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

Repeat #3

G7 F G7 C
I never killed nobody and I never robbed that train
