Rhinestone Cowboy

I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know ev'ry crack on these dirty side-walks of Broadway

Where hustle is the name of the qame
And nice guys get washed away `
Like the snow and the rain

There's been a load of comprimisin' on the road of my horizon

But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a Rhinestone Cowboy
riding on a horse
In a star spangled rodeo
Rhinestone Cowboy

Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
Offers coming over the phone

I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide the pain;
But you're down when you're riding a train
That's taking the long way
But I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway taken and a dollar
Tucked inside my shoe

There's been a load of compromisin' on the road of my horizon
