Rinestone Cowboy

Rhinestone Cowboy - Larry Weiss -

I’ve been walkin’ these streets so long 
Singin’ the same old song 
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway 
Where hustle’s the name of the game 
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain 

There’s been a load of compromisin’
On the road to my horizon
But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don’t even know
And offers comin’ over the phone 

Well, I really don’t mind the rain 
And a smile can hide all the pain 
But you’re down when you’re ridin’ the train that’s takin’ the long way 
And I dream of the things I’ll do 
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe 

There’s been a load of compromisin’
On the road to my horizon
But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don’t even know
And offers comin’ over the phone
