It's been said to me over and over
One day you're gonna make a million dollars but I can't see
How something like that could ever happen for me

People they say one day you're gonna be a big big star
One day the whole wide world is gonna know who you are
I tell 'em that's for other people not for me
I'll be happy just getting to sing and play my guitar
But I thank you very much for all of your support

I was born to a great big family
Down south in Vicksburg, Mississippi
When I was young we all moved to Texas
You know the state that they say don't mess with
My oldest brother who I so admired
And my dad taught me how to play guitar
My mom who I love more than there are grains of sand on the seashore

She taught me how to be tough and never give up
For that lesson I thank her very much
She and dad they were always there for me
And the few friends I have they always build up my confidence
By telling me that they think my music is excellent
If I ever do make it big I never will forget them

It's been said to me over and over
One day you're gonna make a million dollars but I can't see
How something like that could ever happen for me

People they say one day you're gonna be a big big star
One day the whole wide world is gonna know who you are
I tell 'em that's for other people not for me
I'll be happy just getting to sing and play my guitar
But I thank you very much for all of your support
Yeah, I thank you very much for all of your support
I thank you very much for all of your support
