Everything that Glitters

Everything that Glitters
(Bob McDill)

Saw your picture on a poster in a cafe out of Phoenix
Guess you're still the sweetheart of the rodeo
As for me and little Casey, we still make the circuit
In a one-horse trailer and a motor home
She still asks about you all the time
Though I guess we never even cross your mind

   But, oh, sometimes I think about you
   And the way you used to ride out
   In your rhinestones and your sequins
   With the sunlight on your hair
   And oh, the crowd will always love you
   But as for me I've come to know
   That everything that glitters is not gold

Well, old Red, he just gets older and last Saturday he stumbled
But somehow I just can't bear to let him go
And little Casey, she's still growing and she's started asking questions
And there's things a man like me just doesn't know
Her birthday came and you never even called
I guess we never cross your mind at all

   But, oh, sometimes I think about you
   And the way you used to ride out
   In your rhinestones and your sequins
   With the sunlight on your hair
   And oh, the crowd will always love you
   But as for me I've come to know
   That everything that glitters is not gold

      Everybody said you'd make it big someday
      And I guess that we were only in your way
      But I tell myself you'll come to know the cost
      Cause for everything you win there's something lost

   But then sometimes I think about you
   And the way you used to ride out
   In your rhinestones and your sequins
   With the sunlight on your hair
   And oh, the crowd will always love you
   But as for me I've come to know
   That everything that glitters is not gold

   Dan Seals had a hit with this.
