Troubadour

Troubadour

I call myself a troubadour
And I play from town to town
I’m a regular one man band
With that classic country sound

I sell my tapes at all my shows
You get three for fifteen bucks
I used to be the next big thing
Now I’m just a never was

Chorus:
Twenty years ago they told me
That I was taking off
On the way to fame and fortune
I guess that I got lost
Everyone used to tell me
You’re going to be a star
Well I guess this star has faded
Into a country troubadour

I didn’t read the first contract
Some Nashville suit gave to me
Now they tell me all of my songs
Belong to some company

Bridge:
So I play these honky tonks,
County fairs and VFW halls
I sing lots of Hank Snow songs
And the Wabash Cannonball
I can sing lots of Hank Snow songs
And the Wabash Cannonball

It’s not the never making it
That weighs heavy on my soul
It’s too many what could have beens
And all these we’ll never knows

Chorus:
Twenty years ago they told me
That I was taking off
On the way to fame and fortune
I guess that I got lost
Everyone used to tell me
You’re going to be a star
Well I guess this star has faded
Into a country troubadour
