Where Is The Glory
(Chris LeDoux)

When I was a lad an old cowboy told me
"Well son, you're sure ridin' well
There's fame and there's fortune
An' glory 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

CHORUS
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 cowboy's."
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 a 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

CHORUS X 2
