Kris Kristofferson - The show goes on lyrics
We used to talk about the Rock and the Roll That made it matter not to sell your soul Like a banner that we held so high, we weren't afraid to fall Steady rolling through the warning signs That were hidden in between the lines That kept us rocking 'til the break of day Or any break at all. We used to take about a day and a night To try to sing up all the soul in sight And anyone who couldn't see the light We had to leave behind And the sweetest thing you ever heard Was the singing of the Speckled Bird And commercial was a dirty word We laid it on the line. It was all so easy then We could do no wrong We'll never be the same again But the show goes on. We used to drink about a bucket of booze To try to chase away the black and blues And when it came the time to pay your dues You gave an I.O.U. To the devil with the dirty smile Which he added to the growing pile Of the promises you mean to keep The day your dreams come true. It was all so easy then We could do no wrong We'll never be the same again But the show goes on...
