Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)
by Dan Seals



Saw your picture on a poster
In a cafe out in phoenix
Guess your still the sweatheart of the rodeo
As for me and little Casey
We still make the circuit
In a one horse trailer and a mobile home
And she still ask about you all the time
And 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
Everything that glitters is not gold

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

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
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 someday I'm sure you're gonna know the cost
Cause for everything you win there's something lost

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
Everything that glitters is not gold

Everything that glitters is not gold
