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

repeat #3

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
