Capo on first fret

Intro is G/D/G

G                 G               C             G
Them old cowboys don’t sing too much no more
They’ve been singing to the wind
  C                           G
And their throats are sore
   G                                            C                        G
And every love they rode away from makes them walk the floor
        D                       C                            G
Them old cowboys don’t sing too much no more. Ooh-ooh-oooh.

Like an old wolf in a leg trap
   C                                      G
They’ll stand up fierce when you come
   D                         C                           G
They want to be counted but their time hasn’t come 
   G                           C                          G
Just an old man drowning in a ten gallon hat
            D                             G
Like an old wolf caught in a leg trap

      C            D             G                D            C
     Dry and dusty dry and dusty whiskey makes the guitar rusty 
      G                                       D
     But soothes the voice like honey for a while
      C                 D                        C            D
     Raise a glass to the cowboy friend who’s like we’ll never see again 
      C              D                  G
     Whos songs run on like water for all time.   Ooh-oo-oooh.

   G                                      C             G
Way out on the prairie the cowboy wrote his songs
   D                                    C                               G
Long have grown the grasses round the spring where he sat long
Who’s crystal shattered fettered souls 
C               G                D                                G
Of all who listened long and the cowboy strummed in time along

(repeat last line chorus end on C) then G/D/C/G
