Recently I've been thinkin about what I am and where my priorities lie
Gettin it together on some future plan, decidin what I need to get by
I tried workin and schoolin but there just not my plan, oh no
Can't ya see I'll always be a music man 

Well I could be pickin bluegrass or singin the blues 
It doesn't really matter to me
As long as I'm playin the music I just can't lose
And noones gonna tell me differently
'Cause all I really care about is sittin right here in my hands
Oh yeah
Can't ya see I'll always be a music man 

Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
My daddy tells her I'm just goin through a phase
But that's just what he always says
I hear what they're sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
Can't ya see I'll always be a music man
Yeah 

Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
My daddy tells her that I'm goin through a phase 
But that's just what he always says
I hear what they're sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
Can't ya see I'll always be a music man 

Well I've told you my story now here's what I've found
To be happy you need only be real
So don't let anyone try to turn your head around 
Just remember you are what you feel
You see all of my life people been tryin to tell me what I am, oh yeah
Can't ya see I'll always be a music man, oh yeah
