[VERSE 1]
         D2           D2/F#        G           D2
Saw your picture on a poster, in a cafe out in Pheonix
             Bm                   A2         G        G
Guess you're still the sweetheart of the rodeo.
       D2            D2/F#     G                 D2
As for me and little Casey,    we still make the circuit
     Bm                A2           G       G
In a one-horse trailer and a mobile home.
    Em              Em               A2       A2
And she still asks about you all the time
      Em             Em              A2       A[stop]
And I guess we never even cross your mind.


[FIRST CHORUS]
             D              D/F#              G               D
But, oh, sometimes I think about you, and the way you used to ride out
        D                    D                 A           A4   A
In your rhinestones and your sequins, with the sunlight on your hair
             D                 D/F#                 G               D
And, oh, the crowd will always love you, but as for me I've come to know
     D                  A           D          D 
Everything that glitters.... is not gold.


[VERSE 2]
          D                 D/F#            G           D
Well, old Red, he's getting older, and last Saturday he stumbled
        Bm                A2              G       G
But you know I just can't bear to let him go.
       D                  D/F#               G              D
Little Casey, she's still growing, and she's started asking questions
            Bm               A2               G      G
And there's certain things a man just doesn't know.
Em                        Em         A2        A2
Her birthday came and you never even called
  Em             Em                 A2        A
I guess we never cross your mind at all.


[SECOND CHORUS]
             D              D/F#              G               D
But then sometimes I think about you, and the way you used to ride out
        D                    D                 A           A4   A
In your rhinestones and your sequins, with the sunlight on your hair
             D                 D/F#                 G               D
And, oh, the crowd will always love you, but as for me I've come to know
     D                  A           D       [D2&4]  D
Everything that glitters.... is not gold.


[BRIDGE]
     Bm              A               G       G
Everybody said you'd make it big someday,
      Bm                 A            G        G
And I guess that we were only in your way.
        D                     A              G          G
But someday, I'm sure, you're gonna know the cost
          Em             Em                     A2      A
Cause for everything you win, there's something lost.


[FINAL SLOW CHORUS] 
             D              D/F#              G               D
But, oh, sometimes I think about you, and the way you used to ride out
        D                    D                 A           A4  A
In your rhinestones and your sequins, with the sunlight on your hair
             D                 D/F#                 G               D
And, oh, the crowd will always love you, but as for me I've come to know
     D                  A           D     Em D/F#   G
Everything that glitters.... is not gold,           Oooooooooh
     D                  A                         D
Everything that glitters................. is not gold
