It's All In The Movies Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

They were so much in love with life
Happy every way
But love the movie began with
Some how got lost in the play

Like a fire burning out of control
You got caught up in the actor's role
And you cried on my shoulder
When it came to an end

But that's all in the movies
It won't happen to you and I
That's all in the movies
So, baby, don't cry

It's all in the movies
It won't happen to us I know
That's all in the movies
Just a bad picture show
