Don Edwards – The Cowboy Life chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
Dm CThe cowboy life is a dreary, dreary life
Am Dm Some say it's free from care
F CRounding up the cattle from morning till night
Dm A DmIn the middle of the prairie so bare
[Verse 2]
Dm CHalf-past four, that noisy cook will roar
Am Dm "Hey boys, it's the breaking of day”
F CSlowly we rise with sleepy-feeling eyes
Dm A DmAs the short summer night passed away
[Verse 3]
Dm CThe cowboy life is a dreary, dreary life
Am Dm From dawn till the setting sun
F CThen his day's work it is not done
Dm A DmFor there's still his night guard to go on
[Verse 4]
Dm CThe wolves and owls with their terrifying howls
Am DmDisturb us in our midnight dream
F CWhen we layin' in our slickers on a cold, rainy night
Dm A DmWay over on the Pecos stream
[Verse 5]
Dm CThe cowboy life is a dreary, dreary life
Am Dm All out in the midnight rain
F CPunchin' cattle from morning till night
Dm A DmWay out on the Texas plains
[Verse 6]
Dm CSpring sets in, our troubles all begin
Am DmThe weather being fierce and cold
F CWe're almost froze from the water on our clothes
Dm A DmAnd the cattle we can scarcely hold
[Verse 7]
Dm CNow the cowboy life is a mighty dreary life
Am DmAll out in the sleet and snow
F CWinter time comes, he begins to think
Dm A DmWhere did his summer wages go
[Verse 8]
Dm CI once loved to roam, but now I stay at home
Am DmAll you punchers take my advice
F CSell your bridle and saddle, quit your rowing and travels
Dm A DmTie on to a pretty little wife
[Verse 9]
Dm CYou can talk about your farms and your big city charms
Am DmYou can talk about your silver and gold
F CBut the cowboy life is a dreary, dreary life
Dm A DmWhen you're driving through the heat and the cold
[Verse 10]
Dm CThe cowboy life is a dreary, dreary life
Am DmAll out in the heat and the cold
F CWhile the rich man is sleeping on his velvet couch
Dm A DmDreaming of his silver and gold
