Alan Jackson – Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow lyrics

Daddy won a radio

Tuned it to a country show

I was rocking in the cradle to the crying of a steel guitar

Mama used to sing to me

She taught me that sweet harmony

Now she worries ’cause she never thought

I’d ever really take it this far

Singing in the bars and

Chasin’ the neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

‘Cause all I’ve ever wanted

Is to pick this guitar and sing

Just trying to be somebody

Just wanna be heard and seen

Chasin’ that neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

An atlas and a coffee cup

Five pickers in an old Dodge truck

Heading down to Houston for a show on Saturday night

This overhead is killing me

Half the time I sing for free

But when the crowd’s into it

Lord it makes this thing I’m doing seem right

Standing in the spotlight

Chasin’ the neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

‘Cause all I’ve ever wanted

Is to pick this guitar and sing

Just trying to be somebody

Just wanna be heard and seen

Chasin’ that neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

Daddy’s got a radio

He won it thirty years ago

He said ‘Son I just now we’re gonna hear you singing on it someday’ I

Made it up to Music Row Lordy don’t the wheels turn slow But I wouldn’t

Trade a minute I wouldn’t have it any other way Just show me to the

Stage

I’m chasin’ the neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

‘Cause all I’ve ever wanted

Is to pick this guitar and sing

Just trying to be somebody

Just wanna be heard and seen

Chasin’ that neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream

I’m chasin’ the neon rainbow

Livin’ that honky tonk dream
