intro: D A7 D

D                                    G             D     
Pushin horns weren't easy like the movies said it was,          
D                                          A7
and I don't recall no dancehall girls or hotel rooms with rugs,
  D                                            G            D
 you worked hot and tired and nasty rode yer ponys head to low 
D                                A7            G
there were all the nights you couldn't sleep cause it was to damn cold 
                 D        A7              D
and youd sing Strawberry Roan and Little Joe.

verse 2
 D                                       G             D
Like the time we hit the river and the rains began to fall
D                                          A7 
and the water was risin so damn fast we thought itd drown us all
  D                                     G                 D     
 we lost a lot of steers that day and four to five good mounts 
D                           A7           G
but when all the boys rode into camp we new that's what counts 
              D          A7               D
and we sang Yippi Ti Yi Yay and Amazing Grace. 

Bm                                        G            D
Or' the night it rode behind us and then took us by surprise 
Bm                                    A            A7
I whistled out to Bonnor I seen the terror in his eyes
D                                          G                      
 but he rode for all his horse would ride and I know he done his best 
D                     A            G
but he crossed over Jordan ridin Dunny to his death 
               D              A7                    D
and we sang Bringin in the Sheaves and the Rugged Cross.

 D                                     G             D
 So when you see the cowboy hes not ragged by his choice,
D                                              A7
 he never meant to bow them legs or put that gravel in his voice
D                                                  G            D
 hes just chasing what he really loves and whats burnin in his soul 
D                   A7                G
wishin to God that hed been born a hundred years ago
               D          A7              D
 still singin Strawberry Roan and Little Joe
