Chris Ledoux - My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys guitar chord

My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

By Chris Ledoux

D

I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy

G D

And lovin' the cowboy ways

D

Pursuin' the life of my high ridin' heroes

E7 A

I burned up my childhood days

D

I learned all the rules of the modern day drifter

G D

Don't you hold onto nothin' too long

G D

Just take what you need from the ladies

Bm D A D

Then leave them the words of a sad country song

Chorus:

G D

My heroes have always been cowboys

E7 A

And they still are it seems

G D G

Sadly in search of, but one step in back of

D A D

Themselves and their slow movin' dreams

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery

From bein' alone too long

You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare

Knowin' well your best days are gone

Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen

I let the words of my youth fade away

Old worn-out saddles, old worn-out memories

With no one and no place to stay

Chorus
