By Hank Williams Jr
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

    A                        E             A
The old Nashville cowboy was burdened with time
       A                         F#m            A 
He was bent by his years and the fight with the wine
       A                         D           A
With a head full of music and an old nursery rhyme
  A                         E           A
A heart full of sadness and dark sunken nights
   A                          E            A
He told me they've cheated he told me they stole
    A                               F#m            A
The strength from his youth and the songs from his soul
   A                          D          A
He said he raised family till he got too old
And he called them miners mother Lord finders
A                  E              A
Digging so deep in search of more gold

   E                             A 
Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range
     E                        A
Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James
        D                    A            D       D/C#  Bm
Now the good guys on TV seem bad ain't it strange
        A                            E          A
And the old Nashville cowboys missed out on the change

The old cowboy's life now is gone with the past
Like whiskey he drank it all went out too fast
He didn't know how to make each swallow last
And a head waitress won't be back to fill up his glass

Chorus 2:
Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range
Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James
Is anyone listening or is everyone blind
And old Nashville cowboys will sing for a dime

    A                           E          A 
And hard times are cheap at the end of the line
