Song Description

I wondered what it was that would make a famous performer suddenly stop and give up the business even though they were at the top of their career. I tried to imagine what their thoughts might be, and this is what I came up with.

Lyrics

Well you think I?ve got the answers - Hell, I don?t even understand your questions.
And you treat me like a guru even though I?m really open for suggestions.
And you put me on a pedestal, and you think I?m gonna make your lives alright.
But my only true solution, is not a revolution
But the company of Jack Daniels every night.

Been on the road forever, burnt my hands when I tried to catch the sun.
Poured my heart out to the roadies and I?ve played with every goddam star and bum.
But the roads keep getting longer and the crowds all seem to start to look the same.
My life, this ?Main Attraction?, gives no longer satisfaction
Hell, next year you might not even know my name.

Don?t play my songs on the radio. Don?t make my words the path you go.
Don?t you believe what the papers say. Tear down my posters and throw them away.
Don?t play my songs on the radio. Don?t make my words the path you go.
Don?t you believe what the papers say. Tear down my posters and throw them away

So I?ll pack away my guitar and I?ll put on my patent leather shoes
?Cos I?m tired of playing rock ?n? roll when my heart only wants to sing the blues.
Gonna move out to the country, buy a horse and maybe try to settle down
┬┤Cos the drugs and exaltations, can?t be paid by revelations
When the vacant eyes of nightmares come around.

Don?t play my songs on the radio. Don?t make my words the path you go.
Don?t you believe what the papers say. Tear down my posters and throw them away.
Don?t play my songs on the radio. Don?t make my words the path you go.
Don?t you believe what the papers say. Tear down my posters and throw them away
