Cowgirls Don't Cry  Brooks & Dunn

Cowgirls Don't Cry (From the album "Cowboy Town")
As Performed By: Brooks & Dunn

Tuning: Standard - 440 Concert Pitch
As usual there are two guitars in this song, one electric and one acoustic.
And while I'm fairly certain that the acoustic is playing the Dsus2, the
electric may be doubling him with a straight D chord. If you play this on
one guitar you can try alternating between the Dsus2 and the D with a quick
hammer on. Varies the sound a bit and isn't so monotonous.
