Cowboy logic  Michael Martin Murphey

There's a [F]great American hero, [Bb]we all look up to
When the [C7]times are hard and the chips are down,
he knows just what to [F]do
Now a c[F]owboy's got a set of rules that he l[Bb]ives by day to day
If it's a fence, mend it.  If it's a [Bb]dollar bill, spend it
Be[C7]fore if burns a hole down in them [F]jeans[C7]
It it's a l[F]oad, truck it.  If it's a [Bb]punch, duck it.
If she's a l[C7]ady, treat her like a q[F]ueen
That's cowboy [Bb]logic, every cowboy's g[F]ot it
It's in the [C7]way he lives his life and the songs he [F]sings
That's cowboy [Bb]logic, every cowboy's [F]got it
He's got a [C7]simple solution to just about any[F]thing[F] [F#] [G]
If it's a j[G]ob, do it.  P[C]ut your back in to it.
'Cause a l[D7]ittle bit of dirt's gonna wash off in the r[G]ain[D7]
If it's a [G]horse, ride it.  If it h[C]urts, hide it.
D[D7]ust yourself off and get back on ag[G]ain.
That's cowboy l[C]ogic, every cowboy's g[G]ot it
It's in the [D7]way he lives his life and the songs he [G]sings
That's cowboy l[C]ogic, every cowboy's g[G]ot it
He's got a s[D7]imple solution to just about anyt[G]hing
An old cowboy and a young buckaroo were w[C]orkin', ridin' fence
The [D7]old hand was testin' the kid - on his skill and common [G]
sense
He said "[G]Son, if you seen three men in a pickup truck,
dressed a[C]like from boot to hat,
could you t[D7]ell which one was the real cowboy,
just from where he s[G]at?"
The kid scratched his head awhile and then he said
"Well, there ain't n[C]o way to know".
The o[D7]ld hand grinned and then he said
"Kid, you've still got a ways to [G]go.
The real cowboy's the one in the middle.
He ain't[C] there just by fate.
'Cause f[D7]irst he don't have to drive, and then
he don't have to mess with the [G]gate"
That's cowboy l[C]ogic, every cowboy's g[G]ot it
It's in the [D7]way he lives his life and the songs he s[G]ings
That's cowboy l[C]ogic, every cowboy's g[G]ot it
He's got a s[D7]imple solution to just about anyt[G]hing
He's got a s[D7]imple solution to just about anyt[G]hing
