     I'm on my way, I'm making it.

Verse 1:

C7                                 Gm
 The place where I come from, is a small town.
Cm                                   Gm
 They think so small, they use small words.
        C7                        Gm
But not me; I'm smarter than that; I worked it out.
Cm
 I've been stretching my mouth,
             Gm
To let those big words come right out.

          C7                             Gm
I've had enough, I'm getting out, to the city, the big, big city.
Cm
 I'll be a big noise, with all the big boys,
        Gm
There's so much stuff I will own.

Bridge 1:

F#                            C7
 And I will pray to a big God, as I kneel in the big church.

Chorus 2:

Gm          Bb         C        F
 (Big Time), I'm on my way, I'm making it,
Gm          Bb   C   F
 (Big Time),  oh yes.
Gm          Bb           C       F
 (Big Time), I've got to make it show, yeah!

Gm          Bb  C       F           Gm    Bb, C  F
 (Big Time),    so much larger than life.
Gm          Bb             C        F
 (Big Time),  I'm going to watch it growing.
Gm          Bb
 (Big Time).

Break:

   F
Oh-oh oh, oh oh, oh-oh oh, oh oh.

Verse 2:

C7                       Gm
 My parties have all the big names,
                                 Cm
And I greet them with the widest smile.
                                    Gm
Tell them how my life is one big ad-venture.
                     C7
And always they're a-mazed,
                           Gm
When I show them 'round my house, to my bed.
         Cm
I had it made like a mountain range,
                  Gm
With a snow-white pillow for my big fat head.

Bridge 2:

F#
 And my Heaven will be a big Heaven,
C7
 And I will walk through the front door.

Chorus 3:

Gm          Bb         C        F
 (Big Time), I'm on my way, I'm making it,
Gm          Bb   C   F
 (Big Time),  oh yes.
Gm          Bb           C       F
 (Big Time), I've got to make it show, yeah!

Gm          Bb  C       F           Gm    Bb, C  F
 (Big Time),    so much larger than life.
Gm          Bb             C        F
 (Big Time),  I'm going to watch it growing.
Gm          Bb
 (Big Time).
Coda:

Gm
 (Big Time), my car is getting bigger,
Cm
 (Big Time), my house is getting bigger.
Gm
 (Big Time), my eyes are getting bigger,
Cm                   Bb
 (Big Time)...and my mouth.

Gm
 (Big Time), my belly is getting bigger,
Cm
 (Big Time), and my bank account.
Gm
 (Big Time), look at my, circumstance,
Cm                   Bb
 (Big Time), and the bulge in my,
                              Gm
Big, big, big, big, big, big, big.
