The Big Time
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I ain't never seen the big time
Honey that's okay with me
I ain't never seen the big time
Honey that's okay with me

Just a sittin' on this front porch
All the big time I'll ever need

I'll buy you a ticket to the big time
Might need a loan but that ain't nothin' new
Buy you a ticket to the big time
Might need a loan but that ain't nothin' new

They say I can't afford the big time?
Baby I'll just write an IOU

There ain't no one in the big time
That hangs out the laundry like you do
There ain't no one in the big time
That hangs out the laundry like you do

I'm a-having myself a big time
Just watching you rub and scrub the whole day through

I ain't never seen the big time
Honey that's okay with me
I ain't never seen the big time
Honey that's okay with me

Just a-sittin' on this front porch
All the big time I'll ever need
Just a-sittin' on this front porch
All the big time I'll ever need

Dwight's sinkin' those rock-a-billy roots even deeper on this one.  Great stuff!  Pour me another one will ya sweetie.

Chris White Jr

This is the most rockabilly song I’ve ever heard by Dwight. It’s fantastic. Sounds like it could’ve been recorded by Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent or Buddy Holly. 👌👌

jose cooli

Elvis would of done this song justice.
