Who Would You Be (Album Version)

Who Would You Be (Album Version)

George Canyon

We were sitting 'round the table
At the Tuesday poker game
Solvin' all the problems of the world
Tryin' to draw an inside straight
And Jimmy posed the question
As he played a pair of kings
"If you could be anyone in this whole world
Who would you be

Would you be Elvis, shaking up Memphis
Making all the young girls scream
Would you make a speech that would
Change the world like Martin Luther King
Go down in history like Abe Lincoln
'Cause you set a country free
If you could be anyone in this holw world
Tell me, who would you be"

Hank said, "I'd be a cowboy
Someone like John Wayne"
Johnny said, "Hey pilgrim
Blow that cigar smoke the other way"
Said he'd make a million dollars
Pitchin' in the major leagues
Then he stared straight into
Paul's bloodshot eyes and said
"Who would you be

Would you be John Lennon
Can you imagine giving hope with just a song
Would you be the Babe, pointin' that bat
Saying, "This one's going long"
Maybe Moses, partin' the waters
Saying, "Children follow me"
If you could be anyone in this whole world
Tell me, who would you be"

I knew those boys would roll their eyes
When they heard what I had to say
But I shuffled the cards and said, "Deuces wild"
And I told them anyways

I'd be a father who had all the answers
To every question my kids had
I'd learn every word on that coffee cup
That said, "World's Greatest Dad"
Be a perfect husband to that woman
Who means everything to me
If I could be anyone in this whole world
That's who I'd be

Yeah, that's who I'd be
