What Am I Doing Here  Michael Martin Murphey

as performed by Michael Martin Murphy on Cowboy Songs I album
notated by Greg Vaughn (
1: [E]Starin' at the [E/G#]south end of [A]north bound [E]cattle
Slavin' in the [C#m]saddle all [B]day
You've [E]got to be [E/G#]some kind of [A]natural born [F#]fool
To [E/B]want to live your [B]life [A]this [E]way[B]
2: Well it can't be the cooking, it sure ain't the money
The devil made the horse that I ride
The days are too long and the nights are too short
And the boss ain't never satisfied
So [E]what am I [E/G#]doing [A]here [E]Lord, what am I [C#m]doing [F#m]here[B]
There's [E]got to be [E/G#]something [A]better up [F#]there
So [E/B]what am I [A]doing [E]here
[C#m]Sometimes I wonder in the [G#m]lightning and the thunder
If a [A]cowboy's even [B]got a [E]prayer[G#7]
And [C#m]why'd you have to make it so [G#m]hard down here
When [F#7]things are so much better up [B]there
3: Now the Lord called his angels all around the throne
Said boys I must be wastin' my time
'Cause I thought I gave the cowboy a pretty good life
Now he's complaining 'till the day he dies
repeat chorus twice
