Intro G-D-C-D 1x

G                   D
If I was a gambling man, 
C
never would have let you play your hand
         G           D           C
with the broken down cowboy like me
G                            D
Cos you never can trust your luck
C
he's bad news in a pickup truck
   G           D           C
a broken down cowboy like me

G                    D
He played every card he's got 
C
had a good hand but he messed it up
         G           D           C
With that bum-around tumble-down heart

G                     D
Saddlebags full of pain
C
carries them around just like her middle name
G               D            C
a losing streak play them or dont

Chorus
D               G     C                   G
Oh he string you along sang you a lonesome song 
D              G        
but he wind up alone again

D-C-G-C 2x

G                      D
no matter how hard you try
C
never gonna let you get inside
  G               D           C
that tumbled down broken down hard
G                      D
it's a tough riding rodeo 
C
mean hard stewin long time ago
   G           D           C
a broken down cowboy like me

G                      D
But the way I feel about you
C
wouldn't want that horse to hurt you to
   G           D           C
a broken down cowboy like me

Solo(same as verse)

Chorus
D               G     C                   G
Oh he string you along sang you a lonesome song
D              G        
but he wind up alone again

D-C-G-C 2x

G                   D
If I was a gambling man, 
C
never would have let you play that hand
         G           D           C
with the broken down cowboy like me

The G in the chorus sounds better as an Em. Apart from that, a good job! :)
