Rhinestone Cowboy    (midi)

 

                      G                              C  G                                  C    G

1. I've been walking these streets so long, singing the same old song.

                                                                                  D           - G - D

    I know every crack on these dirty sidewalks of Broadway.

                 C

    Where hustle is the name of the game,

                                                                                            G    - C - G

    and nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain.

                               D                                           C                  G

    There's been a load of compromising on the road to my horizon,

           C                                     A                              D

    but I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me.

 

             C     D       G           - C - G

Like a rhinestone cowboy ,

                                          Em                      D  - G - D

riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo.

             C     D       G         - C - G

Lika a rhinestone cowboy,

                                                  Em                          D

getting cards and letters from people I don't even know,

                                               C       - D

and offers coming over the phone.

 

                 G                        C   G                                       C    G

2. Well, I really don't mind the rain, and a smile can hide the pain,

                                                                                                    D

    But you're down when you're riding a train that's taking the long way.

- G - D              C

            But I dream of the things I'll do,

                                                                                G           - C - G

    with a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe.

                               D                                            C                 G

    There's been a load of compromising on the road to my horizon,

           C                                     A                              D

    but I'm gonna be where the lights are shining on me. 

 

+ CHORUS
