Keepin' walkin' these streets so long singin' the same old song
He knows every crack on those 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 his horison
But he's gonna be where the lights are shinin' on him
Like a Rhinestone Cowboy ridin' out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone Cowboy gettin' cards and letter from people he don't even know
And offers coming over the phone

He 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 taking the long way
And he dreams of the things he'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside his shoe
There'll be a load of compromisin'...
Like a Rhinestone Cowboy...
