My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

Song Author Sharon Vaughn Lyrics by: Sharon Vaughn Performer: Waylon Jennings Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy
[F]Loving the cowboy [C]ways

Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes
I [D7]burned up my childhood [G7]days   

I [C]learned all the rules of the modern day drifter
Don't you [F]hold onto nothing too [C]long
Just [F]take what you need from the [C]ladies
Then [F]leave them the [C]words of a [G7]sad country [C]song

My [F]heroes have always been [C]cowboys
[D7]And they still are it [G7]seems
[F]Sadly in search of  [C]but one step in [F]back of
Them[C]selves and their [G7]slow moving [C]dreams


Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From [F]being alone too [C]long
You [F]could die from the cold in the arms of a [C]nightmare
Knowing [D7]well your best days are [G7]gone   

[C]Picking up hookers instead of my pen
I let [F]the words of my years fade [C]away
Old [F]worn out saddles old [C]worn out
Mem[F]ories with [C]no one and [G7]no place to [C]stay

I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy
Loving the cowboy ways

Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes
I burned up my childhood days

I learned all the rules of the modern day drifter
Don't you hold onto nothing too long
Just take what you need from the ladies
Then leave them the words of a sad country song

My heroes have always been cowboys
And they still are it seems
Sadly in search of  but one step in back of
Themselves and their slow moving dreams

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From being alone too long
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Knowing well your best days are gone

Picking up hookers instead of my pen
I let the words of my years fade away
Old worn out saddles old worn out
Memories with no one and no place to stay
