Like a resstless leaf,
In the autumn breeze, once I was a tumbleweed,
Like a rolling stone cold all alone,
Living for the day my dream would come,
Never cared for school, or any golden rules,
Papa used to all ways say I was a useless fool,
So I left my home to show him they was wrong,
And headed out on the road singing my song,
Then one sunny day, the man he looked my way,
And everything I dreamed of it was real,
Money, girls and cars, and big long cigars
And I caught the first plane home so papa could see…

When I went home to show him they was wrong,
All that I found was two tombstones,
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong,
Woa it’s such a sad song
First I got lost then I got found,
But the ones that I love were in the ground,
Papa I only wish you could see me now,
Take a listen papa…
Ooh I learned how to play my guitar,
Gunna be a superstar

*Instrumental*

…Play one for mama now

*Instrumental*

(Female backups)
First I got lost, then I got found,
The ones that I loved were in the ground,
Won’t you tell me please was I right or wrong?

If there is any way, you can hear what I say,
Papa I never meant to do ya no wrong,
All the money, girls, and cars, and all the world’s big long cigars,
Papa I just want you to know they couldn’t take your place…

When I went home to show them they was wrong,
All that I found was a two tombstones,
Sombody tell me please was I right or wrong,
Lord it’s such a sad song
First I got lost,
Then I got found,
The ones that I loved were in the ground,
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong,
