"RHINESTONE COWBOY"
by: glen campbell
songwriter: 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'll be 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
Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters
from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in
a star-spangled rodeo

FADE
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' card and letters from
people I don't even know
