When I was young I left my home
And went away, to Vegas
With my guitar and my dreams,
I had to try to play and sing, in Vegas
But my momma told me I was wrong,
And she begged me to stay at home
But my will was strong and
I had to make it big, in Vegas

They'll put my name up in lights where I play,
And the lines out in front will be long,
I'll get a standing ovation from the people,
When I start to sing my song,
When I turn 'em on in Vegas

Well I've played every Honky tonk
And smokey bar, in Vegas
And I guess I don't have
What it takes, for Las Vegas
But my dreams still linger on,
Oh, my faith is almost gone,
But my will is strong and
I've gotta make it big, in Vegas


[Repeat: x3]
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la, big in Vegas.
