Rhinestone Cowboy

I've been walking these streets so long
Singing the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle is the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromising
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me

CHORUS:
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 coming 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 riding a train
That's taking the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
There's been a load of compromising
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me

Chorus:
