​Where Is the Glory

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Old Cowboy Heroes (1980).

When I was a lad an old cowboy told me
"Well son, you're sure ridin' well
There's fame and there's fortune and glory a-waitin'
At the end of the rodeo trail"
So I packed up my stuff in my old pick-up truck
To follow my rodeo dreams
Now I'm finally on the top but I feel like a flop
'Cause I've spent all the fortune I've seen

Now, where is the glory in drivin' all night
Down a highway that's headed to nowhere
What good's the fame when the fortune's all gone
And the dreams turned into a nightmare
Like Ed Bruce said
"Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys"
I'm inclined to agree, but if you ask me
You know I'd go through it again

Now, what does it take to be a rodeo cowboy
I guess I'm an expert at that
Takes a whole lot of guts and old lady luck
But not too much under this hat
Well, he thrives on the crowds yellin' real load
For him to face dyin' again
But the good Lord takes care of children and fools
He's no kid, so what's that make him

Where is the glory in drivin' all night
Down a highway that's headed to nowhere
What good's the fame when the fortune's all gone
And the dreams turned into a nightmare
Like Ed Bruce said
"Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys"
I'm inclined to agree, but if you ask me
You know I'd go through it again

Where is the glory in drivin' all night
Down a highway that's headed to nowhere
What good's the fame when the fortune's all gone
And the dreams turned into a nightmare
Like Ed Bruce said
"Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys"
I'm inclined to agree, but if you ask me
You know I'd go through it again
