      {verse}
       After the show, the fiddler stops and drops her bow in the gauzy glow

       After the show, rye on the rocks splash of Pernod and away we go

       To some party in the valley where the leading ladies are in a city night too bright to see a star

       While you’re drinking straight into the dawn, I’m sleeping with my makeup on

       It’s darker now than you could ever know, there’s nothing much to see after the show

      {verse}
       I’m overdressed, got all the cards close to my chest, still I’m a mess...
   e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   B|-6------------6--6-----------------------6--6----------------------6-6----5--|
   G|-6------------6--6-----------------------6--6----------------------6-6----5--|
   D|-6------------6--7-----------------------7--8----------------------8-5----4--|
   A|---------------------------------------------------------------------6----5--|
   E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

       I’m not like you, can’t do that breezy thing you do, it feels untrue
   e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
   B|-6--------------6--6-------------------6--6-----------------6--6-------|
   G|-6--------------6--6-------------------6--6-----------------6--7-------|
   D|-6--------------6--7-------------------7--8-----------------8--8-------|
   A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
   E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

       See, I’m the kind of man who puts his pants on one leg at a time
   e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
   B|---------------7---------------------------------4------------------|
   G|---------------6---------------------------------5------------------|
   D|---------------8---------------------------------6------------------|
   A|---------------6---------------------------------6------------------|
   E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

       You’re the kind who doesn’t give a crying dime
   e|--------------------------------------------------|

   G|-------------6---------------8----------10--------|
   D|-------------7---------------9----------11--------|
   A|-------------7---------------9----------11--------|
   E|--------------------------------------------------|

       And though I stiffen up my upper lip, I’m knee deep in the worst of it
   e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   B|--------------4-----------------------------3-----------------------------|
   G|--------------4-----------------------------4-----------------------------|
   D|--------------6-----------------------------4-----------------------------|
   A|--------------6-----------------------------2-----------------------------|
   E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

       And when the lights go up I’m all alone, there’s garbage in the aisles after the show
   e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

       And even so you hardly know me yet, and I... still don’t know who I am...

      {verse}
       But I’ve got my name, and when I’m gone it might remain, but who’s to say?..

       It’s all a game, a play of silver cellophane, a fleeting flame..

       From the onyx room to the lion’s den, the battle cry of the bleeding pen

       You loved me once so why not once again? But then it’s just a business, kid, that’s how it goes
