Thank The Cowboy For The Ride

By Chris Ledoux

Written By Paul Richey, Ed Bruce

C F

Well he was pushing seven, she was barely five

G C

He rode up on his broomstick horse and said, you wanna ride?

C F Dm

His boots made a funny sound 'cause they were his daddy's size

G C

His hat keep slippin' down below his eyes

F G C

And they rode off in the sunset down the sidewalk

F G C

She laughed at him every time that he talked

F G C F

His two front teeth were missin' but he had the cutest smile

G C

She thanked the cowboy for the ride

C F

Well he was seventeen the next time he rode up

G C

She'd never seen inside a pickup truck

C F Dm

Well, he was tall and handsome, smiling cuter than before

G F

He'd grown up to fit them boots he wore

F G C

And they rode off in the sunset down the highway

F G C

They took their time gettin' home the back way

F G C F

Later on in the front porch swing he pulled her by his side

G C

She thanked the cowboy for the ride

Well he loved her since a child, she'd always felt the same

So they settled down and hitched their dreams together

And they raised two broomstick cowboys and one little cowboy girl

To know God makes the sunsets of the world

Key Change to D

D G

Well he's almost sixty-seven, and she'll admit to fourty-nine

A D

He still loves her like a child, and she still feels the same

D G Em

Well he smiles a little slower at the twinkle in her eye

A D

They still saddle up from time to time

G A D

And they ride off in the sunset in the evening

G A D

Stars as bright as if they'd never seen them

G A D G

She never fails to say it before they go to sleep each night

A G D

Well, I love you cowboy, thank you for the ride

G A D

Well, I love you cowboy, thank you for the ride
