A Showman’s Life
By Gary Allan
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
rmofle at satx.rr.com



            E                B 
A showman’s life is a smokey bar
                C#m             A 
And the fevered chase of a tiny star
             C#m               A  
It’s a hotel room and a lonely wife
               E                   B                         E
From what I’ve seen of a showman’s life nobody told me about this part


Chorus:
A                          E 
They told me all about the pretty girls
        E            B             E 
And the wine and the money and the good times,
           A
There’s no mention of all the wear and tear,
      C#m B              A
On an old honky tonker’s heart
     E
Well I might of known it,
   B                     E
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

Chorus

But nobody told me about this part

Chorus

Well I might of known it
But nobody told me about this part
