A Showman's Life Lyrics by Gary US Bonds
A Showman's Lifeby Gary US Bonds
A showman's life is a smoky bar / And the fevered chase of a tiny star / It's a hotel room and a lonely wife / From what I've seen a showman's life // CHORUS: Nobody told me about this part / They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine / And the money and the good times / There's 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 till the dream comes true / And a phony smile in a colored light / Is all there is to a showman's life /// REPEAT CHORUS TWICE /// Well, I might have known it, but nobody told me about this part
