Western Skies  Chris LeDoux

Verse 1
The [D]Nashville friends [A]think Iâm strange to[G] make my home out[D] on the range
Think itâs nothinâ but [A]a God forsake[G]n land[A]
[D]Why donât you bring your guitar and[A] family,[G] move on down to Te[D]nnesse
Well, I just smile because [A]they donât under[G]stand
But if they [G]ever saw a sunrise on a [A]mountain morninâ
[D]Watched those cotton [A]candy clouds roll [G]by
Theyâd know why I live be[A]neath these Western[D] Skies
Verse 2
I got peace of mind and elbow room I love the smell of sage in bloom
Catch a rainbow on my fishinâ line
We got county fairs and rodeos, ainât a better place for my kids to grow
Just turn ?em loose in the western summer time
And if you ever held your woman on a summerâs evening
While the prairie moon was blazinâ in her eyes
Youâd know why I live beneath these Western Skies
[Bm]You ainât lived until youâv[A]e watched those Norther[G]n Lights[A]
[Bm]Set around the campfire and hear the [A]coyotes call at [G]night
Makes you [A]feel alright
Verse 3
So guess Iâll stay right where Iâm at, wear my boots and my cowboy hat
But Iâll come and see ya once in a while
Iâll bring my guitar and sing my songs, sorry if I donât stay too long
I love Tennessee but ya know itâs just not my style
I gotta be where I can see those Rocky Mountains
Ride my horse and watch an eagle fly
I gotta live my life and write my songs beneath these Western Skies
When I die you can bury me beneath these Western Skies, Yippee Yi
