Tommy James - Shy Boy Lyrics




Nobody ever told him it was gonna be easy.
Nobody took the time to tell him what to do.
Small town couldn't keep him from the lights of the city;
Big dreams have a way of doin' that to you.
And in his mind, he knew just the way it would happen.
He had the look of a champion in his eyes.
He took a chance with a ticket on a train to glory.
He didn't know he was in for a big surprise.
He was a shy boy, such a shy boy.
He had a new kind of style. He was a million to one.
He had a way with his smile and he was learnin' to run.
He was a shy boy (shy boy), Lord, such a shy boy.
It could've happened to you, it could've happened to me;
He could've been anything that he wanted to be.

Everybody always said that they knew he would make it.
And hometown is the last one to say it so.
Pretty soon, the fast life was makin' him lonely.
That's somethin' that you just never let them know.
You keep keepin' in on and that's a nasty habit.
But that's what you gotta do when you're glory bound.
And all he wanted was time, but he didn't have it;
That glory train is the hardest one to slow down.
He was a shy boy, such a shy boy.
He had a new kind of style. He was a million to one.
He had a way with his smile and he was learnin' to run.
He was a shy boy (shy boy), oh, such a shy boy.
It could've happened to you, it could've happened to me;
He could've been anything that he wanted to be.

I heard it on the radio this morning:
Another star has fallen from the sky.
How come there was nobody there to warn him?
Why do all the dreamers have to die?
He was a shy boy (shy boy), such a shy boy.
He had a new kind of style. He was a million to one.
He had a way with his smile and he was learnin' to run.
He was a shy boy (shy boy), Lord, such a shy boy.
It could've happened to you, it could've happened to me;
He could've been anything that he wanted to be.
Except a shy boy (shy boy), oh, such a shy boy.
He had a new kind of style. He was a million to one.
He had a way with his smile and he was learnin' to run.
He was a shy boy (shy boy).
(shy boy)
(shy boy)
