Id Rather Be A Cowboy  John Denver

[D] - [G] - [D] x2
[D] Jesse went away last summer, a [G] couple of months [D] ago
After all our time together, it was [G] hard to see her [D] go
She called me right up when she arrived, asked me [G] one more time
to [D] come
Livinâ on an L.A. freeway, ainât my [G] kind of havinâ [D] fun

[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
[G] I think Iâd rather ride the [D] range
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
Than to [A] lay me down in [Asus] love and ladyâs [D] chains

[D] - [G] - [D] x2
[D] When we were just beginning, it was [G] such and easy [D] way
Layinâ back up in the mountains, singinâ [G] songs for sunny [D]
days
But she got tired of pickinâ daisies and [G] cookinâ my meals for [D]
me
She can live the life she wants to, yes, and [G] itâs all right with
[D] me

[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
[G] I think Iâd rather ride the [D] range
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
Than to [A] lay me down in [Asus] love and ladyâs [D] chains
[A] Iâd rather [Asus] live on the [G] side of a [D] mountain
Than [A] wander through [Asus] canyons of [G] concrete and [D] steel
[A] Iâd rather [Asus] laugh with the [G] rain and sun [D] shine
And [C] lay down my [G] sundown in [E7] some starry [A] field [Asus]
[A] [Asus] 

[D] Oh, but I miss her in the morninâ, [G] when I awake [D] alone
And the absence of her laughter is a [G] cold and empty [D] sound
But her memory always makes me smile [G] and I want you to [D] know
I love her, yes I love her [G] just enough to let her [D] go
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
[G] I think Iâd rather ride the [D] range
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
Than to [A] lay me down in [Asus] love and ladyâs [D] chains
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
[G] I think Iâd rather ride the [D] range
[G] I think Iâd rather be a [D] cowboy
Than to [A] lay me down in [Asus] love and ladyâs [D] chains
I hope you have fun with that one.
