Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
G7 and A7 can be played instead of G and A, which I'm pretty sure is how he
plays it. He also throws in a lot of Xsus chords intermitantly throughout
the song, along with a sort of Travis style finger picking. Enjoy!

Don Edwards - The Cowboy's Song

Intro: C G F F C G C

C                        
Pushin horns weren't easy 
         F               C
like the movie says it was
C
I don't remember dance hall girls 
   G
Or hotel rooms with rugs 
           C
You worked hot and tired and nasty
          F               C
Rode your pony's head too low 
                        G
And all them nights you couldn't sleep
      F
Cause it was too damn cold 
           C           G            C
And we sing Strawberry Roan, Little Joe
 
C
Like the time we hit the river 
        F                C
And the rain begun to fall 
C
The water risin' so damn fast
     G
We thought it'd drown us all 
       C
Now we lost a lot of steers that day 
    F                  C
And four or five good mounts 
                           G
But when all the boys rode into camp
F
We knew that's what counts 
            C             G             C
And we sang, yippie ti yi yay, Amazing Grace
 
C
Or the night they broke behind us 
         F                C
And they took us by surprise 
C
I whistled out to Bonner 
          G
I saw the terror in his eyes
       C
And he rode for all his horse would ride 
      F                 C
And I know he done his best 
                     G
But he crossed over Jordan
       F
Ridin' Dunny to his death 
            C                   G                     C
And we sang, Bringing in the Sheaves and The Rugged Cross

C F C C G C A D

D
When you see the cowboy
         G               D
He's not ragged by his choice 
D
And he never meant to bow them legs 
            A
Or put that gravel in his voice 
      D
Just chasin' what he really loves
       G               D
What's burnin' in his soul 
                     A                G
Wishin' to hell that he'd been born a hundred years ago
             D           A               D
Still singin' Strawberry Roan and Little Joe
                         A                  D
still singin' Strawberry Roan... and Little Joe
