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 compromising 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 There'll be a load of compromising 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 Rhinestone cowboy Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know And offers coming over the phone 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
