Mamas Dont Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys  Waylon Jennings



      [D]Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to h[G]old
        [A7]They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or [D]gold
        Lonestar belt buckles and old faded Levi's and [G]each night begins a new day
        If you [A7]don't understand him and he don't die young
        He'll probably just ride a [D]way
Chorus:
        [D]Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be [G]cowboys
        Don't [A7]let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
        Let them be doctors and lawyers and [D]such
        [D]Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be [G]cowboys
        They'll [A7]never stay home and they're always alone
        Even with someone they [D]love

Verse 2:
      [D]Cowboys like smokey ol' pool rooms and clear mountain [G]mornings
        [A7]little warm puppies and children and girls of the [D]night
        [D]Them that don't know him won't like him
        And them that do [G]sometimes won't know how to take him
        He ain't [A7]wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him
        Do things that make you think he's [D]right

Chorus:
        [D]Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be [G]cowboys
        Don't [A7]let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
        Let them be doctors and lawyers and [D]such
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be [G]cowboys
        They'll [A7]never stay home and they're always alone
        Even with someone they [D]love
