one day….

Playing songs to empty chairs
Taking bows when no ones there
We’re on the road to famous town
But, no one really cares

House parties, and the legions
Around town and the region
We’re on the road to famous town
But, no one knows we’re there

One day we’ll make it to the top of the mountain
They’ll know our name and all will know our songs
It takes a while but we all have the vision
To be the best, so we will sing our songs
Our fans all scream for us to sing them for ’em
We’ll reach our hall of fame one day
We’ll play Ryman Auditorium
And when we do ….just listen to us play

Years of clubs and small time tours
Opening for kids half our age
We’ve walked a million miles
Just walking out on stage

A chance comes down the turnpike
Get recorded at a show
The Nashville people hear it
We’re on the radio

Requests to sing our single
Come so fast, we take them all
We’re no longer the shows opener
We’re the top bill at the hall

More music and more albums
Larger tours and tv shows
We don’t sing to empty bars no more
We’re the name everyone knows

One day we’ll make it to the top of the mountain
They’ll know our name and all will know our songs
It takes a while but we all have the vision
To be the best, so we will sing our songs
Our fans all scream for us to sing them for ’em
We’ll reach our hall of fame one day
We’ll play Ryman Auditorium
And when we do ….just listen to us play

It’s been twenty years in coming
We’re an overnight success
We’ve climbed on up the mountain
You know where we go next…

An invitation to the Ryman
The Country Music Hall of Fame
A show where greats are thought of
And everybody knows your name

But, now…we still are playing
To our fans in bars, saloons
But, one day we will be famous
The Ryman…we’ll be there soon
