  • Who knows
    I might wind up on the cover of a Rolling Stone
    With a pair of shades and a Grammy in my hand
    Just a blue jean boy in a great big world of yes
    I got my speech already in my head
    Then I'll say, then I'll say, yeah, I'll say

    Thank you uncle Dean for teaching me La Bamba on guitar
    Thank you girl from Broken Bow who shot an arrow through my heart
    Thank you mama for the roll and
    Thank you daddy for the rock
    Most of all, most of all
    Thanks to the bulls that bucked me off, woo

    Aw, hell what if
    I turn the rhymes up in my mind into a hit
    Then it played a hundred times a day on the radio
    Then it gave a little broken heart somewhere some hope
    And I'd jump up on the stage and the chorus would go
    Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da

    Thank you uncle Dean for teaching me La Bamba on guitar
    Thank you girl from Broken Bow who shot an arrow through my heart
    Thank you mama for the roll and
    Thank you daddy for the rock
    Most of all, most of all
    Thanks to the bulls that bucked me off

    Every knock down in the dirt
    Every no I ever heard
    Sure feel good to laugh when I look back and flip the bull the bird
    Every nail that ripped my shirt
    Every no I ever heard
    Sure feel good to laugh when I look back and flip the bull the bird
    Then I'll say, then I'll say, then I'll say

    Thank you uncle Dean for teaching me La Bamba on guitar
    Thank you girl from Broken Bow who shot an arrow through my heart
    Thank you Lynchburg for the nights I needed edges took away
    Thank you vinyl for the soundtrack to my life, it's sure been great
    Thank you mama for the roll and
    Thank you daddy for the rock
    Most of all, most of all
    Thanks to the bulls that bucked me off
    Yeah, most of all
    Thank you each and every bull that bucked me off

    And I say, and I say, and I say, and I say
