Suppose to have been written by a Canadian. His name is "Bob Ruzika" Something like that.   And as I was told he is a Canadian.

"Bob Ruzicka was a singer, songwriter, and children's dentist from northern Alberta, who was familiar in the early 1970's not only for his records but for his appearances on Peter Gzowski's CBC radio show 'This Country In The Morning'. He had most recently appeared on a summer television series, 'Homemade Jam', before he graduated to his own show, 'Ruzicka', which produced in Edmonton. The show lasted from January to April 1972."

"Rodeo Red" written by Bob Ruzicka

Ride 'em cowboy, ride your broom across the bar room floor
Crazy drunk and hanging like a scarecrow in the door
Telling tales of all the broncs you've ridden in your time
Bummin' smokes and asking folks if they can spare a dime.

   chorus: Rodeo Red
        It's the kind of life you led
        That's made you old before your time
        Weathered skin and broken bones
        From all the times that you've been thrown
        Comin' down a little harder all the time.

Well, the stories told that years ago Old Red rode with the best
He was always in the money all across the great midwest
But he lost his nerve in Denver on the meanest mare that ever lived
If it's true a man can't lose them all, you could have fooled Old Red.

        repeat chorus.

Well, the big time dreams got lost between the women and the wine
Now he's bareback bar stool riding champ hanging on to closing time
Laying face down in the gutter, he thinks he's on the lone prairie
Saying, "Send my spurs to Mother. Let my horses all run free."

        repeat chorus.

Yes, he was from Edmonton. He doesn't live in California; he's in Vancouver/Victoria area. Although "Rodeo Red" isn't on the video list, many of his songs are on YouTube by Spitsy53.
