Hi Jim, I believe the song you are looking for could be "Everything That Glitters, (Isn't Gold.)"
It was written by Dan Seals and Bob McDill, and was on Dan's 1985 album WON'T BE BLUE ANYMORE.
I don't know if Colin Raye did a cover of this or not but, here are the lyrics, tell me what you think?
Best o'luck, Bob.


EVERYTHING THAT GLITTERS (ISN'T GOLD) / DAN SEALS

Saw your picture on a poster, in a cafe out in Phoenix
Guess you're still the sweet heart of the rodeo
As for me and little Casey, we still make the circuit
In a one horse trailer and a mobile home
And she still asks about you all the time
And I guess we never even cross your mind

But oh sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold

Well old Red he's getting older, and last Saturday he stumbled
But you know I just can't bear to let him go
Little Casey she's still growing and she's started asking questions
And there's certain things a man just doesn't know
Her birthday came and you never even called
I guess we never cross your mind at all

But then sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold

Everybody said you'd make it big someday
And I guess that we were only in your way
But someday I'm sure your gonna know the cost
Cause for everything you win there's something lost

But oh sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold.

        Hi Bob: Thank you very much for the information. As I have gotten older, I've reached the point where it is easier for me to forget than to remember. I am grateful to you for your time and effort. Jim
