Dear Mama I'm A Cowboy Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Red Steagall and Richard O'Brien
C G7 C Dm There's nothin' left but ashes the fire is gone for good G7 F C G7 I'm trapped here in this cabin too cold to go for wood C G7 C Dm I thought I'd write a letter let you know that I'm okay G7 F C Though my leg still hurts a little from a bad spill yesterday
F G7 C E7 Am Dear mama I'm a cowboy and I know that breaks your heart F G7 F C G7 All the things they wrote about me must've torn your world apart C G7 C F Dm So mama please forgive me though I drove you near insane G7 F G7 C I never killed nobody and I never robbed that train
G7 C Dm We found him in the springtime at the table where he died G7 F C G7 Tears had stained the paper when he bowed his head and cried C G7 C Dm We all just bawled like babies as we read it one by one G7 F C G7 And thought of our own mamas and all the things we left undone
C G7 C Dm Then we rolled him in his blanket and as the boys all gathered round G7 F C I read his letter one more time as we placed him in the ground
G7 F G7 C I never killed nobody and I never robbed that train
