Rhinestone cowboy

Uitvoerende(n): Glen Campbell
Tekst: 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
     Like a rhinestone cowboy
     Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
     And offers comin' over the phone

Terug
