Cowboys Don't Shoot Straight  
Recorded by Tammy Wynette
Written by Chips Moman and Bobby Emmons

Big silver buckles and pre-faded jeans
White knuckle rides on the buckin' machine
Em C
He rode into my life looking just like a sunset
Am G A7
Turned out to be a bad dream I'd like to forget

D7 G
Cowboys don't shoot straight like they used to
Em A7 D7
They'll look you in the eye and lie with their white hats on
Cowboys don't shoot straight like they used to
Em A7 D
It's just wham bam thank you ma'am and they're gone

I'd trade my boots and saddle for a ticket to Seattle
Em A7 D7
Get me out from underneath these western skies
G A7
I'm tired of ole blue jeans and if I hear one more
D7 A7
Howdy little lady well I think I'm gonna scream

Repeat #2 x2
