He took that long ride up to Nashville. Said it was something he had to do.
His daddy said he would never make it. Still he had to give it one more try before his life was through
He tried so many years ago. But life always seemed to get in the way.
In his heart he's not sure like before. He could still here the words of his mother echoing when she'd say
He's a music man. Born with a song in his heart and a guitar in his hand.
Going through life doing the best he can He's a music man
He's have to give up everything he loved to follow his dream
Everyone would turn their back on him Atleast that's the way it seemed
But still he would never give up and nothing would ever stand in his way
In his heart he knew it would be tough but he knew it would all be worth it someday cause
Somewhere on a stage tonight
He plays an old familliar song under that bright spotlight
And he sings
I'm a music man born with a song in my heart and this guitar in my hand
Now I'm on the road with this traveling band I'm a music man
He's a music man
God bless the music man
