Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cowboy (for Reece)  Russell Lawson

[C]I've been drivin' cattle from [F]Denver to Chey[C]enne.
In [F]twenty years of [C]mud and dust, [G]I've become a [G7]man.
But[C] lately I've been longin'
for a [F]town in Arkan[C]sas
that [F]I left twenty [C]years ago,
but I'd [G]never left be[C]fore.
[C]I'm gonna [G]go back home where the [F]wheat fields are [C]blowin'.
I'm gonna [G]go back home where the [F]sparklin' rivers [C]flow.
gonna [G]go back home where [F]life is free and [C]easy.
[F]spend all my [C]time with a [G7]prarie girl I [C]know.
[C]My spurs are dull and rusted; my [F]saddle's stiff and [F]worn.
My [F]heart is close to [C]breakin' with the [G]weight that it has [G7]borne.
But the [C]herd must keep a movin'
and [F]I must keep [C]alive,
Though the [F]only lastin' [C]friend I have's
this [G]six shot forty-[C]five.
instrumental one refrain
[C]I know the years have changed me. God [F]knows, they've changed us [C]all.
But [F]I can still re[C]member a[G] lover in the [G7]fall.
And, as [C]long as I am ridin' the [F]prairie in the [C]rain,
I'[F]ll think of going [C]back to [G]Arkansas [C]again.
[C]I'm gonna [G]go back home where the [F]wheat fields are [C]blowin'.
I'm gonna [G]go back home where the [F]sparklin' rivers [C]flow.
gonna [G]go back home where [F]life is free and [C]easy.
[F]spend all my [C]time with a [G7]prarie girl I [C]know.
