everybody wants to be me lyrics – john rich

well everybody sees me being a blinin’ country rok star
drivin’ downtown poundin’ honky tonk sounds in my bandit car
they didn’t know me back then ’92, with my p*wn-shop guitar
and the holes in my boots
didn’t see what i had to go through
all the beatin’s i took, just a payin’ my dues, and now

everybody wants to be me
but the don’t want to bruise and they don’t want to bleed
want to spend all the money, hung up all the honeys
and try to get their fortune for free
don’t want to do what it takes to be what they want to be
no but everybody wants, everybody want to be me

well there’s a camera ub ny face nearly everyday
and i just got to grin
they take my country-boy views make it big city news
and i just take it on the chin
’cause when you’re playin’ at the top of your game
when the phone’s always ringin’ and they’re droppin’ names
but the second that you start to fall
hey n*body cares and n*body calls, but

everybody wants to be me
but the don’t want to bruise and they don’t want to bleed
want to spend all the money, hung up all the honeys
and try to get their fortune for free
don’t want to do what it takes to be what they want to be
no but everybody wants, everybody want to be me

well everybody wants to be me
but they don’t want to bruise and they don’t want to bleed
want to spend all the money, hug up all the honeys
try to get their fortune for free

everybody wants to be me
but the don’t want to bruise and they don’t want to bleed
want to spend all the money, hung up all the honeys
and try to get their fortune for free
don’t want to do what it takes to be what they want to be
no but everybody wants, everybody want to be me

everybody wants
i said everybody wants, everybody wants to be me
yeah they want to be me
yes they do
everybody wants to be me
