A ballad about the lives of most singers.

I'm Just a Country Singer

I’m just a country singer
That’s the life I choose
I work the local bars at night
Sound better with some booze

Sing my heart out, that’s for sure
My melodies are fine
I think I’m good, may be great
I’m headed down the line

All my gigs are local bars
Ain’t makin’ it this way
Play guitar, sing some songs
To the next bar the next day

One-night stands, here and there
I set up, then I play
Crowds are thin, fan are great
Then I’m on my way

But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
‘Bout love and hearts and tears and trucks
I’d be the country king

But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
I’d be the country king
Ya, I’d be the country king

End each night at way past two
Bar’s the smell of stale beer
Pack my van, tie gear down
I’m headed out a here

I lay my weary head to rest
Songs flashing through my brain
Toss and turn, don’t sleep a wink
This life’s such a drain

Been playin’ this here guitar
Since I was a kid
Play some fiddle, banjo too
Couldn’t keep my talent hid

Never took a single lessen
Never had to try
Songs come screamin’ from my soul
Now you know why
But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
‘Bout love and hearts and tears and trucks
I’d be the country king

But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
I’d be the country king
Ya, I’d be the country king

I am a country singer
Play guitar in my band
I’m strumming out old tunes
At this one night stand

I tapped the spoons on my pants
That the way my sessions end
Blow harmonica through sore lips
Down the road and round the bend

Think I’ll go to Nashville
Down in Tennessee
I’ll write some songs for the stars
Make a big name there for me

But ‘till I head on way down south
Where the famous people play
I’ll do a gig in town tonight
Just to make some pay

Always sing the old songs
Never too much new
People like those classic hits
This I know is true

Tips are good, some would say
A few bucks for my rent
Been singin’ now for ‘bout ten years
No concert, no event

But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
‘Bout love and hearts and tears and trucks
I’d be the country king

But if I could write just one right
And make ‘em want to sing
He’d be the country king
Ya, I’d be the country king

I am a country singer
I think this is my fate
Music runs through my veins
My glory days await

‘Till I make it big I know
I’ll be singin’ here and there
String my guitar, strum our tunes
Next gig’s who knows where

I’m on the road again tonight
Be at you’re favorite place
Singin’ ‘till my blood runs dry
Livin’ this rat race

If you like what you hear
Next times that I sing
Tell your friends about me
Say he’s the country king

Tell your friends about me
Say he’s the country king
