​Born to Follow Rodeo

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Life as a Rodeo Man (1975).

Faded old blue wranglers, dusty cowboy hat
Pair of scuffed-up boots upon your feet
Can of pork and beans, that you opened with your knife
It ain't much but it's all you've got to eat
You think of what your daddy said if your money should run low
"Just call I'll send your busfare to come home"
But you're just to proud to take it and home won't be the same
Now you've had a taste of rodeo

You set out on the road to seek your boyhood dreams
To satisfy the hunger in your soul
You wouldn't turn back now even if you could
You were born to follow rodeo

All your money's gone 'cept a twenty dollar bill
But that's your fees to enter old Cheyenne
And all that's in your favor is you and your try
And a deep knawing desperate need to win
As you step out on the highway with your thumb up in the air
In your mind a promise has been made
If this way of life don't kill you
Or you don't starve to death
You swear you'll be the champion someday

You set out on the road to seek your boyhood dreams
To satisfy the hunger in your soul
You wouldn't turn back now even if you could
You were born to follow rodeo

Faded old blue wranglers, dusty cowboy hat
Pair of scuffed-up boots upon your feet
Can of pork and beans that you open with your knife
It ain't much but it's all you've got to eat...
