Mamas Dont Let Your Babies

Waylon Jennings

 DG
        Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
 AD
        They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold
 G
        Lonestar belt buckles and old faded Levi's and each night begins a new day
 A
        If you don't understand him and he don't die young
 D
        He'll probably just ride away
Chorus:
 DG
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
 A
        Don't let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
 D
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and such
 G
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
 A
        They'll never stay home and they're always alone
 D
        Even with someone they love
Verse 2:(A tone higher)
 EA
        Cowboys like smokey ol' pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
 BE
        Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night
Them that don't know him won't like him
 A
        And them that do sometimes won't know how to take him
 B
        He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him
 E
        Do the things that make you think he's right
Chorus bis:
 EA
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
 B
        Don't let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
 E
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and such
 A
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
 B
        They'll never stay home and they're always alone
 E
        Even with someone they love
