Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cowboy Song   Joe Purdy



capo 3rd fret its just c f and g the whole song listen to it to get the timing           
intro c hammer middle finger

c
Pick me up softly, I don't know the shape that I'm in
f
I dropped through the windows and down through the buildings
         g
And up to the front door again
c
There was a gunfight out in the moonlight

To settle the matters at hand
f
So pick me up stranger, pick me up softly
g                           c
I don't know the shape that I'm in

Chorus:
c
And I did my best with my time in the West
f
And I tried not to leave anyone in distress
g                          c
And I have stood tall yeah and I never lied
f
That's a lie
g
But I surely tried
c           f              g
To do everything I could do right


c
Pick me up softly, I don't know how much I've been hurt
f
One bullet missed me, the other one kissed me
g
And left me to die in the dirt
c
They killed every last man and shot down my Suzanne
f
It's over whatever it's worth
g
So pick me up stranger, pick me up softly
c                                         f g
I don't know how much I've been hurt

Repeat chorus
c
Pick me up softly, I don't know long I have left
f
Oh I am not hurtin', but death is a-certain
                    g
There's a bullet that lays in my chest
c
I'm flooded with memories and people and sweet dreams
f
And words to my favourite songs

And I'll buy the last round if you lay my head down
g
And sing one for me when I'm gone
