Lyrics:

Well there I was, a-working through the crowd without a care
As I closed the case on my guitar I saw her standing there
I caught her eye and looked her down, my heart sprinting away
I introduced myself although I knew she'd missed me play

Well I said, I'm big around here
And I said, you oughtta know
And she said, I've never heard you on the radio
So I said, well, I'm big in Jersey
And I said, come to my show
But she said, I've still never heard you on the radio

Oh, oh, oh

Back then I played for tips and change, and made a living thus
I had a mic and a guitar but a record was way too much
So I went home, I got some wire, resistors, tape, and glue
And built me an FM transmitter well before the night was through

Well I said, I'm big around here
And I said, you oughtta know
And she said, I've never heard you on the radio
So I said, well, I'm big in Jersey
And I said, come to my show
But she said, I've still never heard you on the radio

Oh, oh, oh

Well I said, how nice to see you
And I saw her eyes aglow
And she said last night I heard you on the radio
So I said some humble nothings
And that night I took her home
And it's all because she heard me on the radio

Oh, oh, oh
