a showman’s life lyrics – gary allan

(feat. willie nelson)

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,

n*body 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 n*body 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,
n*body told me about this part,

n*body 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 n*body told me about this part,

but n*body told me about this part,

n*body 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 n*body told me about this part,

well i might of known it,
but n*body told me about this part
