A SHOWMAN'S LIFE Jesse Winchester - 1978 Buddy Miller & Emmylou Harris - 2002 A showman's life is a smokey bar, 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 Nobody told me about this part They told me all about the pretty girls and wine The money and good times No mention of the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart Well, I might have known it But nobody told me about this part A boy will dream as children do Of a great white way, 'til the dream comes true And a phoney smile in a colored light Is all it is to a showman's life Nobody told me about this part They told me all about the pretty girls and wine The money and good times No mention of the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart Well, I might have known it But nobody told me about this part (Contributed by Nancy - May 2003)
