Bobby played his guitar on the harder 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 in the road you're 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 sombody
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 he's number one on the stage and the radio
Still he can't believe how people come from miles around
When it seemed like only yesterday (when he would say)
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 the same old hungry eyes
He looked up at bobby and said
Repeat chorus twice
Oh yeah you can bet your hard earned dollar i will
