Em      Em      Em     Em     Em        G 
me and my uncle went ridin on down from Colorado
G               B7      B7   Em   Em   Em 
west texas bound, we stopped in Santa Fe 
Em    G  G  B7      B7 
that part a bout bein half way
 Em      B7                     Em 
besides it was the hottest part of the day
 Em     Em    Em   Em    Em 
we led our ponies into a stall 
 G      B7    B7    Em    Em       Em 
 went to a bar, boys, bought drinks for all
 Em       G     G        B7    B7 
 two days in the saddle; my body hurt
 G      B7      B7       B7 
it bein' summer I took off my shirt
 Em                    B7                Em 
 and tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt
west texas cowboys all over town
with gold and silver, they're loaded down
just in from roundup you know it seemed a shame
and so my uncle starts a friendly game
high low jack, the winner takes again
and from the beginning my uncle started to win
 them Texas cowboys they was mad as sin
 some said he was cheatin, but that can't be 
 because my uncle, why he's honest as me
I'm as honest as a Denver man can be
one of them cowboys, you know he started to draw
I grabbed a bottle, slapped him in the jaw
I had to shoot another, now he won't grow old
in my confusion, my uncle grabbed the gold
 Em                 Em                   Em        NC 
we hightailed it down to Mexico, went to mexico
god bless cowboys, god bless gold
god bless my uncle, god rest his soul
he taught me well boys taught me all I know 
taught me so well, that I grabbed the gold
 C          B7             NC          E
left him lyin' by the side of the road
