Texas in 1880  Radney Foster

Intro Riff:
 D -------------------------(2)---------------
 A ------------0-2----3-2-0-(2)----------0-2---
 E -3-3--7p5-3-----3-------3-0*--7p5-3-------3-

*here he presses on the body with his right and bends the neck a bit.
(Single strum on electric):
Em E -0-2-3 -> G
I can hear the wind whisper my name
[G]Tellin’ me it’s time to head out again
My [D]horses are trailered and the lights are shutdown
 A -3-2-0-------
 C E --------3-0-- 

I’m long overdue for headin’ outta town
Em E -0-2-3
Gotta fever that they call the rodeo
[G]Just enough winners and make the next show
Some[D]times you make eight sometimes you hit dirt
Go on [C]pin another number to the back of my shirt
Chorus; hammer on bass note to get right sound (2x on C)
And I’ll [G]ride that [D]pony [C]fast
Like a [G]cowboy [D]from the [C]past
Be [G]young and [D]wild and [C]free
Like [G]Texas in [D]18[C]80
Just like [G]Texas in [D]1880
 D -------------------------(2)-----------------
 A ------------0-2----3-2-0-(2)----------0-2---
 E -3-3--7p5-3-----3-------3-0*--7p5-3-------3-

(quick thing after this I haven't quite figured out; this is only my guess:)
 G -5s7-----------
 D -5s7-5-7p5-----
 A -----------7-5- -> Em (can play this Em if easier: 075000)
 E ---------------

Em E -0-2-3
Awe, from Phoenix to Tulsa to the Astro Dome
From [G]New York City down to San Antone
There’s [D]boys that are ridin’ for legendary fame
 A -3-2-0-------
 C E --------3-0-- 

And our money’s all gone but they still ride the same
Em E -0-2-3
Our hearts are getting’ broken and our heads are getting’ busted
[G]We’ll always believe in the things that we trusted
They’ll [D]be those nights when glory comes round
And we’ll [C]tip our hats and wave to the crowd
[D]Someday when you’re older someone’ll see
Em (neck bend)
That buckle hangin’ there on your belt
[C]Askin’ just how it felt
(Thanks to jeff.clifton for tabs)
