The Cowboy Song  Garth Brooks

Intro: D A7 D
[D]Pushin' horns weren't ea[D/F#]sy like the movi[G]es said it was[D]
And I don't recall no dance hall girls or[A7sus4] hotel rooms with rugs[A7]
[D] [D/F#] [G] 
You wo[D]rked hot and tired and nasty rode you pony's head too low
There were all the nights you co[A7]uldn't sleep 'cause it[G] was too damn cold
And you'd sing, Str[D]awberry Roan and Little[A7] Joe
Verse 2
Like the time we hit the river and the rains began to fall
And the water was rising so damn fast we thought it'd drown us all
We lost a lot of steers that day and four or five good mounts
But when all the boys rode into camp we knew that's what counts
And we sang, Yippie Ti Yi Yay and Amazing Grace
[Bm] [F#m] [G] 
Or the night the [D]broke behind us and then they took us by surprise
[Bm] [F#m] [G] [Asus] 
I whi[A]stled out the Bonner I seen the terror in his eyes
And he rode [Dsus2]for all his horse would [D/F#]ride and I know he done his b[G]est
But he[D] crossed over Jordan ridin'[A7] Dunny to his deat[G]h
[D] [A7] 
And we s[D]ang, Bringin' in the Sheaves and the Rugged Cross
Instrumental Solo: D
Verse 3
So when you see that cowboy he's not ragged by his choice
He never meant to bow them legs or put that gravel in his voice
He's just chasin' what he really loves and what's burning in his soul
Wishin' to God that he'd been born and hundred years ago
Still singin', Strawberry Roan and Little Joe
Outro: D
