My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
recorded by Waylon Jennings  [3/4 time]
written by Sharon Vaughn
I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy
F                 C
Loving the cowboy ways
Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes
  D7                     G7
I burned up my childhood days

I learned all the rules of the modern day drifter
          F                     C
Don't you hold onto nothing too long
     F                           C
Just take what you need from the ladies
     F              C          G7          C
Then leave them the words of a sad country song

   F                       C

My heroes have always been cowboys
D7                    G7
And they still are it seems
F                   C               F
Sadly in search of  but one step in back of
    C                G7          C
Themselves and their slow moving dreams
Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
     F               C
From being alone too long
    F                                        C
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
        D7                      G7
Knowing well your best days are gone
Picking up hookers instead of my pen
      F                          C
I let the words of my years fade away
    F                    C
Old worn out saddles old worn out
   F          C          G7          C
Memories with no one and no place to stay
