Verse 1 (same as first part of Intro): D Old Tom Jones, woke up on a winters morn A The sun was barely poking through through the trees D The mercury read minus 50 degrees A He thought for sure the damn thing had finally broken Pre-chorus 1: D Until he walked outside Em D He said Kenny, I'm getting old Em D I'm tired, stove up and I'm cold, C G It's a long time since I've gotten any C G I been crawling over dollar bills and chasing pennies Chorus 1:

Verse 2: This old ranch been here, for many, many a year May for to feed the men, head north for gold It'll still go strong, long after I've moved on So to some to rich fool searching through his soul Pre-chorus 2: D Dreaming of being a cowboy Em D Kenny, so goddamn tired Em D Feel like I'm held together with baling twine and wire C G There's a dance in Jesman Friday night C G There's a widow I'm hoping just might, C G Offer me a little company C G She's a hard one, so I don't think it'll come free Chorus 2:

Verse 3: I never got to see my mom, before she died And I'd like to see just where they laid her bones Back to the rolling hills of Bristol Where ain't no one packs a pistol And a cowboy only rides in books Pre-chorus 3 (Same as pre-chorus 2): And boy, I'll tell some tales And Kenny, I wonder which one's home When you ain't sure anymore, you start to feel alone Just this restlessness, come creeping in Following me anywhere that lately I've been Like a heavy rain banging on the tin The salmon down on the Fraser, swimming with the battered fins Chorus 3:
