The Music, Man

I stay out late, live at the bars
Surround myself with pretty people and guitars
I drink too much, gone too long
And there’s a gypsy soul inside of me so strong
I’m the music, man
Oh, the music, man

I kiss the boys, play their games
And sing to them as if I know their names
I break some hearts, it’s sad but true
But sometimes there’s no helping what I do
I’m the music, man
Oh, the music, man

I’m the music, man, straight from Tennessee
Doing all I can to keep you listening to me
Sharing all the stories, all the pain, and the delight
Every night, every night
I’m the music, man

I keep the beat, make you dance
I spin you ’round the room with such romance
And you take me home, take me to bed
And when the morning comes I’m in your head
I’m the music, man
Oh, the music, man
I’m the music, man
The music, man
