I am not real sure about these chords. I have messed with this song for
countless hours, and just happen to run across the closest sounding
thing yet one night. I thought I saw Alan play this with a capo one
time so I tried it.
Capo 1st fret
Cowboys don't cry,[G] [A]
And heroes don't die.[D]
And good always wins[G] [A]
Again and again.[D]
And love is a sweet [G]dream[A]
That a[A7]lways comes true[D]
Oh, if life were like the [G]movies,[A]
I'd ne[A7]ver be blue.[D] [G] [D]
But her[D7]e in the real w[G]orld,
It's not that easy at all,[D]
'Cause when hearts get broken,[A7]
It's real tears that fall.[D]
And da[D7]rlin', it's sad[G] but true,
But the one thing I've learned from[D] you,
Is how the boy don't always ge[Em]t the girl,[G]
[A7]Here in the real[G] world.[D] [G] [A] [D] [G] [D]
I gave you my love,
But that wasn't enough,
To hold your heart
When times got tough.
And tonight on that silver screen,
It'll end like it should,
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would.
At the end of second chorus play D-A7-D to wrap it up.
"The closest thing to heaven, on earth, is to be loved by a woman"
