G            /                 D                /
Followin the stars through the honkey-tonks and bars
F6a9            Ca9           G      /
Dream away on a country music pride
G                 /
Start the evenin' by myself,
             D                  /
 but you can bet by the hour of twelve
             F6a9           Ca9        G       G
Gonna have a pretty painted lady by my side
                F6a9           Ca9        G     /    G    /
Talkin' ^?bout a pretty painted lady by my side

Now I'll tell that woman how it used to be
when the west was wild and the land was free
How a western word would travel for a country mile
Then one day when the drugstores came
 and forced my hand to play a truckin' game
Wishin' to be a cowboy all the while
           F               C              G      /
Yes, I was wishin' to be a cowboy all the while

E-           /                   A-         /
Painted Lady tell me of the past gone by
G                /              C       /
Hold me like the open range and ride me high
E-             /              A-                C         D       /   D  
Take me to the days when your dress was made of calico or gingham
      C /       A-  /    F6a9   /    /    /
And a man was a man....
G   /   G   /

Painted Lady with your painted face
Tell me bout your life in this painted place
Tell me with your lovin' lips and lovin' eyes
I can feel the pain, I can see the fears
on the painted cheeks that hide the tears
Of a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
Talkin' bout a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
