Chris Carmack – A Showman's Life lyrics
A showman's life is a smokey bar
And 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 the wine
And the money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well, I might've known it
But nobody told me about this part

A boy will dream as children do
Of a great white way until the dream comes true
And a phony smile in a colored light
Is all there is to a showman's life

Nobody told me about this part
They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine
And the money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well, I might've known it
But nobody told me about this part

Nobody told me about this part
They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine
And the money and the good times
No mention of all the wear and tear
On an old honky tonker's heart
Well, I might've known it
But nobody told me about this part

Well, I might've known it
But nobody told me about this part
