Footlights Lyrics

I live the kinda life - most men only dream of
I make my livin' writin' songs - and singin' them
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over
So I hide my age and make the stage and try to kick the footlights out again

I throw my old guitar - across the stage and then my bassman takes the ball
And the crowd goes nearly wild - to see my guitar nearly fall
After twenty years of pickin' - we're still alive and kickin' down the wall
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out and walk away without - a curtain call

Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again - And try to hide the mood I'm really in
And put on our old Instamatic grin - Tonight we'll kick the footlights out again

I live the kinda life - most men only dream of
I make my livin' writin' songs - and singin' them
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over
So I hide my age and make the stage and try to kick the footlights out again
