The Last Cowboy Song  The Highwaymen


************ THE LAST COWBOY SONG ************
performed by Waylon Jennings
Kris Kristofferson
Johnny Cash
Willie Nelson
Chorus (all together):
Thi[D]s is the last cowboy song
The end of a hundred year wa[G]ltz
The vo[A]ices sound sad as they're singing along
Another piece of America is l[D]ost
Verse 1:(Waylon Jennings)
He r[D]ides the feed lots,works in a market
On weekend selling tobacco and [A]beer
He dreams of tommorrow surrounded by fences
But he'll dream tonight of when fences weren't h[D]ere
Verse 2:(Kris Kristofferson)
He [D]blazed the trail with Lewis and Clark
And eyeball to eyeball old Wyatt backed d[A]own
He stood shoulder to shoulder with Travis in Texas
And rode with the Seventh when Custer went d[D]own
Verse 3:(Willie Nelson)
Rem[D]ington showed us how he looked on canvas
And Louis Lamour told us his t[A]ale
Me and Johnny and Waylon and Kris sing about him
And wish to God we could have ridden his tr[D]ail
Verse 4:(spoken-Johnny Cash) and the three others sing the chorus.
The[D] old chisom trail is covered in concrete
They truck it to market in fifty foot r[G]igs
The[A]y roll by his graveside and don't even notice
Like living and dieing was all he ever [D]did
Thanks to David M. Potter for the lyrics.
