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
There's no mention of
All the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well I might of known it
But nobody told me about this part

A boy will dream
As children do
Of a great white way
Until the dream comes true
And a phony smile
In a colored light
Is all there 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
There's no mention of
All the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well I might of 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
There's no mention of
All the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well I might of known it
But nobody told me about this part

Well I might of known it
But nobody told me about this part
