Should Have Been A Cowboy

Toby Keith

     I bet you've never heard ole Marshall Dillion say
     Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
     Settling down will you marry me
     If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please
     She'd of said Yes in a New York minute
     They never tied the knot
     His heart wasn't in it
     Stole a kiss as he road away
     He never hung his hat up at Kitty's place 
G | D | C |D
I should've been a Cowboy
D G | D | C |D
I should'be learned to rope and ride
     wearing my six-shooter riding by pony
G | D | C |D
on a cattle drive
D G | D | C |D
Stealing the young girl's hearts
D G | D | C |D
Just like Gene and Roy
D G | D | C |D
Singing those campfire songs
G | D | C
I should've been a cowboy
Verse 2
I might of had a side kick with a funny name
running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James
Ending up on the brink of danger
Riding shotgun for the Texas Rangers
Go west yound man, haven't you been told
California's full of whisky, women and gold
Sleeping out all night beneath the Texas stars
Dream in my eye and a prayer in my heart
