Listen to song while you read lyrics!

You woke up this morning, got yourself a gun
Mama always said you’d be the chosen one
She said, “You’re one in a million, you’ve got to burn to shine
But you were born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes”

You woke up this morning, all the love has gone
Your papa never told you about right and wrong
But you’re looking good, baby, I believe you’re feeling fine
(Shame about it)
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

You woke up this morning, the world turned upside down
Thing’s ain’t been the same since the blues walked into town
But you’re one in a million, you’ve got that shotgun shine
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

When you woke up this morning everything you had was gone
By half past ten your head was going ding-dong
Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes
Like a voice telling you there was something you should know

Last night you were flying but today you’re so low
Ain’t it times like these that make you wonder if you’ll ever know
The meaning of things as they appear to the others
Wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers

Don’t you wish you didn’t function, wish you didn’t think
Beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink
Well, you do so make up your mind to go on
‘Cos when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone

When you woke up this morning, when you woke up this morning
When you woke up this morning, mama said you’d be the chosen one
When you woke up this morning, when you woke up this morning
When you woke up this morning, you got yourself a gun
