It's getting late in the evening
and the crowd is getting thin
but your friends are here and
they're drinking a beer
so you've got to keep on playing

well they say that you can wipe away
the sorrows of today
with your eyes of blue and
a song or two to play
when it's time to close it down
well the crowd has got it all wrong
they say
ooh, Jackie play us one more song

he headed out to nashville
with his guitar in his hand
he wants to play in a bar
he's gonna be a big star
way down in opryland

well they say that you can....

Jackie spends his life
playing bars along the street
and when he does
oh, the music sounds so sweet

never hit the big time
but he held on to the dream
of playing on the big stage
and watching the girls scream

well, they say that you can...
