Mamas Babies Be Cowboys-crd Willie Nelson
1. [D]Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to [G]hold.
2. Cowboys like smoky old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
1. [A7]They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or [D]gold.
2. little warm puppies and children and girls of the night.
1. [D]Lone Star belt buckles and old faded Levis and
2. Them that don't know him won't like them and them that do
1. [G]each night begins a new day
2. sometimes won't know how to take him.
1. If you [A7]don't understand him and he don't die young
2. He ain't wrong he's just different but his pride won't let him

2. do things to make you think he's right.
[D]Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be Cow[G]boys
don't [A7]let'em pick guitars and drive'em old trucks
let'em be doctors and lawyers and [D]such.
Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be [G]Cowboys
cause the'll [A7]never stay home and they're always alone
even with someone they [D]love.
