I'm Gonna Be Somebody
by Travis Tritt



Bobby played his guitar on the hard side of town
Where it's hard for a poor boy to find the money
He had dedication, he had the heart and soul
Somehow knew he was born to play

People said get a real job support your family
'Cause there's no future on the road your takin'
He never said a word, the dreamer just kept on
Late at night you could hear him sing, he said

I'm gonna be somebody
One of these days I'm gonna break these chains
I'm gonna be somebody, someday
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will

The road was a struggle, it took him ten years to the top
But now hes number one on the stage and radio
Still he cant believe how people come from miles around
When it seemed like only yesterday,he said

I'm gonna be somebody
One of these days I'm gonna break these chains
I'm gonna be somebody, someday
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will, yeah, yeah, yeah

Bobby played his hometown, one full moon August night
When he heard a voice in the front row singin'
It was a Sandy-haired rebel boy with same old hungry eyes
Looked up at Bobby and said

I'm gonna be somebody
One of these days I'm gonna break these chains
And I'm gonna be somebody, someday
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will, you know I will

I'm gonna be somebody
One of these days I'm gonna break these chains
And I'm gonna be somebody, someday
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will, oh yeah
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will
