Abc – Rhinestone Cowboy lyrics

Rhinestone Cowboy

Glen Campbell

Words and Music by Larry Weiss

– peak Billboard position # 1 in 1975

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 don’t really 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’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

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

FADE

Like a rhinestone cowboy

Gettin’ card and letters from people I don’t even know
