Well, my name is A. Frank Willis, and I do a one-man show,
I played for full and empty seats, always on the go;
Sometimes got more than I was worth, sometimes I not got paid,
Did a show for Joey Smallwood, met Tobin in Twillingate.
I played for teens and I played for queens, played for weddings, too,
In concert halls and country stalls, more than just a few;
I wrote about my travels and I put 'em down in song,
I raised a lot o' hoot and hell, but I ain't done no wrong.
My mama she stills tells me, that I don't act my age,
Feel at home down in the crowd or up here on the stage;
I've traveled all across this country, seen the highs and blues,
I'm a one man band from Newfoundland and I don't wear no shoes.
But I walked the straight and narrow, and I don't mess with sin,
Climbed the hill of country charts, been in the discount bins;
I headlined at some sold-out shows, flirted once with fame,
It may not be the way it was, but I'm still in the game.
I play nearly every night, somewhere in this land,
I'll grace the stages of this country long as I got fans;
Smiling faces in the crowd, sure is nice to see,
Here tonight in Hearts Delight is where I chose to be.
Well, my name is A. Frank Willis and I do a one man show.
