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.
