Mamas Dont Let Your Babies  Waylon Jennings

      [D]  Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to h[G]old
        They'd r[A]ather give you a song than diamonds or g[D]old
        Lonestar belt buckles and old faded Levi's and each n[G]ight begins a new day
        If you d[A]on't understand him and he don't die young
        He'll probably just ride aw[D]ay
Chorus:
        M[D]amas don't let your babies grow up to be c[G]owboys
        Don't l[A]et them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and s[D]uch
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be c[G]owboys
        They'll n[A]ever stay home and they're always alone
        Even with someone they l[D]ove
Verse 2:(A tone higher)
      [E]  Cowboys like smokey ol' pool rooms and clear mountain m[A]ornings
        L[B]ittle warm puppies and children and girls of the n[E]ight
Them that don't know him won't like him
        And them that do s[A]ometimes won't know how to take him
        He a[B]in't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him
        Do the things that make you think he's r[E]ight
Chorus bis:
        M[E]amas don't let your babies grow up to be c[A]owboys
        Don't l[B]et them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and s[E]uch
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be c[A]owboys
        They'll n[B]ever stay home and they're always alone
        Even with someone they l[E]ove
