verse 1 
Am                                         Em 
If you're nobody's business or you're front page news 
G                                 Am                Am                 Em 
Folk Rock, Country or Delta Blues, Tell your truth however you choose 
G                                               Am 
And do it all for the sake of the song 
Am                                             Em                G 
Yeah, hitchhike, and bus ride and rental car, living rooms coffee house  
        Am 
and rundown bars 
Am                                 Em                                G 
Ten thousand people or alone under the stars, its all for the sake of the  
Am 
song 

tabchorus
F Am Am And there's a man who wrote "Your Cheatin' Heart", now he's lying Em through his tooth F Am G And he plays it on a stolen harp, that's soaked in hundred proof F Am Em And there's one who might be happy with a foreign badger's purse F Am G She's lost the crowd's attention at the forty second verse
tab
verse 2 Am Em And it's the travelling salesman, the girl next door G Am Am Em On the empty room to the bird on the corner, less is less until more is more G Am And it's all for the sake of the song F Am And there's the young man on the marquee, He's the son of some well known F Am G And his father bought the tour bus, so he could strike out on his own
tabchorus
F Am And there's the brooding contradiction, he's holding Van Gogh's ear F Am G And he's taped it to his guitar, in the hope someone will hear Am Em G It's back stage and Nudie Suits, and the next big thing will get 'em Am back to you roots
tab
verse 3 Am Em High tops, flannel and duct tape boots G Am And it's all for the sake of the song F Am And there's the mystic, there's the legend, and there's the best that's ever been F Am G And there's the voice of a generation who wants to pass this way again F Am And there's record deals and trained seals, and puppets on a string
tabchorus
F Am G And they're all just trying to figure out what makes the caged bird sing Am Em G Am It's lights, camera, on with the show, lifetime to get ready, now go cat go Am Em Where it all ends, nobody knows G Am But it's all for the sake of the song Am Em So if you're nobody's business or you're front page news G Am Am Em Folk Rock, Country or Delta Blues, Tell your truth however you choose G Am And do it all for the sake of the song
