Glen Campbell

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's the name of the game,
and nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain.

[There's been/**There'll be] a load of compromisin'
on the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shining 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 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 the 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.


Chorus (bis)

*Damit geht der Witz dieser Zeile verloren. Larry Weiss hatte "broad" statt "crack" gesungen.
