ROCK STAR'S LAMENT (Shel Silverstein / Fred Koller) Bobby Bare - recorded in November 1979 released in March 1980 I have pawned my golden records I have sold my sequinned suits For a bottle of rye whiskey I gave up my fancy boots Now I stand here on the corner With a sad, sad tale to tell Once a rock star, now a drunkard With no song left to sell I've a face you might remember I've a voice you may recall Twas that cold night in December When we played Carnegie Hall And I was smokin' marijuana Singin' flat, but doin' well Till I took my first drink of whiskey Then started down the road to hell (Instrumental Break) I have pawned my golden records I have sold my sequinned suits For a bottle of rye whiskey I gave up my fancy boots Now I stand here on the corner With a sad, sad tale to tell Once a dopefiend, now a drunkard With no song left to sell Once a rock star, now a drunkard With no song left to sell With no song left to sell (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
