1D. I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy 2. Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery 1G. And loving the coDwboy ways. 2. From being alone too long. 1D. Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes 2. You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare 1E7. I burned up my childhood A7 days. 2. Knowing well that your best days are gone 1D. I learned all the rules of a moder day drifter 2. Picking up hookers instead of my pen 1G. DonUt you hold on to nDothing too long 2. I let the words of my youth fade away. 1G. Just take what you need froDm the ladies aGnd leave them 2. Old worn out saddles and old worm out memories 1D. With the wA7ords of a sadD country song. 2. With no one and no place to stay.Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
ChorusMGy heroes have always beenD cowboys AE7nd they still are it seA7ems SGadly in search of and onDe step in bacGk of TDhemselves and theiA7r slow movingD dreams. This song is in 3/4 time. It sounds best if you hit the bass note of the chord on the first beat of each measure. You might want to put in some bass runs like
AD chords where it sounds right. If you want to talk country guitar with me, or if my notation makes no sense feel free to e-mail me.
