Cowboy Pride
[B]Well, I'm wr[B7]iting you this l[E]etter
and it's a long time ove[B]rdue
You're thinkin' "Just mind your own b[F#7]usiness"
I wouldn't blame you if you [B]do
You know our [B7]range is gettin' s[E]maller
Hear you're all busted up [B]inside
But it ain't the Broncos that'll [F#7]kill you
It's just that damned old cowboy [B]pride
Cowboy [B7]pride can always g[E]et a man through
but cowboy pride will make a [B]fool of you
Good women are [F#7]hard to find
I'm talkin' about the [B]faithful kind
I hear you're r[B7]unning with that w[E]aitress
and she's under age and w[B]ild
You know your wife's the best there [F#7]is, fella
Would you move in with that c[B]hild?
She stuck w[B7]ith you through the [E]hard times
Think of all the nights she [B]cried
Will she be another [F#7]victim
of that same old cowboy [B]pride
(Change to Key of C)
[C]Guess it's t[C7]ime to close my l[F]etter
It's just somethin' that I had to [C]do
You know I made the same mi[G7]stake once
before she fell in love with [C]you
So go home [C7]to your wife and f[F]amily
It's time to put the past as[C]ide
So you don't end up like [G7]me now
Nothin' left but cowboy [C]pride
Cowboy prid[C7]e can always get[F] a man through
but cowboy pride will make a [C]fool of you
Good women are [G7]hard to find
I'm talkin' about the f[C]aithful kind
Don't end up like [G7]me now
with nothin' left but cowboy p[C]ride
