MicrophoneThought I was somebody

Intro Thought I was somebody In my chauffeured driven car Up there on that big stage Playing lead guitar She was a lady from the jet set Guess I should have known Just loved me for my money And everything I owned chorus Knew she could be trouble But everybody knows When love is blind you cannot see Thorns on a scented rose Verse In a land of milk and honey You can blow it all away Gambling and a drinking She was with me night and day A taker not a giver And with nothing more to spend She left me for another Who I thought was my best friend chorus The one who said she’s cheating Guess I should have known Like me he never saw Those thorns on a scented rose verse But now it’s all behind me Regrets I’ve never had Doing things I want to do Just being a guitar man With a pocketful of nothing My boots let water in Singing songs I walk along Back on the road again chorus A minstrel and a roamer My name nobody knows No drinking and no gambling Or thorns on a scented rose
