lyrics

I don't want to sing no song about the gate across the water
I don't want to tell you what I've heard
I don't listen to the promises that the so-and-so's keep making
On stage on screen and billboard along the road

I just want to sit around and play my music
I don't want to do no harm to you or me

I don't mind you knowing that I still sing to my mama
Every time I think she needs a smile
It don't cost me anything just to tell her that I love her
Old songs bring us closer anyhow

My daddy he never said it but I know just what he was thinking
Every time I'd sit there and watch him play
He'd holler 'watch my fingers, son' and then he'd play it louder
God bless him he'll be proud of me some day

We may never make it if that's what the people call it
But that don't help or hurt the songs we play
I can see you smiling and I'm smiling right back at you
I couldn't sing it any other way

I just want to sit around and play my music
I don't want to do no harm to you or me
