My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys  Chris LeDoux

My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
By Chris Ledoux
[D]I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy
[G]And lovin' the cowboy [D]ways
[D]Pursuin' the life of my high ridin' heroes
I [E7]burned up my childhood [A]days
I [D]learned all the rules of the modern day drifter
Don't you [G]hold onto nothin' too [D]long
Just [G]take what you need from the [D]ladies
Then [Bm]leave them the [D]words of a [A]sad country [D]song
My [G]heroes have always been [D]cowboys
[E7]And they still are it [A]seems
[G]Sadly in search of, but [D]one step in [G]back of
Them[D]selves and their [A]slow movin' [D]dreams
Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Knowin' well your best days are gone
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen
I let the words of my youth fade away
Old worn-out saddles, old worn-out memories
With no one and no place to stay
