Lyrics
We sent the paper man in the early mornin?
The roustabouts barkers and clowns
They pitch the tent and wait for sundown
Listenin? to that lonesome sound

The paper man?s one note song

People came to get a laugh
And catch a falling tear
While the paper man stared at the bearded woman
They counted another year

They counted another year

chorus

Of life on the road in a travelin? circus
Ridin? that sawdust trail
Singin? songs about the life and times
Leavin? a sawdust trail

The show would end the tent would fall
And the clowns would all go to bed
Sleep ?till the sound of a different day
Dawns in the paper man?s head

And I can still hear him sing

chorus

bridge
In the year of ?38 the show went on without fail
Life was hard but you made your choice
Ridin? that sawdust trail

repeat 3rd verse
chorus
