Hasselhoff, David - Rhinestone Cowboy Lyrics

I've been walking these streets so long
Singing the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain

There's been a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where they lights are shinin' on me...

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're riding the train that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe

There'll be a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where they lights are shinin' on me...

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Hasselhoff, David Rhinestone Cowboy Comments

    Absolute nails this version. The hoff doesn’t take himself too serious. Folk on here shouldn’t too 🙌🏼🙂

  2. bgill694

    Hes lip synching!!! But the song sounds good on him. Hes just not performing it live here

  3. Alan Al

    Marvellous cover of the late Glen Campbell super hit. Very good orchestra just love the lively beat and David stage movement. Awesome. Very talented Knight Rider and friendly guy.

  4. Martin Keane

    Hoff is simply class ... is there anything he can't do...

  5. RoseBudpony1

    only tolerable country song coz it’s original & not too boring.

  6. Trevor Bourgeois


  7. Jenny Ralte

  24. zofia zajac

    Uwielbiam to .....

  25. Milo Wolf

    Good god, his voice....is amazing. Those low notes, I never knew his voice could drop that low. O__O I'm in love.

  26. Daniel Olewski

    I'm delighted, because this song is remarkable. The performance of David Hasselhoff is really beautiful and unrepeatable. It's excellent voice and fascinating dance!

  27. Samuel Wahlberg

    why does he always lipsynck?

  28. Julia Brown

    What a great voice.. I love it

  29. Dschoean

    I don't get it. I'd rather hear some pitchy vocals than this autotune mutilation. Hasselhoff does not need this treatment, he has a good voice.

  30. mizmusiclorikeet aka Kara L

    This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen, he's such a ham, that giant cowboy boot just *slays* me. Oh and he's not exactly painful to look at either. ;')

  31. Sick of PC BS

    Sounded like crap, but at least he was sober... for a change

  32. Firdaus Motafram

    The most bullshit song... bhosdo

  33. Louis Parsons

    I physically cannot watch this without pissing myself laughing and i dont even know why he's not even a bad singer i think its the dancing

  34. Thinura Cooray

    What a great voice! Never knew he could sing!

    Alice Henderson

    I hadn't really heard his songs til last June, boy was I shocked, he is amazing

    What's up with the oversized boot?

    John Lindsey

    He is playing to a bunch of krauts in the Fatherland das Herr Fuehrer. They need a visual hint of cowboys.

    pure cheddar! but who's better?

    Krystal Harwood

    @Frank Spacoli GC

  73. Jake Marsing

    Obvious lip syncing is obvious.


    wow groovin!

  75. Demont Washington

    Live performance my fat black ass. He's lip-synching. Watching him perform this (notice I didn't say "sing") is like watching Justin Bieber doing James Brown.


    @Demont Washington 
     Real live on this one.

  76. jeffy123 master


  77. Frank Walsh

    I didn't know he could sing.
    That was a nice surprise.
    Good for you David!

  78. FishOnTwoWheels

    Of course David doesn't hold a candle to Glen, but it's not a bad attampt and quite a respectable one at that!

  79. mikorara

    I'm  surprised  at  how  many  people dislike  Hasselhoff's  rendition  of this  classic. Like  him  or  not ,  DH  has  a good  voice  and   if  you  think the  contrary then  please have  your  hearing  checked. To say  that  this  awful  like many  of  you  have  written  below  is  absolutely ridiculous  and  biased. Your  obvious  dislike  of  this  man  must  take precedence.


    mikorara well, its not really his voice....yes he is singing but its heavily assisted by technology. if you want to hear what he actually sounds like, listn to night rocker. aside from the songs being absurdly cheesy, his singing is not absolutely terrible,.just not perticularly good either.


    People who hate The Hoff can Kiss my ass! Seeing HIM live next Year .... Proud to Be à Hoff-fan

    Filipp Hinterschuster



    mikorara it’s called a opinion douchebag

  80. Geoffrey Holland

    lip sync

  81. Survivrs

    Hasselhoff sucks. He could never hold a candle to Glen Campbell.

  82. Spirit Alight

    Sehr gut!

  83. Daniel Self

    Wow  I loved  it 


    Me too.. I love you too :)

  84. B A Guy

    i wonder what percentage of the backing musicians killed themselves later in life...


    now that`s funny,nearly pissed myself,great comment man

  85. Robin Hot for you

    Echt super gesungen Bravo!!!!

  86. John Lindsey

    a bunch of people were having a lot of fun. so what if you do not like him, there's always the beaver for you.

  87. I.maiden 4 life eddie

    He shoulda stuck with gaywatch lmao

  88. I.maiden 4 life eddie

    The wannabe cowboy lol

  89. CathyRuhl

  96. Michael Holm

    dude he's really singing the song

    Alice Henderson

    Yep he really is singing, he has an amazing time & puts so much feeling in his songs, love listening to his music, people that don't like his music need hearing aids

  97. Peter Clausen

    Of course, the ZDF would not have singers really singing on their network. For real.
