[Verse]
                      D             A      G            F#m
                There is a young cowboy he lives on the range.
                    Bm            G              D     A  
                His horse and his cattle are his only companion.
                    Bm          G             D             A
                He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon.
                G           D           A           Em      A
                Waiting for summer, his pastures to change.
                    G                    A           D
                And as the moon rises he sits by his fire.
                Bm             G         D          A
                Thinkin' about women and glasses of beer.
                G                       A         D
                Closing his eyes as the doggies retire
                   Bm          G             D             E
                He sings out a song which is soft but it's clear
                   A        E             A
                As if maybe someone could hear.

[Chorus]
                        D             G         A  D
                        Goodnight you moonlight ladies.
                        Bm         G          D
                        Rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
                        Bm              G             D        D
                        Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose.
                                  A        E          A      A
                        Won't you let me go down in my dreams.
                            G          A          D
                        And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.

[Verse]
        D          A          G            F#m
Now the first of December was covered with snow.
    Bm         G             D             E
And so was the turnpike from Stockridge to Boston.
         Bm                G             D              A
Lord the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting.
     G           D           A            Em          A
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go.
          G                             A           D
There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway.
  Bm             G              D           A
A song that they sing when they take to the sea.
  G                              A           D
A song that they sing of their home in the sky.
      Bm        G              D            E
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep.
    A                  E        A    A
But singing works just fine for me.

[Chorus]
                        D             G         A  D
                        Goodnight you moonlight ladies.
                        Bm         G          D
                        Rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
                        Bm              G             D        D
                        Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose.
                                  A         E          A      A
                        Won't you let me go down in my dreams.
                            G          A          D
                        And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
