My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys  Willie Nelson



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

VERSE 1
I [D]grew up dreaming of being a cowboy
And [G]loving the cowboy [D]ways.
P[D]ursuing the life of my high riding heroes
I [E7]  burned   up   my    childhood    [A7]days.
I [D]learned all the rules of a modern day drifter
Don't you [G]hold on to nothing too [D]long
Just [G]take what you need from the [D]ladies and [G]leave them
With the [D]words of a [A7]sad country [D]song.

CHORUS
My [G]heroes have always been [D]cowboys
[E7]And they still are it [A7]seems
[G]Sadly in search of and [D]one step in [G]back of
Them[D]selves and their [A7]slow moving [D]dreams.

VERSE 2
C[D]owboys are special with their own brand of misery
From b[G]eing alone too [D]long.
Y[D]ou could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Know[E7]ing well that your best days are [A7]gone
Pick[D]ing up hookers instead of my pen
I [G]let the words of my youth fade [D]away.
Old [G]worn out saddles and [D]old worm out [G]memories
With [D]no one and [A7]no place to [D]stay.

CHORUS
My [G]heroes have always been [D]cowboys
[E7]And they still are it [A7]seems
[G]Sadly in search of and [D]one step in [G]back of
Them[D]selves and their [A7]slow moving [D]dreams.

OTTRO
[G]Sadly in search of and [D]one step in [G]back of
Them[D]selves and their [A7]slow moving [D]dreams.

This song is in 3/4 time. It sounds best if you hit the bass note of the
chord on the first beat of each measure. You might want to put in some bass
runs like A-B-C#-D between A and D chords where it sounds right.


If you want to talk country guitar with me, or if my notation makes no
sense
