Leaving out of New York, guitar in my hand

Gonna play all across this sweet, sweet homeland

Got stories of triumph, of heartache, and joy

It’s just who I am, a well seasoned,

grown up American boy

 

Can’t you see me, giving you my soul

I’m singing of everything I’ve ever done, ever seen,

And ever known

 

I’m going all the way to Georgia

And then maybe on to Tennessee

You’ll find me in the honky tonks

Where it’s at, is where I’ll be

I’m a teller of tall tales, yeah that’s just what they say

One more song for you, and I’ll be on my way

 

Can’t you see me, a grown up American boy

I’m singing of love, of lust, heartbreak, and joy

Can’t you see me, pouring out my soul?

I’m singing of everything I’ve ever done, ever seen,

And ever known

 

Guitar solo

 

I had me a perfect woman

Whom I loved with all my heart

She couldn’t bear the loneliness, and it tore us apart

She wrote me one last letter. She tried to ease me on back home

But music’s been my true love. It’s out here on the road.

 

Can you see me, a grown up American boy

I’m singing of love, of loss, heartbreak, and joy

Can you see me, pouring out my soul?

I’m singing of everything, I’ve ever done, ever seen

And ever known
