Lyrics

A showman's life is a smokey bar and
The fevered chase of a tiny star
It's a hotel room and a lonely wife
From what I've seen of a showman's life
Nobody told me about this part

They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine and
The money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart
Well, I might have known it
But nobody told me about this part

A boy will dream as children do
Of a great white way, 'til the dream comes true
And a phoney smile in a colored light
Is all it is to a showman's life
Nobody told me about this part

They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine and
The money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart
Well, I might have known it
But nobody told me about this part
Nobody told me about this part

They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine and
The money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart
Well, I might have known it
But nobody told me about this part
Well, I might have known it
But nobody told me about this part
