Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be

I need somebody to be my baby
Someone to tell my troubles to
I've got no time to ever find her
'Cause I'm just passing through

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I'll always be just a rolling stone

If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone

I get no rest when I'm feelin' weary
I gotta pack my bags and go
I gotta be somewhere tomorrow
To smile and do my show

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I'll always be just a rolling stone

If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone

Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be
How lonesome I can be
