Robert Earl Keen – (My Home Ain't In The) Hall Of Fame lyrics

My home ain't in the hall of fame
You can go there but you won't find my name
And my songs don't belong on top forty radio
I'll keep the old back forty for my home

Ain't no truck drivin' man
Baby, I hitch-hike all I can
I know the highway
It takes me where I need to go
I got a sunburned thumb
Yeah, I'm just a highway bum
Playin' my guitar and fall in love some more

(Repeat Chorus)

Some friends I left behind
You know some have left me cryin'
And some have stayed right up there by my side
It's good to have a home
Sometimes it's good to be alone
You know it sure feels good just to
Keep your good friends high

(Repeat Chorus)
