An / old cowboy went / riding out one / dark and windy / day, / /
       / Am               /                    / C                   / Am    / /
Up - / on a ridge he / rested as he / went along his / way,  / /
          / Am             /                       / F                        / Am
When / all at once a / mighty herd of / red-eyed cows he / saw,
Am                       / F                 / /        / F               / Am     / / /
Plowin' through the / ragged sky, / / and  / up a cloudy / draw,  / / /

Their / horns were black and / shiny and their / hot breath he could / feel, / /
   / Am                   /                               / F                              / Am
A / bolt of fear went / through him as they / thundered through the / sky,
          / Am                 / F                  / /           /                               /  Am / /
For he / saw the riders / coming hard, / / and he / heard their mournful / cry.  / /

   / /
Their / faces gaunt, their / eyes were blurred, their / shirts all soaked with / sweat, / /

I play this song using a G following the C in the first verse. If you pick out the notes there is a B in there. So by strumming the E,A,D and the G,B,E of the Am you are able to seperate the tone of the song to arrive with the B. Or not!

I use an E after the C in the second line and a G after F (instead of another F) on the fourth line. It's probably not how the song goes, but it should be.
