Long about ten years old
Rock and roll stole my soul
My mama bought me an old guitar
Gonna make myself a rock star
Never cared too much for school
Too much direction, too many rules
Teacher said "what you doin' son?
That damned guitar is worse than a gun."

Uh huh
I just said Uh huh

Went around the block a time or two
Didn't have a dime when I was through
Got lots of critical acclaim
My critical mistake was I did not play the game
Called home and said
"I got a job, so I didn't have to steal or rob"
My mama said you little brat
Don't cut your hair, we raised you better than that."

Uh huh
She just said Uh huh

I turned left when I should've turned right
Or so I tell myself in the middle of the night
It's okay to fall on your face
As long as I remember how I came to this place

Years go by and I realize
I'm not so stupid and I'm not that wise
If I knew then what I know now
I'd do it all over but that ain't how

Uh huh
I just said Uh huh
