Cowgirls Don't Cry (From the album "Cowboy Town") As Performed By: Brooks & Dunn -------------------------------------- Tuning: Standard - 440 Concert Pitch As usual there are two guitars in this song, one electric and one acoustic. And while I'm fairly certain that the acoustic is playing the Dsus2, the electric may be doubling him with a straight D chord. If you play this on one guitar you can try alternating between the Dsus2 and the D with a quick hammer on. Varies the sound a bit and isn't so monotonous. Key: / = slide up \ = slide down b = bend (whole step) b^ = bend (1/2 step) b^^ = bend (1 1/2 steps) pb = pre-bend r = release-bend t^ = tap with righthand finger h = hammer-on p = pull-off ~ = Vibrato * = Natural Harmonic #(#) = Trill ** = Artificial Harmonic x = Dead notes (no pitch) P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes) (\) = Dive w\bar (/) = Release w\bar Tp = Tap w\plectrum Intro Chords: Dsus2-A-Dsus2-A Verse 1: Dsus2 A Her daddy gave her, her first pony. Then taught her to ride. Dsus2 A She climbed high in that saddle. Fell I don't know how many times. F#m E D E He taught her a lesson that she learned. Maybe a little too well. Chrous: Dsus2 A Cowgirls don't cry. Ride, baby, ride. Dsus2 Lessons in life are going to show you in time. A Soon enough, your gonna know why. F#m E It's gonna hurt every now and then.

A Dsus2-A-Dsus2-A Cowgirls don't cry. Verse 3: Dsus2 A Phone rang early one morning. Her momma's voice, she'd been crying. Dsus2 A Said it's your daddy, you need to come home. This is it, I think he's dying. F#m E D E She laid the phone down by his head. The last words that he said. Refrain: Dsus2 A Cowgirl don't cry. Ride, baby, ride.
