guys like me lyrics – gary allan

(kostas/treant summar)

well, there’s no more smokey bars in california,
there ain’t no wildlife left in tennessee,
but i keep on living every song i’m singing,
and their trying to put an end to guys like me.

all that’s left in bakersfield is a jukebox,
and it’s haunted by old songs and memories,
it’s getting hard to find a place to play my guitar,
and their trying to put an end to guys like me.

well, i’d like to find a place where love surrounds me,
some town where they don’t mind me hanging around,
a place where life don’t move to fast,
and what you are is not a thing of the past.

where you can land your dreams on solid ground,
well, i’m sitting on a barstool down on broadway,
waiting for my turn to sing my dreams,
i’m just a california boy with my old guitar,
and their trying to put and end to guys like me.

well, i’d like to find a place where love surrounds me,
some town where they don’t mind me hanging around,
a place where life don’t move to fast,
and what you are is not a thing of the past.

where you can land your dreams on solid ground,
well, i’m sitting on a barstool down on broadway,
waiting for my turn to sing my dreams,
i’m just a california boy with my old guitar,
and their trying to put and end to guys like me.

yeah, their trying to put an end to guys like me…
