I'm not sure who wrote this song, but I suspect it was Travis Tritt himself.
He is the one that performs this tune. Play it with a nice, country strum.
I'M GONNA BE SOMEBODY, by Travis Tritt
Transcribed by Diron Ahlquist
[G]Bobby played his [D]guitar on the [C]hard side of [D]town
[G]Where it's hard for a [D]poor boy to find the [C]mon[D]ey.
[G]He had dedica[D]tion, he [C]had the heart and [D]soul.
[C]Somehow [D]knew he was born to [G]play.
[G]They said get a [D]real job sup[C]port your fami[D]ly
[G]Cause there's no [D]future on the [C]road your [D]takin'
[G]But he never [D]said a word, the [C]dreamer just kept [D]on
[C]Late at [D]night you could hear him [G]sing.
[G]I'm gonna [C]be somebod[D]y, [G]one of these [C]days I'm gonna [D]break
[G]I'm gonna [C]be somebod[D]y, some[Em]day, you can [C]bet your hard earned
[D]dollar I [G]will.
[G]Bobby played his [D]hometown, one [C]full moon August [D]night
[G]He heard a [D]voice out [C]in the front [D]row
[G]It's a sandy-haired [D]Texas boy with [C]same ole hungry [D]eyes
[C]Looked up at [D]Bobby and [G]said
You can bet your hard earned dollar I will.
