Heroes Always Been Cowboys  Waylon Jennings

[D]I grew[2] up a-[3]dreami[4]n' of bein' a cowboy
[G]Lovin' the cowboy [D]ways
Pursuin' the life of my high-ridin' heroes
I [E]burned up my [E7]childhood [A7]days
I [D]learned all the rules of the modern-day drifter
Don't you [G]hold onto nothin' too [D]long
Just [G]take what you need from the [D]ladies
Then [G]leave them the [D]words of a [A7]sad country [D]song
My [G]heroes have always been [D]cowboys
[E] And they [E7]still are, it [A7]seems
[G]Sadly in search of, [D]but one step in [G]back of
Them[D]selves and their [A7]slow-movin' [D]dreams
Verse 2:
Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From bein' alone too long
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Knowin' well your best days are gone
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen
I let the words of my years fade away
Old worn-out saddles, old worn-out memories
With no one and no place to stay
