Daddy won a radio, tuned it to a country show I was rockin' in the cradle to the cryin' of a steel guitar Mama used to sing to me, she taught me that sweet harmony Now she worries 'cause she never thought I'd ever really take it this far
Singin' in the bars and
[Chorus] Chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream 'Cause all I've ever wanted, is to pick this guitar and sing Just tryin' to be somebody, just wanna be heard and seen Chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream
An atlas and a coffee cup, five pickers in an old Dodge truck Headin' down to Houston for a show on Saturday night This overhead is killin' me, half the time I sing for free But when the crowd's into it Lord it makes this thing I'm doing seem right
Standin' in the spotlight
Daddy's got a radio, he won it thirty years ago He said "Son I just know we're gonna hear you singin' on it someday" I made it up to Music Row, but Lordy don't the wheels turn slow Still I wouldn't take a minute and I wouldn't have it any other way
Just show me to the stage
I'm chasin' that neon rainbow, livin' that honky tonk dream.
