Lyrics

i have written many lines
lost forever in the back of time
and i listen to the tired radio
where i know my lines will never go

chorus:
and so i am a coverman
the less you know the less i show so
throw em’ back and watch the hack and call em’ if you can
oh i am a coverman
new and old they’ve all been told
i’ve got your evening in my hand
coverman



and i’ve been playing twenty years
people listen while they drink their beers
and i’d like to play the songs that are my own
but the owner says to sound familiar to their ears

(chorus)



out of high school i worked hard
layin concrete and spreadin tar
but when i hit those chords they rang into my soul
and i’ll never go back, no no

(chorus)



throat sore and my fingers raw
i’m the man on the mic in a smoky bar
owner tells me to play it on through
cause a coverman does what he gotta do
to get the bills in the mail pay the rent on time
yeah i’m the next best thing you will ever find
coverman cruel as can be
half way and as close as i’ll ever get to my dreams

the less you know the less i show so
throw em’ back and watch the hack and call em’ if you can
i am a coverman new and old i play the role yeah
i’ve got your evening in my hand
coverman
