#1
He left home
at the age of 18
threw his beat up suitcase
in his old chevrolete
took the dirt road
to the old highway
swears hes gonna make it someday

he found an old six string
when his daddy ran away
learned a few chords
taught himself to sing
said hes gonna make it someday
swore hes gonna make it someday

Well boy
winters coming soon
and boy
you aint got a dime to lose
will that guitar keep you warm
in those Chicago storms

will you hide in the blues clubs
hide in the streets
you cant hide in from the cold
with no shoes on your feet
how you gonna live boy
how you gonna eat
says hes gonna make it someday

well its been a few years
hes just turned 23
he aint got much
but at least he can eat
hes got a new band
swears they're on their way
says they're gonna make it someday

well boy
you were born to sing the blues
and boy
you got six strings and the truth
I swear your gonna make it someday
Lord I pray your gonna make it someday
