DARK SIDE OF FAME
sung by Waylon Jennings
Just a kid with a song when he wandered from home,
in search of the phantom of fame.
She promised she'd wait, but he got back too late.
Just a scene from the dark side of fame.
In the wrong frame of mind, he took to the wine,
holding pieces of love's broken chain.
It was colder than jade, in this world that he'd made,
all alone on the dark side of fame.
His songs were soon curled on the lips of the world.
They had earned him the highest acclaim.
And yet his greatest desire was the simple wamth of love's fire,
cause its cold on the dark side of fame.
The wine took its toll and soon he'd grown old,
much sooner than most people do.
But, there's no trace of shame in the sound of his name,
though he lived on the dark side of fame.
He lived on the dark side of fame.
