What happened to the kid in the Fbaseball Ccap? 
Well he?s trying to get home but I Gthink he lost the Cmap 
What happened to the kid with the Fbraces on his Cteeth? 
He had an autographed picture of MuGhammad CAli 
He?s just a Fwise-assed, buck-toothed, Bbnear-sighted fool F  
Always Cstaring at the girls in the Gswimming Cpool 
FThirty years later and he?s Bbstaring again F 
He?s Csearching for the place where the Gdreams beCgin 
Searching for the Amplace where the dream beDmgins 
 
Then he bought a bunch of records and he Fheard a man Csing 
He said if I could write a song I beGlieve I?d be a Cking 
But it took him twenty years unFtil he got the Cnerve 
He?s got boxes full of papers and Gpapers full of Cwords 
And the Fwords fly away like Bbswallows on the Fwind 
But they Cnever flew back to the Gnest aCgain 
Never took him to the Amplace where the dream beDmgins

Then he finally got married and he Fhad two little Cgirls 
But he didn?t see ?em much cause he Ghad to see the Cworld 
And the lie that he told ?em is I?m Flike most Cmen 
It?s always down the road that the Gdream beCgins 
And the Fgirls grew up to be Bbpretty and wise F 
They said ?you Ccould have seen the dream by Glooking in our Ceyes 
FYou were always living in the Bbworld of pretend F 
You kept Crunning away from Fwhere the dream Cbegins 
Running aAmway from where the dream beDmgins" C 
 
Now he?s living with a woman out on FBorderland CRoad 
But her love?s turned bitter, and her Geyes turned Ccold 
She said we came to the desert, let the Fsickness Cmend 
But Hell ain?t the place where the Gdreams beCgin 
FLook out boys I?m Bbgaining on you F 
He?s old CBlind Joe Death in his Galligator Cshoes 
He?s got a Fpocket full of pills and a Bbpint of sloe gin F 
He?s gonna Cshow you to the place where the Gdream beCgins 
Follow him Amdown where the dream beDmgins 
 
CFCGC 
 
At the end of the road there ain?t Fnothing but Cfear 
Just a big old room with a Gbig old Cmirror 
And the man in the mirror his Fhair?s turning Cgray 
And his hands begin to shake in a Gfunny kind of Cway  
He?s knows Feverything you bring for to Bbsave you soul F 
CEverything denied will conGdemn you to the Chole 
With his Fhand on his heart he Bbpicks up his pen F 
He goes Csearching for the place where the Gdream beCgins 
Looking for the Amplace where the dream beDmgins C 
 
What happened to the kid in the Fbaseball Ccap? 
He?s trying to get home but I Gthink he?s lost the Cmap.  
 
CFCGC
