​Rusty Spurs

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

Album Intro
This road that I've chosen
It's a road that few have traveled
But there's good times with the hard times along the way

And this life that I'm livin'
God knows that I love it
And I like to share it with you if I may

So I write my songs of life as I know it
And I sing them for everyone to hear
And in my songs I hope you understand just a little
What it's like to be a rodeo man

Rusty Spurs
Rusty spurs a-hangin' from a nail their on the wall
Cold winds a-blowin' and the snow begins to fall
Old man a-dreamin' in his rockin' chair
Thinkin' 'bout the days gone by, wishin' he was there

He used to rodeo and ride 'em mighty fine
Now he's old and crippled, but he rides on in his mind
And I can tell, rodeo, you're doin' the same to me
I feel like I'm fifty, but I'm only twenty-three

Rodeo, you take a boy and make a man so tall
Drink his youth and cast him by the way
What's he gonna do now that he's through
But sit and dream about the good old days

Old picture album he keeps there by his side
Holds cherised mem'ries of broncs he used to ride
He thinks about his old friends and where they are today
Are they still living, or have they passed away

Rodeo, you take a boy and make a man so tall
Drink his youth and cast him by the way
What's he gonna do now that he's through
But sit and dream about the good old days

Rodeo, you take a boy and make a man so tall
Drink his youth and cast him by the way
What's he gonna do now that he's through
But sit and dream about the good old days
