Lyrics

5) Starvin’ For a Song - m.litton

I’ve got songs of heartache, hard times ‘n bitterness
Of a good woman’s love ‘n a child’s sweet tenderness
But through each door I’ve entered they’ve turned me away
Now I’m starvin’ for a song the radio will play

You need a hook ‘n a bridge ‘n a pop melody
Some lines about whiskey and women who cheat
Cause clean livin’ ‘n family aren’t sellin’ these days
And you’ll starve for a song the radio will play

Chorus: And I’m starvin’ for a song the radio will play
In my heart don’t I know things may never change
So won’t heaven send ol’ Hank to help me sing the blues away
Cause I’m starvin’ for a song the radio will play

Bridge: I’ve got two little children ‘n a darlin’ sweet wife
Through many a lean winter their needs I’ve denied
Now the road seems so hard ‘n the journey so long
But they’ve stayed for the sake of my songs

The man said, “Son, your only legacy will be
The words you’ve written on the pages you leave
Most likely they’ll wither once you’re in your grave
You’ll die starvin’ for a song the radio will play
(chorus)
