Subject: RE: Jesse Winchester battling cancer
He wrote A Showman's Life which Buddy Miller sometimes performs - great lyrics with this chorus:

Nobody told me about this part,
They told me all about the pretty girls,
And the wine,
And the money,
And the good times,
There's no mention of,
All the wear and tear,
On an old honky tonker's heart,
Well I might of known it,
But nobody told me about this part

Great version by Gary Allan
