My Buddy Vince

My buddy Vince Gill wants me
It says so on the page
I read that Vince Gill wants me
To play with him on stage
I’ll get a few fat C Notes
And a Re-cording contract
I’ll play his song and make it mine
Singing on his album tracks

Chorus:
I know I’m gonna win it
I feel it in my bones
I know I’m gonna win it
I’m taking it down home
Don’t need to get too famous
For a contract to be signed
Vince Gill’s gonna pick me
And that Grand Ol’ Opry’s mine

I went to the Grand Ol’ Opry
Way back in ninety-three
Some manager said at dinner
Vince’ll sing a song for me
Well, I’ll find out his birthday
And I’ll sing him a fine ol’ song
I’ll sing him happy birthday
And then it won’t be long…cuz

Chorus:
I know I’m gonna win it
I feel it in my bones
I know I’m gonna win it
I’m taking it down home
Don’t need to get too famous
For a contract to be signed
Vince Gill’s gonna pick me
And that Grand Ol’ Opry’s mine

I think he’s sitting out there
As I play this home-town gig
Vince is waiting for my set to end
It’s the start of something big
Vince Gill’s gonna choose me
To sing and play guitar
He’ll ask me where the heck I’ve been
Soon I’m a Country Star

Chorus:
I know I’m gonna win it
I feel it in my bones
I know I’m gonna win it
I’m taking it down home
Don’t need to get too famous
For a contract to be signed
Vince Gill’s gonna pick me
And that Grand Ol’ Opry’s mine

Gonna buy myself a new house
In Nashville’s old downtown
I’ll play that Bluebird Cafe
And then I’ll make my rounds
Grand Ol’ Opry will book me
and I’ll get in the Hall of Fame
Vince Gill’s sipping whisky
Playing my songs again

Chorus:
I know I’m gonna win it
I feel it in my bones
I know I’m gonna win it
I’m taking it down home
Don’t need to get too famous
For a contract to be signed
Vince Gill’s gonna pick me
And that Grand Ol’ Opry’s mine (x2)
