Intro G C 2x

Verse 1:

G

She was holding her breath

C

As he attempted a prayer

Asus

And he was cussing the dust

D

Rising up in the air

G C Asus

Cause the old cattle trail well it weren’t anyway

D Asus

For a baby to draw its first breath

Verse 2:

G

And the unbroken west

C

Well it was no place to live

Asus

Cause it was hard to survive

D

And it was hell if you did

G C Asus

So he entered this world with a pair of clinched fist

D Asus

And the first and last tears he shed

Chorus 1

Asus D G

And the long horns mowed him a welcome

Asus D C

As a new voice cried from the buckboard

C G

And the Irish they sang sad and lonely

C Asus Dsus

Cause they knew a cowboy was born

Verse 3:

G

Well the prairie closed in

C

And a century past

Asus

The settlers plowed under

D

The tall prairie grass

G C Asus

And the cow towns died off in a world changing fast

D Asus

But the wind kept the spirit alive

Verse 4:

G

Cause a young boy in Kansas

C

He Caught a breeze one day

Asus

And in a five second rush

D

he was fightin for eight

G C Asus

He saw it all so clear through the dirt on his face

D Asus

He knew hen was born to ride

Chorus2

Asus D G

And the long lost heir to the saddle

Asus D C

Finally found his way back home

C G

As he picked up his hat Well the crowed cheered

C Asus Dsus

Cause they knew a cowboy was born

G Asus G

Yeah that day a cowboy was born

Solo G C G C

Bridge:

Asus D G

From the heroes in the bright lights of Vegas

Asus D C

To the poets of the sage and thorn

C Asus Dsus

A proud legacy of a nation

C Asus D

Thank god the cowboy was born

C Asus G

Yea thank god a cowboy was born
