Rising Star  Lee Hazlewood

[G#]Baby, this [C#]letter might be [G#]hard to read
But I’ve [Bb7]got a strong need to get it all [D#]down
It’s [G#]noon and I’m [C#]lyin’ on the bunk in the [G#]back of the bus
I got [Bb7]thinkin’ about us while I’m bouncing a[D#]round

The [C#]rising star just [Cm]ridin’ along with the [Fm]rest of the guys
Smoking and [Bb7]gettin’ high like he does each [D#]trip
‘Bout [C#]two o’clock he’ll [Cm]say I think I’ll [Fm]sip some crow
By the [Bb7]time of the show the rising star will be ripped   [D#]

[G#]Later on when the [C#]job is done we’re [G#]back on the bus
He’ll t[Bb7]urn to the guys and smile in a funny [D#]way
And say [C#]tell me once again how good I [G#]played
And they [C#]call him the rising [G#]star and they say he’s [C#]gonna go [G#]far
But each [F#]night he gets far (?) he ever be[D#7]lieved
[G#]Something inside me [C#]grieves cause sure as [G#]hell one day
They [C#]say the rising star will fade a[G#]way
Last night the rising star got lost with a girl for an hour or so
Barely made the shoe, kinda stumbled on
Forgot the words to the song he wrote about his wife
Said guess that’s life but I was wrong

Cause every night when I go on I’m the rising star
Me and my guitar start to get it on
Living is when they stand and cheering and call my name
But I’ll try to change before too long

Something about the here and now said drop a line
To say I’m fine but I’d like to say not every rising star fades away

And they call me the rising star, baby I’m gonna go far
With you beside me I swear by the pen in my hand
I’ll be damned if you ever gone to see the day
That drunken, stoned and all alone, You’ll see this rising star fade away
