"This Cowboy's Hat"
Lee Kernaghan
Finger pick the chords...
[Am]Well I was sitting in a [E]roadhouse [G]havin' a cup to pass the time[Am]
[Am]Swapping rodeo [E]stories with a f[G]ew old territory friends of mine[Am]
[Am]When some motorcycle [C]riders started [Dm]snickering in the back
[Am]They were pokin' fun[E] at my friends hat[Am]
[Am]Well one old boy said [E]'Hey Tex where'd you [G]park your horse'[Am]
[Am]My friend just turned his [E]hat down low but [G]they couldn't be ignored[Am]
[Am]Then one husky fella said '[C]I think I'll rip that [Dm]hat right off your head'
[Am]That's when my friend [E]turned 'round and this is what he said[Am]
You'll [Am]ride a black tor[C]nado [Dm]across the western sky
You'll [Am]rope an old blue [C]norther and [E]milk it 'til it's dry
Bull[Am]dog the Diaman[C]tina [Dm]pin its ears down flat
[Am]Long before you [E]take this cowboy's [Am]hat
[Am]Now this old [E]hat is [G]better left alone[Am]
[Am]You see it used to be my [E]father's but [G]last year he passed on[Am]
[Am]My Uncle skinned the [C]red belly black that [Dm]makes up this ol' hat band
[Am]But back in '6[E]9 he was killed in Viet[Am]nam
[Am]Now the eagle feather was [E]given to me by an [G]old aboriginal friend of mine[Am]
[Am]But someone run him [E]down somewhere up around that [G]Nothern Territory line[Am]
[Am]And a real special [C]lady gave me this hat pin[Dm]
[Am]But I don't know if I'm [E]ever going to see her a[Am]gain
[Am]Now if your leather jacket[E] means to you what this old [G]hat means to me[Am]
[Am]Then I guess we under[E]stand each other and [G]we'll just let it be[Am]
[Am]But if you still think it's [C]funny then you've [Dm]got my back up against the wall
[Am]And if you touch my [E]hat then you're gonna have to fight us [Am]all
[Am]Well right then and there [E]I noticed a little [G]sadness in the gang leader's eyes[Am]
[Am]He turned back toward the [E]others and they [G]all just shuffled on outside[Am]
[Am]But when my friend turned [C]back towards me I no[Dm]ticed his hat brim
Well it was [Am]turned up in a [E]big old Territory [Am]grin
