[INTRO]
G  G/F#  Em  A7sus4  A7

[VERSE]
      D             A      G            F#m
There is a young cowboy he lives on the range
    Bm            G              D       F#m
His horse and his cattle are his only companion
   Bm           G             D             F#m
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon
G           D           A           Em7      A7
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change
    G                    A7sus4      D
And as the moon rises he sits by his fire
Bm             G         D          A
Thinkin' about women and glasses of beer
G                       A7sus4    D
Closing his eyes as the doggies retire
   Bm          G              D
He sings out a song, which is soft but it's clear
      E7sus4  E7          A7sus4   A7
As if maybe someone could hear

[CHORUS]
D             G         A7sus4 D
Goodnight you moonlight la-----dies
Bm         G          D    Dsus2    D
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James
Bm              G             D
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
          E7sus4    E7         A7sus4     A7
Won't you let me go down in my dreams
    G          A7sus4     D    Dsus2    D
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James

[VERSE]
        D        A            G            F#m
Now the first of December was covered with snow
    Bm         G             D              F#m
And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston
         Bm                G              D             F#m
Lord the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting
     G           D           A            Em7       A7
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go
          G                             A7sus4      D
There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway
  Bm             G              D           A
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
  G                            A7sus4      D
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
      Bm        G              D
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
    E7sus4        E7            A7sus4    A7
But singing works just fine for me

[CHORUS]
    D             G         A7sus4 D
So, goodnight you moonlight la-----dies
Bm         G          D    Dsus2    D
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James
Bm              G             D
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
          E7sus4    E7         A7sus4     A7
Won't you let me go down in my dreams
    G          A7sus4     D    Dsus2    D
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James

As this appears to include changes from Version 1 as commented on by Coxm11, I'm just going to provide his suggested fingerings for the chords above that don't match the pop-up box (or at least not the first variation.)

Asus4 - x02033 (is actually an A7sus4)
Em7 - 022030 (Em with addition of 3rd fret B string)
Bm7 - x24232 (barred Bm minus the pinky on G string)

Also:
D/F# - 200232 (just a slash chord so D with a F# bass note - I use my thumb)

Read Coxm11's comment under Version 1 for further explanation and other tidbits.
