When Cowboys Didnt Dance  Lonestar

--------------------------------------------------------------------



[Am]Seven hundred heads of cattle, an old forgotten[F] trail
[G]Six cowboys, one old man and another day of h[Am]ell
[Am](...) lagging behind from the strain o[F]f a broken wheel
[G]The only thing to look forward to is a campfire and [E]a meal
Am (repeat riff)
[Am]Sleeping 'neath an open sky, with just stars above th[F]eir heads
[G]I'd settle for a pillow and some sagebrush [Am]for a bed
[Am]Waking up tomorrow was merely done b[F]y chance
[G]Back when the west was wild and cowboys didn't da[E]nce
CHORUS: When cowboys didn[C]'t dance, didn't wear[G] designer shirts[Dm]
               And their hear[F]ts were filled with memories
               Their bo[E]dies filled with hurt
               They would sit ar[C]ound the campfire[G]
               And exchang[Dm]e a piercing glance
              [F]                      [E]        [Am]      Back when the west was wild and cowboys didn't dance.
Am (repeat riff)
[Am]Pour coffee from an old tin cup, more sweat upon th[F]e brow
[G]Another day of chasing that same old lo[Am]nely cow
[Am]And every new horizon began a bran[F]d new day
[G]Thirteen hundred miles to go, slowly made[E] their way
[Am]Across the plains of Texas through the Colorado snow[F]
[G]Final destination, Black[E]foot, Idaho
CHORUS
CHORUS
[Am]Seven hundred heads of cattle, an old forgotten[F] trail
[G]Five cowboys, one old man and another day of [Am]hell
SOLO (Chorus chord progression)
