Walk in, sit down, open up your case
Tune up, and turn ‘round to show your face to the crowd
Sing a song in a genuine bluegrass voice
About your big Dixie Darling, the banjo that's always in tune.

Please sing a song for us, play your guitar
There isn't one of us care who you are
But if the sound is good, you won't go wrong
Please sing a song for us and we will sing along (so long).

Stand up, stretch out to take the hand
Of a girl called Rosie who thought your performance was cool
Tune in, turn on, stop dead in your tracks
At a voice softly singing about some fool on a hill.

Please sing a song for us, play your guitar
There isn't one of us care who you are
And if the sound is good, you won't go wrong
Please sing a song for us and we will sing along (so long).



Vocals: Gerry Rafferty
