Folksinger

I’m a folksinger and folk’s what I’m singing for

It ain’t a job it’s a holy mission and it’s more

I ain’t doing it for money and I ain’t doing it for fun

I’m a folksinger and I’m singing just to turn you on

 

The best time I’ve had was picking and singing in a travelling band

It’s like a dream come true now I can even do it all by myself

And I ain’t picking for money and I ain’t singing for fun

I’m picking and singing baby just to turn you on

 

People sometimes ask me what’s that kind of music you’re playing

I can’t tell ’cause it really never had a name

And I ain’t playing for money I ain’t playing for fun

I’m playing my music baby just to turn you on

 

I’m a folksinger and I sing both night and day

It’s like whistling in the dark I don’t need to talk to show what I’m saying

And I ain’t whistling for money I ain’t talking for fun

I’m saying what I mean baby just to turn you on

 

Turn on the microphone and let me be with you a while

My it sure feels good and it’s been such a long long time

And I want to stay here for ever at least till I’m 75

I wanna be a folksinger up until the day I die

 

I’m a folksinger and folk’s what I’m singing for

Yeah I’m a real folksinger and I’m singing just to turn you on
