[Verse 1]

             A        G
I am an old cowboy
                      D
I don't ride much no more
                A       G
I came to this valley
                 D
right after the war
                    Bm      G
and I used to shoe horses
                            D
and there's some saddles I built
                     A        G
and I've rode after cattle
                 D
all over these hills
  
[Verse 2] 
                    A           G                   
Started out at the pitchfork
                D
when I was thirteen
              A         G
Riding young horses
            D
riding my dreams
                         Bm         G
and them old hands they taught me
                      D
all it takes is some nerve
                 A                       G
just throw a leg over and ride what you ride
                   D
for all that it's worth

 
[Bridge 1] 
A                  G
    Some folks regret
                     D
the lives that they lead
      Bm                    G
they stare out the window
                  D
they yearn to be free
F#
I live the life
                  Bm     G
that was given to me
         D
and I threw a leg over
     A                      Bm      G
and rode it for all it was worth
       D         A
Yes I rode it
                 G       D
for all it was worth
  
[Verse 3] 
                     A             G
I was blue eyed and windburned
                     D
I was every girl's dream
                    A            G
Wild steers on the mountain
                           D
where the butt brush was green
                           Bm         G
and though some days were dark ones
                           D
when that old north wind blew
                    A         G
I just gathered my reigns
                 D
and I rode it through
 
[Verse 4] 
             A        G
Time comes creeping
                   D
to wipe out your tracks
                            A          G
but if your trail's been a good one
                        D
you don't mind looking back
                 Bm        G
Dreams are like horses
                      D
they roam wild on the earth
               A           G
catch one and ride it
                   D
for all that it's worth
 
[Bridge 2] 
A                 G
   Some folks regret
                D
the lives they lead
      Bm                    G
they stare out the window
                       D
how they yearn to be free
F#
I live the life
                  Bm     G
that was given to me
         D
and I threw a leg over
     A                      Bm      G
and rode it for all it was worth
       D         A
Yes I rode it
                G      D
for all it was worth
 
[Outro] 
             A       G
I am an old cowboy
                      D    
I don't ride much no more
