playCoverman

from Sessions (2003) BUY

i have written many lines lost forever in the back of time and i listen to the tired radio where i know my lines will never go

chorus and so i am a coverman the less you know the less i show so throw em’ back and watch the hack and call em’ if you can oh i am a coverman new and old they’ve all been told i’ve got your evening in my hand….. coverman

and i’ve been playing twenty years people listen while they drink their beers and i’d like to play the songs that are my own but the owner says to sound familiar to their ears

chorus

out of high school i worked hard laying concrete and spreading tar but when i hit those chords they rang into my soul and i’ll never go back…...no, no

chorus

throat soar and my fingers raw i’m the man on the mic in a smoky bar owner tells me to play it on through cause a coverman does what he gotta do to get the bills in the mail pay the rent on time yeah i’m the next best thing you will ever find coverman cruel as can be half way and as close as i’ll ever get to my dreams

chorus

the less you know the less i show so throw em’ back and watch the hack and call em’ if you can i am a coverman new and old i play the role yeah i’ve got your evening in my hand coverman
