A Showman's Life
By George Strait
CD: Here For A Good Time - 2011
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
9/10/2011


Capo 3

D  A  Bm  Bm/A  G  G/F#  Em


            D                A 
A showman's life is a smokey bar
                Bm         Bm/A  G 
And the fevered chase of a tiny    star
             Bm         Bm/A   G  
It's a hotel room and a lonely   wife
               D                   A                         D
From what I've seen of a showman's life nobody told me about this part


Chorus:
G                          D 
They told me all about the pretty girls
        D            A             D 
And the wine and the money and the good times
           G
There's no mention of all the wear and tear
      Bm        A        G     G/F#  Em
On an old honky tonker's heart
     D
Well I might of known it
    A                    D
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

Solo

Nobody told me about this part

Chorus

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