Subject: Pair of Cowboy Boots - urgent search

Somebody out there must be able to help me with this. A favorite song when I was a youngster back in 1955. I can't remember exact title but I think it was "in a Pair of Cowboy Boots" Some of the lyrics are: I'm a gonna get there if I have to crawl In a pair of cowboy boots Get in the movies and that ain't all In a pair of cowboy boots I'm gonna get me a leather vest A gun on my hip and a star on my chest Well, I'll be the terror of the golden west In a pair of cowboy boots

Any help with the rest of the lyrics, the artist and if this tune is still availabel anywhere would be greatly appreciated

I found these lyrics on the Internet and corrected them based on the recording at YouTube, (plus a dip into Wikipedia):


COWBOY BOOTS
Dave Dudley

1. Well, all of my life I been a-tryin' to save
  To get a pair of cowboy boots.
Sixteen years of my life I gave
  To get a pair of cowboy boots.
I wanna go where the money's free.
Hollywood is a-callin' me.
Oh, what a great big star I'll be
  In a pair of cowboy boots!

2. Well, I'm a-gonna get on a TV show
  In a pair of cowboy boots.
I'm a-gonna ride in a rodeo
  In a pair of cowboy boots.
Well, I wanna go where the bad men lurk.
I wanna get a job and go to work
Givin' lessons to that Stoney Burke
  In a pair of cowboy boots.

BRIDGE: Oh, give me a home
Where the swimmin' pools roam,
Where the money grows on trees,
And the gals all wanna be squeezed.

3. I'm a-gonna get there if I have to crawl
  In a pair of cowboy boots,
Get in the movies and that ain't all,
  In a pair of cowboy boots.
I'm gonna get me a leather vest,
A gun on my hip and a star on my chest.
I'll be the terror of the golden west
  In a pair of cowboy boots.

REPEAT BRIDGE AND VERSE 3

In a pair of cowboy boots,
In a pair of cowboy boots,
In a pair of cowboy boots... [Fade]
