It is included on The Music of Nashville (Season 1, Volume 1).

Lyrics

She's a big top tent with bright spotlights
That woman sure knows how to shine
You almost can't believe your eyes
You can hardly wait to see the sign
She'll have you walking that high wire
Jumping through her rings of fire
Give you your moment in the sun
Be careful not to fall in love

Cause that curtain falls
The lights go out
The show goes on
She leaves town
If you know what's good for you
You'll just let her go
Or you'll end up next to me in her sideshow

I remember how that spotlight felt
When she wanted me and no one else
Nowadays I play my part
Pay a dime, you'll see my broken heart

That curtain falls
The lights go out
The show goes on
She leaves town
If you know what's good for you
You'll just let her go
Or you'll end up next to me in her sideshow

ooooooooo

And if you know what's good for you
You'll just let her go
Don't end up next to me in her sideshow
