  • Lyrics:   Folksinger Step up to the microphone Check, 1-2, 1-2 There's a sea of faces, saying "We've never even heard of you" Half traveling salesman, half whore After 57 cities nothing matters anymore Driving all night through rain and snow Sound check, kill time, 40 minute show Hard-on for the waitress, the locals wanna kill ya All my trials, Lord, I'm a Folksinger Up here alone with my beat up guitar Staring down at my shoes, the anti-star Just a working class nothin' from a shit hole town Every circus needs a clown Am I on the way up or on the way down Can I go home now Here's to the guy in the front row who gave me the finger I should let it roll off me but it lingers Whatever happened to Debra Winger I hope she didn't marry a Folksinger I live for the nights when magic takes over the room And there's no longer a wall between me and you I'm no longer just a carnival barker, half Colonel Parker Getting by on scratch, man, pass the hat Does it have to cost me the shirt off my back To be a Folksinger Hootenanny tonight!
