    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
