Not Gonna Lie
Lyrics

(Tom Hambridge)

WHEN I STARTED OUT
I SANG A LOT OF WORDS
THINGS I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT
JUST WHAT I HAD HEARD
MY WOMAN HADN’T LEFT ME YET
I WAS TOO YOUNG AT THE TIME
GET READY FOR THE TRUTH
‘CAUSE I’M NOT GONNA LIE

MUSIC WAS MY WAY OUT
FROM POVERTY AND CRIME
I DIDN’T WANT TO BE LIKE THAT
THERE’S MORE I HAD TO FIND
SHOWING MY FRUSTRATION
I LET MY FINGERS FLY
MY GUITAR IS WHAT SAVED ME
AND I’M NOT GONNA LIE

SO AND SO WILL HOLD YOU BACK
THIS THAT AND THE THIRD
I WASN’T HAVING NONE OF THAT
NOT ONE LYIN’ WORD

PEOPLE COME TO SEE ME
IT’S REALLY DOPE FOR SURE
BLUES IS WHERE I COME FROM
DOCTOR GOT NO CURE
GOT TO KEEP IT GOING
I PROMISED BUDDY GUY
THIS IS OUR HISTORY
AND I’M NOT GONNA LIE

THIS IS OUR HISTORY
AND I’M NOT GONNA LIE
I’M NOT GONNA LIE
I’M NOT GONNA LIE
