rhinestone cowboy lyrics – glen campbell

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

rhinestone cowboy
gettin’ cards and letters from people i don’t even know
and offers comin’ over the phone

like a rhinestone cowboy
riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo

like a rhinestone cowboy
gettin’ card and letters from people i don’t even know
