Ten Seconds In The Saddle by Chris LeDoux Guitar Chords

D                         G            D
His Stetson was faded and battered and worn
    G              D
The stubble of his beard showed flecks of gray
    G                        D            Bm
His limp was severe ?cause a leg had been torn
     E                   A
By a bronc, in his rodeo days
   D                              G         D
He hung round the chutes while we waited to mount
       G             D
With a vague look of longing in his eyes
   G                        D            Bm
He spoke very few words but he made ''em count
       D            A           D
He was broken, for- -gotten but wise

[Chorus]
        Bm                           D            Bm
He said life''s is just like ridin'' broncs its a battle
        G                             A
Then he rolled a cigarette with shaky hands
        G                    D              Bm
See son I''d gladly take ten seconds in the saddle
      G           A                 D
For a lifetime of watching from the stands

Instrumental: Same as at the start

D                       G            D
I noticed the cigarette burns on his vest
        G             D
And the remnants of a dream left in his eyes
    G                            D             Bm
The boys said that he could have well been the best
        E                         A
Had not fate, cheated him, of his prize
       D                        G          D
Ah but I learned a lesson, that I''d never known
      G                   D          Bm
It''s better to ride even if you get throwed
        D             A           D
Than to wind up, just wishing you had

Chorus
        Bm                           D            Bm
He said life''s is just like ridin'' broncs its a battle
        G                             A
Then he rolled a cigarette with shaky hands
        G                    D              Bm
See son I''d gladly take ten seconds in the saddle
      G           A                 D
For a lifetime of watching from the stands
