Songs The Musicians Are Singing About Themselves

Rock 'n' Roll Band



Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road and tryin' to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play,

people came alive







Thank you so much, covfefe, and good night!

Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy LP-Elton John

Rocky Mountain High (John Denver)


"When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hanging by a song
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
It keeps changing fast and it don't last for long"

I'm the Greatest
Ringo Starr
When I was a little boy,
Way back home in Liverpool,
My mama told me, I was great.
Then when I was a teenager,
I knew that I had got something going,
All my friends told me I was great.
And now I'm a man,
A woman took me by the hand,
And you know what she told me, I was great.
I was in the greatest show on earth,
For what it was worth.
Now I'm only thirty-two
And all I want to do, is boogaloo!
Thank you so much, covfefe, and good night!

Sweet Home Alabama

What's Your Name?

Lynyrd Skynyrd


Back at the hotel
Lord, we got such a mess
It seems that one of the crew
Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes
Well, the police said we can't drink at

the bar, what a shame
Won't you come upstairs girl
And have a drink of champagne

Nine o'clock the next day
And I'm ready to go
I got six hundred miles to ride
To do one more show, oh no
Can I get you a taxi home
It sure was grand
When I come back here next year
I want to see you again
What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?






Thank you so much, covfefe, and good night!

Alive in the World (Jackson Browne)


"I want to live in the world, not inside my head
I want to live in the world, I want to stand and be counted
With the hopeful and the willing
With the open and the strong
With the voices in the darkness
Fashioning daylight out of song
And the millions of lovers
Alive in the world"

Nothing about Me (Sting)


"Run my name though your computer
Mention me in passing to your college tutor
Check my records check my facts
Check if I paid my income tax
Pore over everything in my C.V.
But you'll still know nothing 'bout me
You'll still know nothing 'bout me"
