Idaho Cowboy  Reckless Kelly

Idaho cowboy
Performed by: Reckless Kelly
Intro DCGD
[D]Way up on a mountain, the[C]re ain't nobody countin', [G]exactly when a cowboy's gonna
When you here the thunder, [C]their ain't no need to wonder, [G]he's saddled-up and
headed for the [D]sky,
[G]Cuz he's an Idaho cowboy, [D]no Tennessee plow boy, [A]he's wild as the Rockies he rides,
[G]A cougar in the canyon, [D]the devil's own companion, [A]ridin' with a fire in his eyes[D]‚?¶
Mothers on a hillside, he's coming in a landslide,
Lock the door and look out down below,
I know you think you taught, but you better hide your daughter
I guarantee something's gonna blow...
Solo (fiddle/steel guitar)
Some night's you might see him, him sittin' on the lead rims
silhouetted there against the moon, Howlin' like a coyote
hittin' every high note, tellin' you he'll be returnin' soon‚?¶
Chorus x2
-Words Mothers in the 2nd verse and lead in the 3rd are possibly incorrect,
I couldn't discern exactly what Willy was saying, if you know add it in the comments section. Enjoy.
- leave the b string alone when you hit the A chord; sounds better to me
