      Bobby Bare - Sure Hit Songwriters Pen Música y Letra

      I was hangin' round Nashville writin' songs
      And playin' them for all of the stars
      Watchin' them laugh and hand 'em back
      Livin' on hope and Hershey bars.
      So I pawned my guitar and bought a ticket home
      And I's a headin' for the trailway bus
      When I seen an old fountain pen layin' in the gutter
      So I stopped and picked it up.
      It was worn out and bent and cast aside
      Kinda sorta like myself
      So I sat down on the curb and wrote a little song
      That told the world how both of us felt.
      Then I run that song down the Music Row
      And before I had time to spit
      It's pitched and sold and cut for a record
      And movin' up the charts and damned it's a hit.
      So I wrote me another winner
      Then I wrote me a smash again
      And it's a flyin' off the ground 'cause I knew I found
      Me a sure hit songrwiter pen.
      So the songs they just kept a pourin' out
      And the money kept pourin' in
      Oh, I just couldn't miss all it took was a twist
      Of my sure hit songwriter's pen.
      Remember when I won the Grammy
      Then I won it again and again
      Well, none of you knew it was all due
      To my sure hit songwriter's pen.
      I was a darling of all of the ladies
      I was a hero among the men
      Makin' big dough, workin' rodeos and TV shows
      Me and my sure hit songwriter pen.
      But then one night in Wichita
      I was just comin' off of the stage
      Folks all lined up screamin' for my autograph
      And Lord, I was a nation rage.
      One little freckle faced girl was there
      She said I got no pencil sir
      So I signed it with my songwriter pen
      And then handed the pen back to her.
      Four o'clock that morning I woke up
      With the shakes and the bends
      With terror in my eyes 'cause good God, I realized
      I'd lost my sure hit songwriter pen.
      I offered rewards in papers
      And I pleaded on the sympathy line
      And a whole lotta folks sent a whole lotta pens
      But none of them pens was mine.
      So my songs got worse and my money ran out
      And so did all my good time friends
      And there was no doubt I was nothing without
      My long lost sure hit songwriter pen.
      So I rolled like a stone down old Skid Row
      Where I fed my blues on wine
      And I rest my chops in a two-bit flop
      And I tell my story for a drink or a dime.
      And I sleep with my shoes underneath my head
      Dream about days back then
      When I blazed my name across the sky
      With my sure hit songwriter pen.
      Somewhere in Wichita some little girl
      Who's a freckle faced and nine or ten
      Is doin' her arithmetic homework tonight
      With the sure hit songwriter's pen.
      I'll say God bless you honey
      You got yourself a sure hit songwriter pen there
      Write a song for me baby
      You got a sure hit songwriter pen.
      Send me some money
      You got a sure hit songwriter pen...
