Daddy won a radio and tuned it to a country show 
I was rockin' in the cradle to the cryin' of a steel guitar 
Mama used to sing to me, she taught me that sweet harmony 
Now she worries 'cause she never thought I'd ever really take it this far 

Singin' in the bars and 
Chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream 
'Cause all I've ever wanted, is to pick this guitar and sing 
Just tryin' to be somebody, just wanna be heard and seen 
I'm chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream 

An atlas and a coffee cup, five pickers in an old Dodge truck 
Headin' down to Houston for a show on Saturday night 
This overhead is killin' me, half the time I sing for free 
But when the crowd's into it Lord it makes this thing I'm doing seem right 

Standin' in the spotlight 
Chasin' that neon rainbow, I'm livin' that honky tonk dream 
'Cause all I've ever wanted, is to pick this guitar and sing 
Just tryin' to be somebody, just wanna be heard and seen 
I'm chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream 

Daddy's got a radio, he won it thirty years ago 
He said "Son I just know we're gonna hear you singin' on it someday" 
I made it up to Music Row, but Lordy don't the wheels turn slow 
Still I wouldn't take a minute and I wouldn't have it any other way 

Just show me to the stage 

I'm chasin' that neon rainbow, i'm livin' that honky tonk dream 
'Cause all I've ever wanted, is to pick this guitar and sing 
Just tryin' to be somebody, just wanna be heard and seen 
Chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream 

I'm chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream
