About Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson was born in the small town of Newnan, Georgia, on October 17, 1958. He grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family, and as a teenager he performed locally as part of a country duo. He left school to work and married his high-school sweetheart, Denise, who worked as an airline stewardess. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista’s new country division. Jackson’s debut album, Here in the Real World, was issued in 1990 and became a platinum-selling hit on the strength of four Top Five hits: the title cut, “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” and the first of many chart-toppers, “I’d Love You All Over Again.” He shot to full-fledged superstardom with the follow-up, 1991’s Don’t Rock the Jukebox, whose title track was an inescapable number one smash that year.

Here In The Real World Lyrics

Cowboys don’t cry, and heroes don’t die
Good always wins, again and again
And love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, I’d never be blue

But here in the real world
It’s not that easy at all
‘Cause when hearts get broken
It’s real tears that fall
And darlin’ it’s sad but true
But the one thing I’ve learned from you
Is how the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world

I gave you my love, but that wasn’t enough
To hold your heart, when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen
It’ll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would

But here in the real world
It’s not that easy at all
‘Cause when hearts get broken
It’s real tears that fall
And darlin’ it’s sad but true
But the one thing I’ve learned from you
Is how the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world

No, the boy don’t always get the girl
Here in the real world
