Song: Good Ride Cowboy

Verse 1:

From the hills of Kaycee, Wyoming
       G                D
Where life’s wooly and wild
Came a Navy brat in a cowboy
And that Copenhagen smile
And from buckin’ broncs to honky tonks
     G            G/F#   Em
He always sang a cowboy song
         D                      B7
We were much too young, havin’, too much fun
   G      A       D
As we all sang along

        G           D
We sang Life’s A Highway
              G                          D
There’s only one way you’re gonna get through
          G                   D           B7
When she starts to twists, be more like Chris
          E7                  A
Pull your hat down tight and just LeDoux it!!
When that whistle blows and that crowd explodes
         G             G/F#      E
And them pickup men are at your side
               D         A            D
They tell you good ride cowboy, good ride

Verse 2: (Change key to E)
From gold buckles to gold records
     A                      E
Once again he was spinning round
Took the whole world on
F7                          B
And he turned us on to that western under ground
And from Bareback Jack to This Cowboy's Hat

A                A/G#             F#m
His songs were stronger than his pain
         E                   C7
He would not slow down from town to town
               A      B        E
Like children running thru the rain


Repeat Chorus:

I bet he crossed that river Jordan
With Saint Peter on the other side
         D         A            D      G
Singin’ Good Ride Cowboy, Good Ride!
     D        A             D
Say Good Ride Cowboy, Good Ride!

Yall Enjoy!!!!!!

                       In Loving Memory Of:
                           Chris LeDoux

Hey, I know it's not related to the tab itself but just to let anyone who cares know, Mr. Chris LeDoux was in fact an Air Force brat, his father being an airman. Garth has since re-released the song with this correction to the lyrics.
