Well I'm r[E]idin' along[G#13]
[A13]Singin' the same ol' c[E]owboy so[Gm7]ng[F#m7]
That's been sung a hundred times bef[E]ore
Ain't got nothin' but my n[G13]ame
And [A13]I'm the only man I k[E]now to bla[Gm7]me
But I'm l[F#m7]ivin' I'm h[B9]appy and I'm fre[E]e
Just listen to the [F#m7]wind blow
Let it [G#m7]blow let it blow[Gm7] [F#m7]
Sand over my tra[E]il
I got my [F#m7]saddle on the ground
And that [G#m7]ol' moon he can still be found[Gm7] [F#m7]
Hidin' in the desert s[B7]ky
I like simple th[E]ings in life
Like a p[G#13]rairie breeze
A [A13]good stout horse betw[E]een my kne[Gm7]es[F#m7]
Just bein' alone just bein' m[E]e
And when I die let me die
With a dr[G#13]eam in my mind
A s[A13]mile on my face and no tr[E]ouble behi[Gm7]nd
And no cross [F#m7]on my grave
To sh[B9]ow my restin' pl[E]ace
So I can listen to the [F#m7]wind blow
Let it [G#m7]blow let it blow[Gm7] [F#m7]
Sand over my tra[E]il
I got my s[F#m7]addle on the ground
And that[G#m7] ol' moon he can still be found[Gm7] [F#m7]
Hidin' in the desert sk[B7]y
Won't you [F#m7]bury me with my ch[B9]aps on
And my s[E]ix-gun strapped to my [F#m7]side
So I can watch the moon a-[F#m7]hidin'
In the d[B9]esert sk[E]y
[F#m7]Hidin' in the d[B9]esert sk[E]y
[F#m7]Hidin' in the d[B9]esert sk[E]y
[F#m7]Hidin' in the d[B9]esert sk[G6/9]y[F#6/9] [F6/9] [E6/9]
