lyrics

He ain't ever played the big stage, Darling
'Cept for maybe a couple of times
But, you can find him on a small stage, Darling
Guess he's a small stage kind of guy

The songs he sings, they will not make you move your feet
Ain't no one dancing 'cross that floor
Just a crew of regulars and a bunch of empty seats
There ain't no lines outside that door

He ain't ever played the big stage, Darling
But, It ain't like he hasn't tried
You can find him on a small stage, Darling
A pint of beer and a tip jar to the side

Ain't nobody ever said that he was the "latest thing"
Quite likely no one ever will
But, unlike most every "latest thing" that's come and gone
He's up there singing for you still

He ain't ever played the big stage, Darling
Hell, he ain't even got a band
But, you can find him on a small stage, Darling
All alone with just a guitar in his hand

Sometimes he wonders why he does it anymore
But, he still gets nervous before every show
Then it all makes sense once he starts singing that first song
It's something he learned many years ago

He ain't ever played the big stage, Darling
But, what's a big stage anyhow?
There's something truthful 'bout a small stage, Darling
And a falling tree will always make a sound
Nowhere to hide up on that small stage, Darling
Yeah, a falling tree still always makes a sound
