* : 'pause'

transcribed by Pinter Denes 

Lyrics:

   I was nothin' but a city boy
   My trumpet was my only toy
   I've been blowin' my horn
   Since I knew I was born
   But there ain't nobody wants to know

   I've been sleepin' on the sidewalk
   Rollin' down the road
   I may get hungry
   But I sure don't want to go home

   So round the corner comes a limousine
   And the biggest grin I ever seen
   Here sonny won't you sign
   Right along the dotted line
   What you sayin' are you playin'
   Sure you don't mean me?

   I've been sleepin' on the sidewalk
   Rollin' down the road
   I may get hungry
   But I sure don't want to go home

   (Now I tell you what happened...)

   They took me to a room without a table
   They said 'blow your trumpet into here'
   I played around as well as I was able
   And soon we had the record of the year

   I was a legend all through the land
   I was blowin' to a million fans
   Nothin' was a missin'
   All the people want to listen
   You'd have thought I was a happy man

   And I was sleepin' like a princess
   Never touch the road
   I don't get hungry
   And I sure don't want to go home

 (Have to have some fun...)

   Now they tell me that I ain't so fashionable
   An' I owe the man a million bucks a year
   So I told 'em where to stick the fancy label
   It's just me and the road from here
   I'm back to playin' and layin'
   I'm back on the game

   I'm sleepin' on the sidewalk
   Rollin' down the road
   I sure get hungry and
   I sure do wanna go home

   (Yeah)
