Cowboy Bill Recorded by Garth Brooks Written by Larry Bastian and Ed Berghoff
C F C He told a good story and all of us kids listened G7 Bout his life on the border and the way it was then C F C And we all believed and when he would finish G7 C We'd ask the old cowboy to tell 'em again
Am C You could almost hear those prairie winds blowin' Am C G7 His saddle a creaking neath his old faded jeans C F C You could taste the dry dust from the trail he was ridin' G7 C As he sat there and he painted those west Texas scenes
F C And the grown-ups would tell us you boys keep your distance D7 G7 That old man's just tellin' you lies C F C But to all of us kids Cowboy Bill was a hero G7 C Just as true as his blue Texas sky
F C He told of a time when he rode with the Rangers G7 Down on the Pecos and he saved the day C F C Outnumbered by plenty they were almost to cover G7 C With thirty banditos headed their way
Am C He looked back just in time to see a horse stumble Am C G7 The captain went down and Bill pulled up on his reins C F C Through a flurry of bullets he rescued the captain G7 C They rode for a sunset just the story remains
F C But I still remember the day that it happened G7 We waited and we waited but Bill never showed C F C The folks at the feed store said they hadn't seen him G7 C So we set out for his place down Old Grist Mill Road
Am C And we cried when we found him lying there with his memories Am C G7 The old trunk wide open things scattered about C F C He was clutchin' a badge that said Texas Ranger G7 C And an old yeller letter said Texas is proud
F C And those grown-ups had told us you boys keep your distance D7 G7 That old man's just tellin' you lies C F C Now they're all sayin' that Cowboy Bill was a hero G7 F Just as true as his blue Texas skies C G7 C Just as true as his blue Texas skies
