INTRO:
D   G  D x 2

   D                          G              D
Jesse went away last summer couple of month ago
   D                                G               D
After all our time together, it was hard to see her go
  D                               G                                 D
She called me right up when she arrived, asked me one more time to come
 D                              G               D
Livn on an L.A. freeway, aint my kind of havin fun
 G                      D
I think Id rather be a cowboy
 G                           D
I think Id rather ride the range
  G                     D
I think Id rather be a cowboy
A                      Asus             D       
Than to lay me down in love and ladys chains

D G D x2

 D                                   G            D
When we were just beginning, it was such an easy way
  D                                      G               D
Layin back up in the mountains, singin songs for sunny days
  D                                         G                D
But she got tired of picking daisies and cookin my meals for me
  D                                             G               D
She can live the life she wants to, yes, and its all right with me
 G                      D
I think Id rather be cowboy
 G                            D
I think Id rather ride the range
 G                        D
I think Id rather be a cowboy
A                       Asus            D
Than to lay me down in love and ladys chains

  A       Asus          G          D
Id rather live on the side of a mountain
   A     Asus                   G             D
Than wander through canyons of concrete and steel
  A          Asus          G            D
Id rather laugh with the rain and sunshine
  C                   G          E7      A      Asus A Asus
An lay down my sundown in some starry field
  D                                    G         D
Oh, but I miss her in the mornin, when I awake alone
  D                                   G              D
And the absence of her laughter is a cold and empty sound
  D                                               G     D
But her memory always makes me smile and I want you to know
  D                               G               D
I love her, yes I love her just enough to let her go
  G                       D
I think Id rather be a cowboy
  G                          D
I think Id rather ride the range
 G                        D                      
I think Id rather be a cowboy
  A                     Asus             D
Than to lay me down in love and ladys chains
