Intro: Amaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Dmaj7
[Amaj7]In the corner of a [Dmaj7]dark barroom
[Amaj7]Sat an old cowboy [Dmaj7]singing western tunes
[Amaj7]Singing songs that he [Dmaj7]learned as a child
[Amaj7]All about the West[Dmaj7] back when it was wil[Amaj7]d[Dmaj7]
[Amaj7]He said he came from [Dmaj7]down Texas way
The [Amaj7]cowboys were tough the [Dmaj7]women the same way
[Amaj7]Said he was a star[Dmaj7] back in '31
When [Amaj7]Hollywood liked him
For some [Dmaj7]songs that he had don[Amaj7]e[Dmaj7]
[Amaj7]He's the last of the [Dmaj7]singing [Amaj7]cowboys[Dmaj7]
[Dmaj7]Singing songs of d[Amaj7]esperation and joy
         [Bm]                [Amaj7]      [Dmaj7]            [Amaj7]                                                         

[Amaj7]He took a break just to [Dmaj7]chug him down some beer
[Amaj7]C'mon folks now holler out
The [Dmaj7]songs you'd like to hear
And[Amsj7] if I know one I [Dmaj7]know a million or two
[Amaj7]I'm not just up here playing for me
This is[Dmaj7] all done for yo[Amaj7]u[Dmaj7]
[Amaj7]And then he bragged of the s[Dmaj7]tetson hat that he wore
[Amaj7]Said it was the finest made [Dmaj7]since the war
[Amaj7]And I won this silver buckle [Dmaj7]ridin' on a cow
[Amaj7]As he laughed he said I[Dmaj7] bet you're wonderin' ho[Amaj7]w
'[Amaj7]Cause I'm the last of the [Dmaj7]singing [Amaj7]cowboys
[Dmaj7]Singing songs of [Amaj7]desperation and joy
         [Bm]                [Amaj7]      [Dmaj7]           [Amaj7]      [Dmaj7]                                                   

Break: Amaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Dmaj7
[Amaj7]And after three hours o[Dmaj7]r maybe more
[Amaj7]A lady grabbed his arm and [Dmaj7]showed him to the door
[Amaj7]The bartender said he's [Dmaj7]blind you see
[Amaj7]Don't tell him the only audience
He[Dmaj7] had was you and m[Amaj7]e
'[Amaj7]Cause he's the last of the [Dmaj7]singing [Amaj7]cowboys
[Dmaj7]Singing songs of [Amaj7]desperation and joy
         [Bm]                [Amaj7]      [Dmaj7]           [Amaj7]      [Dmaj7]
