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’ cards and letters from people I don’t even know….

And offers comin’ over the phone
