Capo 1st fret

Standard (EADGBE)


Cowboys don't cry,

And heroes don't die.

Good always wins

Again and again.

And love is a sweet dream

That always comes true

Oh, if life were like the movies,

I'd never be blue.


But here in the real world,

It's not that easy at all,

Cause when hearts get broken,

It's real tears that fall.

And darlin', it's sad but true,

But the one thing I've learned from you,

Is how the boy don't always get the girl,

Here in the real world. /////

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.

(Repeat chorus then add this ending)

No, the boy don't always get the girl

Here in the real world.
