CAPO 1 

      C          G          F            Em
There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range,
    Am            F              C    Em
His horse and his cattle are his only companions, 
   Am           F             C              Em
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons, 
 F          C           G           Dm          G
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change.     

    F                    G           C
And as the moon rises he sits by his fire, 
Am             F         C          G
Thinking about women and glasses of beer, 
    F                       G       C
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire, 
   Am          F             C             G
He sings out a song which is soft but it's clear, 
    D                     G     
As if maybe someone could hear.         

[Chorus]
        C             F          G   C
He says goodnight you moonlight  ladies,        
Am        F           C
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James, 
Am              F            C
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose, 
           D                  G 
Won't you let me go down in my dreams   , 
    F         G        C
And rock-a-by sweet baby James. 

                        
Well the first of December was covered with snow,                       
And so   was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston,                           
The Birkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frostin',                                   
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go    . 
                        
There's a song that they sing when they take to the ighway,                             
A song that they sing when they take to the sea,                        
A song that they sing of their  home in the sky,                        
Maybe you can believe it, if it helps you to sleep,                             
But singing works just fine for me.     

[Chorus]                                
He says goodnight you moonlight ladies,                                 
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James,                    
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose,                  
Won't you let me go down in my dreams   ,                       
And rock-a-by sweet baby James.

Thanks. Now these songs don't need to be too complicated do they?

I think there are some chord errors in this version. The last line before the chorus isn't right from the G chord on the line above. Otherwise pretty good.
