Self Portrait

Headed out west to start a new life
Got forty dollars my watch and my knife
Headed on down that road
I'm a travelin’ boy who’s got soul
Never said that I could sing the blues
Listen to me honey,
I got em blue suede shoes

Love to listen to that rock and roll
Come on everybody
I’ll teach you how it goes
Listen to me once, and listen to me twice
We can boogie on down all through the night

Love to listen to that country honk
‘Cause em honkey tonk women wrote this song
I come from the land that's deep in the roots
From the Mississippi River
On down to your boots
Love em good times and I let 'em roll
Rollin on down and not rollin slow
Hoppin’ on a jet plane we’re goin to France
Floatin’ away in a dream like stance
I know how to smile and I do it best
When I’m playin good music my soul’s at rest

Blue Suede Shoes...
