Teenage Idol  Ricky Nelson

Some people ca[G]ll me a teenage idol  [Em]
Some people s[G]ay they envy m[D]e
I guess they g[G]ot no way of kno[Em]wing
How lones[C/G]ome I can be[G]

I need somebody to be my baby
Someone to tell my troubles to
I've got no time to ever find her
Cause I'm just passing through

I tra[C]vel around from tow[Em]n to lonely to[G]wn
I gu[Em]ess I'll always be just a rolli[D]ng stone
If I find for[C]tune and fame and lots of peo[Em]ple know my n[G]ame
Th[Em]at won't mean a thing if I'm all al[D]one

I get no rest when I'm feeling weary
I got to pack my bags and go
I got to be somewhere tomorrow
To smile and do my show

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I'll always be just a rolling stone
If I find fortune and fame and lots of people know my name
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone

Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be
[C]How lones[D]ome I [G]can be
