I Always Wanted to Sing

I Always Wanted To Sing



Everyone has a dream, I always wanted to sing.
I’d dream of Nashville and all the stars, every night I’d practice my guitar.

Yes, I always wanted to sing, always wanted to sing, back when I was young
I’d enter every contest when they’d come.

I tried the radio, thought I put on a good show, they said thanks a lot son
Hate to see you run, here’s some potato chips, now go have some fun.

Yes, I always wanted to sing, always wanted to sing, back when I was young
I’d enter every contest when they’d come.

I used to envy old Hank, Elvis and Waylon too, I’d listen to DelRio
That Texas star, just to know the music and who they are.

Yes, I always wanted to sing, always wanted to sing, now when I’m up there
I don’t have a care, I think everyone should sing.
