Mamas babies be cowboys1  Willie Nelson

[D]Mama don't let y[G]our babies grow up to be cowboys
don't [A]let them pick guitars and drive in old trucks
make 'em [A7]be doct[D]ors and lawyers and such
[D]Mama don't let y[G]our babies grow up to be cowboys
they'll [A]never stay home and they're always alone
even [A7]with someon[D]e they love
[D]Cowboys ain't easy [G]to love and they're harder to hold
and [A]they'd rather give[A7] you a song [D]than diamonds or gold
[D]Lone Star belt buckles and old faded Levis and each night
begins a[G] new day
and if [A]you don't understand him and he don't die young
he'll prob[A7]ably just [D]ride away
Repeat chorus


[E]A cowboy loves smokey[A] old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
[B]little warm puppi[B7]es and ch[E]ildren and girls of the night
[E]Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do sometimes
won't know ho[A]w to take him
he's[B] not wrong he's just different and his pride won't let him
do things to[B7] mak[E]e you think he's right

Repeat chorus ad infinitum or something :-)
