lyrics

I was the next big thing til they heard me sing. I coulda been a household name.
But all I got was a fool's jackpot. I played that lottery folks call fame.

I was the next big star til they saw me play my guitar. I coulda been the one who changed the game.
But all I got was a fool's jackpot. I played that lottery folks call fame

I was nashville bent, if I had talent.
I coulda made that opry stage
But all I got/ was a fool's jackpot. I played that lottery folks call fame

I was bound for bright lights but my teeth weren't white. I coulda heard that critical acclaim .
But all I got was a fool's jackpot. I played that lottery folks call fame.

Woulda wrote with the best if I'd been more depressed. I coulda been the next Mark Twain.
But all I got was a fool's jackpot. I played that lottery folks call fame.

Well the whole truth is I never liked show biz, that wasn't my intention anyway. But what I got was an afterthought, I just like to play.
