lyrics

I've seen your black bound scrapbook
I'm sure you must have shown it a thousand times
Seen the signed old theatre bills and I've seen the thrills
And read the paper lines
And I've heard you reminisce old times with just a few of my friends
Who are much too young to remember any vaudeville trends

Spent your whole life on the stage until 1953
When the theatre died and circus ride could not match the TV
You had a wife and two children but not a chance to play
Just settled down in a Midland town then you all
Ah, you called it a day

Father, oh father, it's Showbiz Joe
Losing what you had a long time ago
Oh brother, oh brother, yes, down the road we go
Taking out the family name towards another show

Ooh, twenty years later, how can I understand
While I still playing and sitting in all these rock 'n' roll bands
But when the show is over, I got my guitar locked away
Maybe, maybe I will realize the blues you had to face, I say

Oh father, oh father, it's Showbiz Joe
Losing what you had a long time ago
Oh brother, oh brother, down the road we go
Taking out the family name towards another show

Oh father, oh father, it's Showbiz Joe
Losing what you had a long time ago
Oh brother, oh brother, down the road we go
Taking out the family name towards another show
