Cowboy Pride

Song Author Ian Tyson Performer: Michael Martin Murphey Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Friend I'm writing you this [C]letter
And it's a long time over[G]due  
You're thinking just mind your own [D7]business
I wouldn't blame you if you [G]do  

You know our range is gettin' [C]smaller
Hear you're all busted up [G]inside
But it ain't the broncos that'll [D7]kill you
It's just that damned old cowboy [G]pride

Cowboy pride can always [C]get a man [Am]through
But [D7]cowboy pride will make a [G]fool of you
Good women are [D7]hard to find
I'm talkin' about the [G]faithful kind

I hear you're running with that [C]waitress
And she's under age and [G]wild
You know your wife's the best there [D7]is son
Would you move in with that [G]child

She stuck with you through the [C]hard times
Think of all the nights she [G]cried
Will she be another [D7]victim
Of that same old cowboy [G]pride

Guess it's time to close my [C]letter
It's just somethin' that I had to [G]do  
You know I made the same [D7]mistake once
Before she fell in love with [C]you  

So go home to your wife and [C]family
It's time to put the past [G]aside
So you don't end up like [D7]me now
Nothin' left but cowboy [G]pride

Cowboy pride can always [C]get a man [Am]through
But [D7]cowboy pride will make a [G]fool of you
Good women are [D7]hard to find
I'm talkin' about the [G]faithful kind

Don't end up like [D7]me now
With nothin' left but cowboy [G]pride


Friend I'm writing you this letter
And it's a long time overdue
You're thinking just mind your own business
I wouldn't blame you if you do

You know our range is gettin' smaller
Hear you're all busted up inside
But it ain't the broncos that'll kill you
It's just that damned old cowboy pride

Cowboy pride can always get a man through
But cowboy pride will make a fool of you
Good women are hard to find
I'm talkin' about the faithful kind

I hear you're running with that waitress
And she's under age and wild
You know your wife's the best there is son
Would you move in with that child

She stuck with you through the hard times
Think of all the nights she cried
Will she be another victim
Of that same old cowboy pride

Guess it's time to close my letter
It's just somethin' that I had to do
You know I made the same mistake once
Before she fell in love with you

So go home to your wife and family
It's time to put the past aside
So you don't end up like me now
Nothin' left but cowboy pride

Cowboy pride can always get a man through
But cowboy pride will make a fool of you
Good women are hard to find
I'm talkin' about the faithful kind

Don't end up like me now
With nothin' left but cowboy pride
