[Intro]
D D D D

[Verse]
   D
He was an old time cowboy don't you understand
    D
His eyes were sharp as razor blades his face was leather tan
    G                               D
His toes were pointed inward from a hangin' on a horse
   D              A          D
He was an old philosopher of course

[Verse]
   D
He was so thin I swear you could have used him for a whip
   D
He had to drink a beer to keep his breeches on his hips
  G                               D
I knew I had to ask him about the mysteries of life
   D                A              D
He spit between his boots and he replied

[Chorus]
       D              G           A            D
Faster horses younger women older whiskey more money

[Verse]
   D
He smiled and all his teeth were covered with tobacco stains
   D
He said it don't do men no good to pray for peace and rain
G                               D
Peace and rain is just a way to say prosperity
    D                A               D
And buffalo chips is all it means to me

[Verse]
     D
So I told him I was a poet I was looking for the truth
  D
I do not care for horses whiskey women or the loot
  G                          D
I said I was a writer and my soul was all on fire
   D                A              D
He looked at me and said you are a liar

[Chorus]
       D              G           A            D
Faster horses younger women older whiskey more money

[Verse]
     E
Well I was disillusioned if I say the least
  E
I grabbed him by the collar and I jerked him to his feet
    A                                  E
And there was somethin' cold and shiny laying by my head
     E            B
So I started to believe the things he said

[Verse]
        E
Well my poet days are over and I'm back to being me
   E
As I enjoy the peace and comfort of reality
   A                           E
If my boy ever asks me what it is that I have learned
  E                B          E
I think that I will readily affirm

[Chorus]
                E              A           B            E
Son it's faster horses younger women older whiskey more money
       E              A           B            E
Faster horses younger women older whiskey more money
       E              A           B            E
Faster horses younger women older whiskey more money
