Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've been walkin' these streets of Nashville
Since I was just a kid
Either in these boots or in my dreams
I spent all I had to buy this Martin
And I've been richer ever since I did
Even though I can't afford to change the strings
I've heard a lot of "nos" and "no thank yous"
Sometimes I wonder why I'm even here
But I still could be an overnight sensation
It would only take one sympathetic ear
Verse 2
(chorus)
If Merle would sing my song, I could go back home
And tell everyone I know that dreams come true
I'd be someone in their eyes, a face that they'd all recognize
I could prove to them and me I wasn't wrong
If Merle would sing my song
Verse 3
I'll bet I've played this guitar
In every honkytonk and bar
But as of yet they haven't noticed me
But this heart and soul of mine
Is filled with memories, chords, and rhymes
And I know that I'm the future they can't see
I could maybe make a million dollars chokin' in a tie
But then I'd have to live with my regret
I know God didn't give me all these dreams to watch 'em die
I'll make it big, it just hasn't happenned yet
Verse 4
(repeat chorus)
Verse 5
(tag)
I've been walkin' these streets of Nasvhille
Since I was just a kid
Either in these boots or in my dreams
Verse 6
(Merle Haggard singing)
He's been walkin' these streets of Nashville
Since he was just a kid
Either in these boots or in his dreams
