Rusty Spurr is a figment of my imagination(or vice-a-versa)
The Dusty Chaps Band consists of me, myself & I and hired hands kind enough to help me out with their talent on my demos.
The first 2 verse's were actually just a poem I wrote circa 1971.  A friend liked it a lot and put music to it and added some lyrics as a bridge. He then recorded it with a mutual friend of ours, circa 1972-73. Due to old age I don't remember him doing this.  I got a CD in the mail 2 weeks ago with the original recording on it. Bob Richardson played rhythm guitar and did the vocal.  Our mutual friend, Richard Smith played back up guitar and the solo.  Had to upload this, couldn't help myself.

The Morning Sun (c) 1972 Jim Durall/ Bob Richardson
When the wind is cold and on the run
And mother has no milk to feed her sun
And all the world of nature is undone
Then let's all say that we belong
In the light of the morning sun
The morning sun
When the light is dim and on the wane
And children see our blindness still remains
And all the world of joy is lost in pain
Then lets all say that in the rain
All our fear, all our pain's the same
All the same
Every time you look up at the sky above you
Every time you look into the eyes before you
Every time you think about the world around you
You know it's time..........., you know it's time
Repeat Bridge
Repeat V1
