Buddy Miller    A Showman's Life   written by Jesse Winchester

            F                C
A showman's life is a smokey bar and
             Dm             Bb
The fevered chase of a tiny star 
             Dm                Bb
It's a hotel room and a lonely wife 
               F                   C
From what I've seen of a showman's life
                          F
Nobody told me about this part 
Bb                         F
They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine and
    C                  F
The money and the good times 
   Bb                                     Dm          C        Bb
Bb/A
Gm
No mention of all the wear and tear on an old honkey-tonker's heart 
      F
Well, I might have known it 
C                         F          C
But nobody told me about this part
           F                 C
A boy will dream as children do 
                 Dm                        Bb
Of a great white way, 'til the dream comes true 
             Dm                 Bb
And a phoney smile in a colored light 
          F                 C
Is all it is to a showman's life
                      F
Nobody told me about this part 
Bb                         F
They told me all about the pretty girls and the wine and
    C                  F
The money and the good times 
   Bb                                     Dm           C       Bb
