Pocket of a Clown
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


Inside the pocket of a clown
Is a sad place to hang around
Just watching smiles turn into frowns
Inside the pocket of a clown

Inside the heartache of a fool
You'll learn things they don't teach in school
And lessons there can be real cruel
Inside the heartache of a fool
Hollow lies
Make a thin disguise
As little drops of truth
Fall from your eyes

Hollow lies
Make a thin disguise
As little drops of truth
Fall from your eyes

Inside a memory from the past
Lives every love that didn't last
And sweet dreams can start to fade real fast
Inside a memory from the past

Is a real sad place to hang around
Inside the pocket of a clown

Literally, I'm just getting home from a Dwight Yoakam performance.  Concert was good.  He played all his hits and made tributes to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens.

Joke is on you! (not you) the music industry. I'll never forget one afternoon when this finally got onto fm radio.. I was in my garage.. Dwight's first big song went viral on my country station in lower central PA (lanco) how they mocked him... said it was strange country music! 

  Little did they know he was doing Bucks Owens, Johnny, the Possum, Texas Tornadoes -- all at ONCE!!
