or
Buddy Jewell

Excuse me uh, but do you actually have yes in your vocabulary,
I guess it started when I was a kid,
If you said I couldn't do it I did,
Always had a stubborn streak,

Put a wall in front of me,
And I'll find a way to get around it,
There was a friend who said I'd never make the team,
A lot of small town talk said I'd never leave,
Ah and you know who you are,

You all played a part,
In pushin' me on to my dream,
I want to thank everone who ever told me no,
Pack it up and get back home,

It kept me going knowin' I would prove them wrong,
Yea I knew it all along,
Without 'm I might have given up a long time ago, and so,
I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,

Played my music for a man behind a desk,
He said sorry what you've got I just don't get,
Ah but here I am today,
Standin' on this stage,

And I wonder even now if he gets it yet
I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,
Pack it up and get back home,
It kept me going knowin' I would prove them wrong,

Yeah I knew it all along,
Without 'm I might have given up a long time ago, and so,
I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,
The ones who said I'd never make it,

Those who doubted I could take it,
I'll owe ya one,
I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,
Pack it up and get back home,

It kept me going knowin' I would prove them wrong,
Yeah I knew it all along,
Without 'm I might have given up a long time ago, and so,
I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,
Yea I want to thank everyone who ever told me no,
