The Cowboy's Song

Intro: C G F F C G C 

C                         
Pushin horns weren't easy  
         F               C 
like the movie says it was 
C 
I don't remember dance hall girls  
   G 
Or hotel rooms with rugs  
           C 
You worked hot and tired and nasty 
          F               C 
Rode your pony's head too low  
                        G 
And all them nights you couldn't sleep 
      F 
Cause it was too damn cold  
           C           G            C 
And we sing Strawberry Roan, Little Joe 
  
C 
Like the time we hit the river  
        F                C 
And the rain begun to fall  
C 
The water risin' so damn fast 
     G 
We thought it'd drown us all  
       C 
Now we lost a lot of steers that day  
    F                  C 
And four or five good mounts  
                           G 
But when all the boys rode into camp 
F 
We knew that's what counts  
            C             G             C 
And we sang, yippie ti yi yay, Amazing Grace 
  
C 
Or the night they broke behind us  
         F                C 
And they took us by surprise  
C 
I whistled out to Bonner  
          G 
I saw the terror in his eyes 
       C 
And he rode for all his horse would ride  
      F                 C 
And I know he done his best  
                     G 
But he crossed over Jordan 
       F 
Ridin' Dunny to his death  
            C                   G                     C 
And we sang, Bringing in the Sheaves and The Rugged Cross

D 
When you see the cowboy 
         G               D 
He's not ragged by his choice  
D 
And he never meant to bow them legs  
            A 
Or put that gravel in his voice  
      D 
Just chasin' what he really loves 
       G               D 
What's burnin' in his soul  
                     A                G 
Wishin' to hell that he'd been born a hundred years ago 
             D           A               D 
Still singin' Strawberry Roan and Little Joe 
                         A                  D 
still singin' Strawberry Roan... and Little Joe
