Alan Jackson – Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Daddy won a radio
He tuned it to a country show
I was rocking in the cradle to the crying of a steel guitar
Mama used to sing to me
She taught me that sweet harmony
Now she worries cause she never thought
I’d ever really take it this far
Singing in the bars
[Chorus]
And chasing that neon rainbow
Living that honky-tonk dream
Cause all I’ve ever wanted
Is to pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
I’m chasing that neon rainbow
Living that honky-tonk dream
[Verse 2]
An atlas and a coffee cup
Five pickers in an old Dodge truck
Heading down to Houston for a show on Saturday night
This overhead is killing me
Half the time I sing for free
When the crowd’s into it, lord
It makes this thing I’m doing seem right
Standing in the spotlight
[Chorus]
And chasing that neon rainbow
I’m-a living that honky-tonk dream
Cause all I’ve ever wanted
Is to pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
I’m chasing that neon rainbow
Living that honky-tonk dream
[Verse 3]
Now daddy’s got a radio
He won it thirty years ago
He said; son I just know
We’re going to hear you singing on it some day
I made it up to Music Row
Lordy, don’t the wheels turn slow
Still I wouldn’t trade a minute
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Just show me to the stage
[Chorus]
I’m chasing that neon rainbow
I’m-a living that honky-tonk dream
Cause all I’ve ever wanted
Is to pick this guitar and sing
Just trying to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen
I’m chasing that neon rainbow
Living that honky-tonk dream
[Outro]
Oh I’m chasing that neon rainbow
Living that honky-tonk dream
