Cowboy Song  Joe Purdy

capo 3rd fret its just c f and g the whole song listen to it to get the timing
intro c hammer middle finger
[C]Pick me up softly, I don't know the shape that I'm in
[F]I dropped through the windows and down through the buildings
And up to[G] the front door again
[C]There was a gunfight out in the moonlight
To settle the matters at hand
[F]So pick me up stranger, pick me up softly
[G]I don't know the shape that [C]I'm in
[C]And I did my best with my time in the West
[F]And I tried not to leave anyone in distress
[G]And I have stood tall yeah [C]and I never lied
[F]That's a lie
[G]But I surely tried
[C]To do everyt[F]hing I could do[G] right
[C]Pick me up softly, I don't know how much I've been hurt
[F]One bullet missed me, the other one kissed me
[G]And left me to die in the dirt
[C]They killed every last man and shot down my Suzanne
[F]It's over whatever it's worth
[G]So pick me up stranger, pick me up softly
[C]I don't know how much I've been hurt[F] [G]
Repeat chorus
[C]Pick me up softly, I don't know long I have left
[F]Oh I am not hurtin', but death is a-certain
There's a bullet tha[G]t lays in my chest
[C]I'm flooded with memories and people and sweet dreams
[F]And words to my favourite songs
And I'll buy the last round if you lay my head down
[G]And sing one for me when I'm gone
Repeat chorus
