The Only One I Know (Cowboy Life)
Cody Johnson Band
Album: 

Intro | E | A | A | A | A |

E                            A
Another daybreak wakes me up to a hotel lobby coffee cup,
      C#m              B                     A
That dirty old white pickup truck with the trailer hooked up by the Denny's she's mine.
E                                     A
  Last night's bugs on the windshield,  fast food trash on the dash meal
C#m                         B                 A                              E
  A speeding ticket and a doctor bill from a gash I got from a short go in Casper, 
A            E    A     E          A
  Summer of last year, maybe next year.

A            E          A         E                   A  
  Oh, and I ride and I fall, One day I might win 'em all, 
            E                                    B
It's just broken hearts and broken bones, and a hell of a whole lot of being alone.
       E          A             E              A
But I ride and I roam, where I hang my hat is home
      E                                       B          E
This cowboy life might kill me, but it's the only one I know.

E                                A 
Cell phone was breaking up, the night she called to say she'd had enough
       C#m                 B                  A                                  B
Of my little white lies, little white lies, wanting somebody who could never be with her

E                                          A
I look back on every fork in the road that I took to chase that buckle of gold
     C#m                        B                     A                E
And wonder if what I held from what I hold is worth trading away, Hell I don't know. 

A                  E          A         E                  A
  All I know is I ride and I fall, One day I might win 'em all, 
            E                                    B
It's just broken hearts and broken bones, and a hell of a whole lot of being alone.
       E          A             E              A
But I ride and I roam, where I hang my hat is home
      E                                       B          E
This cowboy life might kill me, but it's the only one I know.

E           A                              E
Yeah it'll kill me before it ever let's me go, 
               C#m           E
It'll kill me, but it's the only life I know.
          A                                                            B       E    B
And I'd rather die than be caught crying, so I just smile and wear my hat down lo--w
E                 A
Wear my hat down low.

       E          A         E                   A
And I ride and I fall, One day I might win 'em all, 
            E                                    B
It's just broken hearts and broken bones, and a hell of a whole lot of being alone.
       E          A             E              A
But I ride and I roam, where I hang my hat is home
      E                                       B          E
This cowboy life might kill me, but it's the only one I know.
 
                                                   B          E
Yeah this cowboy life might kill me, but it's the only one I know.
