Lyrics

The Reason Why
by Reggie Miles © 2011 All rights reserved

No, he ain't no beauty queen
And his voice ain't sweet like honey
He hasn't toured the world
In a limousine
And he ain't got a lot o' money

He ain't the best picker
Harmonica player
Or storyteller by far
But he loves singin', 'n' playin' songs
On his beat up ol' guitar

And everybody wants to know the reason why
Why he can't get a job, like other folks, 'n' wear a suit 'n' tie
He just looks 'em, in the eye and says, "It ain't cuz I don't try".
He's got a gypsy's heart, an artist's soul and a love he can't deny

He's got a woman who says she loves him
A couple of kids in school
A fixer upper house
A broke down truck
A dawg that howls like some ol' fool

And when she gets that worried look
And when she starts to cry
He pleads with her
Again 'n' again
To believe that they'll get by

And everybody wants to know the reason why
Why he can't change, they don't understand, he ain't that kind of guy
To sell his soul to live a different life, he'd have to live a lie
He's got a gypsy's heart, an artist's soul and a love he can't deny

No, you won't see his name in lights
The headlines pass him by
And all the magazines
Full of beauty queens
Have got bigger fish to fry
You won't see him on the tv
Or catch him on the radio
But you can hear him singin'
On the street
With all his heart and soul

And everybody wants to know the reason why
Why he's always reachin' for the stars, don't he know that he can't fly
If they truly knew him, they wouldn't shake their heads and sigh
He's got a gypsy's heart, an artist's soul and a love he can't deny
