General notes:
This version of Tumbling Tumbleweeds is the version played in The Children's Shakespeare's
Society's recent production of As You Like It (9/11/2015 - 9/12/2015). Simplified and changed 
somewhat from the original song by Sons of the Pioneers.

Strumming rhythm: When I played this in As You Like It, I did the same steady rhythm without change until 
the outro. First you hit the root note, then strum down (missing the root note so as to let that ring out 
through the chord) then strum back up again, then repeat the process. Each full cycle took two beats (one 
beat for the root note, one beat for strumming down then up).

Written down:

D  D U 
1 + 2 

Capo: The original song had no capo. To do our version capo 5th fret.

Intro (self made): C F C G7

Verse:

C                     F              C 
I'm a roaming cowboy, riding all day long,
G7                     C
Tumbleweeds around me, sing their lonely song.
F                             C
Nights underneath the prairie moon,
D7                      G
I ride alone and sing a tune.

Chorus:

F                 F7
See them tumbling down,
E                          E7
Pledging their love to the ground,
F                       C
Lonely but free I'll be found,
G7                               C
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

F                     F7
Cares of the past are behind,
E                      E7
Nowhere to go but I'll find,
F                         C
Just where the trail will wind,
G7                               C
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

Bridge:

  Fm6                 C
I know when night has gone,
       Am6 B7              Em
That a new world's born at dawn.

Chorus:

F                 F7
I'll keep rolling along,
E                     E7
Deep in my heart is a song,
F                     C
Here on the range I belong,
G7                               C
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.
