,
      B7                              E
For I guess that I was born a rolling stone.

[Verse 2]
Sometimes I settle down and the road forgets me,
         B7                                  E
Then the wanderlust comes on and soon upsets me,
                                        A     F#
So I down tools and I just leave work alone,
      B7                              E
For I guess that I was born a rolling stone.

   B7                          A                     E
My mates are far and many as I tramp through out the years,
A                 E                 F#              B7
Some are rich and some are poor but o'er a glass of beer,
            E                                   F#
They're all decent blokes who share a joke with no distinction shown,
    B7                                    E
And they're the mates of this old rolling stone.
yeah, I   just take it easy you know.

(Following the chord structure of the verses)

[Verse 3]
E                                            F#
How my life has changed, to me it seems like magic,
          B7                             E
From what I used to be, some say it's tragic, (Ha ha)
                                   A      F#
Oh but that's a story better left alone,
       B7                              E
For I guess that I was born a rolling stone.

[Verse 4]
E                                              F#
So when I'm on the track and camped beside the highway,
       B7                               E
Just a-lazing back a-gazing at God's skyway,
                                         A      F#
Will my footsteps ever reach that golden throne,
          B7                           E
Will they ever welcome in this rolling stone
