JOHNNY WANTS TO BE A STAR (Jerry Reed Hubbard) Jerry Reed - 1969 Now every day you'd see him out on the front porch With a guitar across his lap He'd be a sittin' there diggin' that transistor radio Pickin' all them hit songs out While the other kids would sit around and whittle on sticks Little Johnny got his guitar down and he'd pick 'Cause that's the way that Johnny used to get his kicks Tryin' to figure out some new kinda licks Little Johnny wants to be a star Little Johnny wants to be a star All he wants to do is sing a little song And play music on a fine guitar You hear him goin' mmhhmm-hmm-hmm-mmhhmm-hmm-hmm Leap in there Johnny (Instrumental Break) Now every time a show would come to town You'd find Johnny on a front row seat He'd be a-sittin' there starin' all misty eyed Never missin' one single beat Now when the show was over he would go straight home Get his guitar down and he would play it till dawn A-dreamin' of a time when he'd be grown And someday he'd have a show of his own Little Johnny wants to be a star Little Johnny wants to be a star All he wants to do is sing a little song And make music on a fine guitar You hear him goin' mmhhmm-hmm-hmm-mmhhmm-hmm-hmm (Instrumental Break) One day he picked up his songs and his guitar He kissed his little mama goodbye He drove to New York City to see a record producer Askin' him to give him a try And so they took him to the studio, they turned him loose And when he started singin' and a-playin' the blues He saw them diggin' inside that he surely could move Yessir, everybody knew the truth Mmmm, little Johnny's gonna be a star Little Johnny's gonna be a star At last he's singin' a big hit song And makin' music on a fine guitar They heard him goin' mmhhmm-hmm-hmm-mmhhmm-hmm-hmm Show 'em, John (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2018)
