Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?
Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?


I was a singer in a rock n' roll band
We was heavy, we was out of hand
Rockin' all day on the coast to coast tour
The people were hungry, they needed more

I was the guy singing with that heavyweight chick
She was twice as fast, twice as quick
She could lay a rock on any blues change
And take your mind and rearrange it

But things, oh don't always happen
The way you want them to
Still you have your dreams
But sometimes, the darkness comes pushin' through

Oh, she died all alone down in a motel room
Down in Hollywood
Oh, I don't how other people took it
But I'm still cryin', yeah, today

Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?
Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?


And when she died, it was a terrible scene
The fans deserted, the critics got mean
Couldn't find a job, Lord, couldn't find a friend
I'm down here spirlin', Lord, off the deep end

I started drinkin', yes, and wound up on the skids
My memory's faded like I never lived
I keep bummin' for change, people look right past me
And once in a while, some little kid would ask me

Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?
Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?


I was somebody, I was somebody
Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?
I used to be somebody, I used to be somebody
Hey, didn't you used to be somebody?
I'm somebody
