Jamie's thinking about leaving town for a while
He says he's got a few more tricks up his sleeves
He crossed his feet and counts to 10
Goes outside just to feel the wind
He said, "Looks like I'm heading east"

Well, you're no good and he's no better
And they both know they ain't getting any younger
So he says

Jamie's thinking about leaving town for a while
Says he's got some better plans for where he's bound
He says springtime's gonna come and get me out of the rain
Into the sun where I belong

He caught a train at the corner of 4th
Waiting for his 15 minutes of fame

He's gonna ride all night
Oh, baby, he's on a roll
Tell his mama not to worry
This kid is on his way

He took that train to Tennessee
To make his name, to take the piece and to sing
He bought a pack of cigarettes with one bag packed full of clothes
And stared straight into the eyes of the open road

The sun was shining when he pulled into town
He smiled and said, "I'm gonna make it
Make it on my own"

He's gonna ride all night
Oh, baby, he's on a roll
Tell his mama not to worry
This kid is on his way

When he picks up his guitar and you can tell by the way he walks
This kid, he's gonna be a star
He sends the money to his mama that pulls in under neon lights
And his making those records making people feel alive
