My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

----------------------------------

performed by Willie Nelson

A true classic

D

1. I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy

2. Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery

G D

1. And loving the cowboy ways.

2. From being alone too long.

D

1. Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes

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

E7 A7

1. I burned up my childhood days.

2. Knowing well that your best days are gone

D

1. I learned all the rules of a moder day drifter

2. Picking up hookers instead of my pen

G D

1. DonUt you hold on to nothing too long

2. I let the words of my youth fade away.

G D G

1. Just take what you need from the ladies and leave them

2. Old worn out saddles and old worm out memories

D A7 D

1. With the words of a sad country song.

2. With no one and no place to stay.

CHORUS

G D

My heroes have always been cowboys

E7 A7

And they still are it seems

G D G

Sadly in search of and one step in back of

D A7 D

Themselves and their slow moving 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 A-B-C#-D between A and D 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.
