The 1st Mistake I Made

 I ain't got no claim to nothing.
 I don't mess with anyone.
 I walk my way living in a masquerade.
 And one day I looked behind me at all the things I've done.
 That's the 1st mistake I ever made.
 I was born to a lonely women in a town called Buffalo.
 Never knew the man who never stayed.
 With my 12-string on my back
 I discovered every track.
 That's the 1st mistake I ever made.
 With a million hearts I've broken.
 I never kept the score.
 Memories of good love hate to stay.
 But I still remember someone who loved me so much more.
 That's the 1st mistake I ever made.
 So, when nothing's worth the living and in the night I look above.
 Prayed, about a million times I prayed.
 I know my story ended when I lost my only love.
 That's the 1st mistake I ever made.
 I was born to a lonely women in a town called Buffalo.
 Never knew the man who never stayed.
 With my 12-string on my back
 I discovered every track.
 That's the 1st mistake I ever made.
