        [Verse 1]
  D                                                   G  
        Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
        A                                       D
        They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold
                                                             G           
        Lonestar belt buckles and old faded Levi's and each night begins a new day      
           A                         
        If you don't understand him and he don't die young
                                  D
        He'll probably just ride away


        [Chorus]
        D                                         G     
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
               A                                         
        Don't let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
                                              D
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and such
                                                   G  
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
                 A             
        They'll never stay home and they're always alone
                                D  
        Even with someone they love


        [Verse 2](A tone higher) 
    E                                                        A 
        Cowboys like smokey ol' pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
         B                                                 E
        Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night

        Them that don't know him won't like him
                          A 
        And them that do sometimes won't know how to take him
            B
        He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him
                                                E
        Do the things that make you think he's right


        [Chorus]
        E                                         A     
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
             B                                         
        Don't let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks
                                           E
        Make them be doctors and lawyers and such
                                                   A  
        Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
              B             
        They'll never stay home and they're always alone
                             E  
        Even with someone they love

Excellent chords (although I only came on here to print it out for the band and not do it up myself. It is in D and goes up to E. Perfect.

Substitute A7 for A in the first half of the song, and B7 for B in the second half, and this is right on.
