Intro:
C#5   E5   B5   F#5   x2   (soft)
C#5   E5   B5   F#5   x2   (electric)
C#5   E5   B5   F#5   x2   (electric w/ distortion)

Verse 1:
C#5     E5                  B5                    F#5
On that very first day, the Lord sat down and saw fit to say
              C#5     E5                   B5                F#5
"Let there be light!" so he could tell the day time from the night
C#5         E5           B5                 F#5
And then he spoke again, felt the wind come rolling in
          C#5  E5               B5    F#5
Smelt the rain, it soaked everything

Prechorus 1:
B5                                       B5
        And then the mountains rose up,      across the Great Plains
B5                                              G#5           
        And all the angels up in Heaven started singing,
        "All it's missing is a pretty thing"

Chorus:
             C#5                E5
Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
        B5             F#5        C#5
Make 'em strong as any man, Lordy
                    E5                   B5
Something you can't tame, she's a mustang
                     F#5
The heartbeat of the heartland
            C#5
She's got a drawl, ya'll,
      E5                    B5                   F#5    E-F#5  E-F#5
Yeah, she's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
E            C#5  E5     B5   F#5
Let there be cowgirls, come on

C#5   E5   B5   F#5

Verse 2:
C#5                E5       B5                         F#5
He made me back in '68, the first time I met her I was nearly eight
           C#5  E5                   B5     F#5
And she was ten, her name was little KayLynn
        C#5                      E5
She was born to a farmer who was friends with my father,
      B5                    F#5
I was in love with the sharecropper's only daughter
C#5             E5                 B5    F#5
Thought I was in, he made me think again

Prechorus 2:
B5                             B5
        But when I turned 16,      I thought it couldn't get worse
B5                                              G#5
        I saw her riding on a horse and fell in love so bad it hurt

Chorus:
             C#5                E5
Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
         B5            F#5       C#5
Make 'em strong as any man, Lordy
                    E5                   B5
Something you can't tame, she's a mustang
                     F#5
The heartbeat of the heartland
            C#5
She's got a drawl, ya'll,
      E5                    B5                   F#5    E-F#5  E-F#5
Yeah, she's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
E            C#5  E5   B5  F#5
Let there be cowgirls,      ooooooh, come on

Let there be cowgirls for every cowboy
          B5            F#5       C#5
Make them strong as any man, Lordy
                    E5                   B5
Something you can't tame, she's a mustang
                     F#5
The heartbeat of the heartland
            C#5
She's got a drawl, ya'll,
      E5                    B5                   F#5
Yeah, she's the salt of the earth that rocks my world
E-F#5  E-F#5      E-F#5  E-F#5
             Son!
E            C#5  E5   B5  F#5
Let there be cowgirls,      ooooooh
             C#5  E5   B5  F#5
Let there be cowgirls, come on

C#5   E5   B5   F#5   x2
E-F#5  E-F#5      E-F#5  E-F#5   E5   C#5
            (whistle)


the E-F#5 bit is a quick E and then slide to F#5.  listen to the song at that
point...it's pretty easy to figure out.
