One Man Band

Album: Old Dominion (2019)
Charted: 20
  • Been flyin' solo for so long
    Nobody's singin' the harmony
    Up there just me and my shadow
    No bass, no guitar, no tambourine

    And I found you like a melody
    You were singin' in the same key as me
    We had 'em dancin' in the streets

    I don't wanna be a one man band
    I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
    Puttin' miles on a run-down van
    Baby, we can take our own show on the road
    I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
    We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
    Baby, take my hand
    I don't wanna be a one man band
    No

    I wanna run down your wild dreams
    And I wanna chase every high with you
    Count every rip in these old jeans
    We'll never learn how to sing the blues

    If I'm gonna be famous
    Girl, I wanna be famous with you
    We got our own little groove

    I don't wanna be a one man band
    I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
    Puttin' miles on a run-down van
    Baby, we can take our own show on the road
    I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
    We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
    Baby, take my hand
    'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band

    When the spotlight goes cold, and the curtains come down
    The chairs are all stacked, and there's no one around
    And nobody's payin', we'll still be playin'

    I don't wanna be a one man band
    I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
    Puttin' miles on a run-down van
    Baby, we can take our own show on the road
    I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
    We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
    Baby, take my hand
    'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band
    I don't wanna be a one man band Writer/s: Brad Francis Tursi, Josh Osborne, Matthew Thomas Ramsey, Trevor Joseph Rosen
