when they ask me for my autograph
i catch you in the corner of my eye
and i know that smile upon your face
means we made it
you and i.
from the hard life on the south side
to the spotlight here on the stage.
no tellin’ where i’d be
singin’ me diff’rent song.
breakin’ rocks for ten or twenty years
but you wouldn’t let me go wrong.
standin’ by me
’cause you love me
this one’s for you.
watch me play
hear me sing
la la la la la la la.
i’ll play and sing for you
la la la la
hear the applause.
