My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
By Chris Ledoux

I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy
G                     D
And lovin' the cowboy ways
Pursuin' the life of my high ridin' heroes
  E7                     A
I burned up my childhood days
I learned all the rules of the modern day drifter
          G                     D
Don't you hold onto nothin' too long
     G                           D
Just take what you need from the ladies
     Bm             D          A           D
Then leave them the words of a sad country song

   G                       D
My heroes have always been cowboys
E7                    A
And they still are it seems
G                       D           G
Sadly in search of, but one step in back of
    D                A           D
Themselves and their slow movin' dreams

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From bein' alone too long
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Knowin' well your best days are gone
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen
I let the words of my youth fade away
Old worn-out saddles, old worn-out memories
With no one and no place to stay
