{Intro: (Pick each note of chord once and let ring)} G
   C                      Cadd9
 I leave these city lights
       G                        G7
 Ev'ry Friday and Saturday night
 C                             Cadd9
 Back to this hole-in-the-wall
         G                      G7
 I still get that back home call     

           C                      Cadd9
 I left my ranch and now it's gone
             G                           G7 
 I don't fit in but still I'm holdin' on
        C                          Cadd9
 When I sit at the bar it suites me
             G                D7
 Where's the cowboy I used to be

                 G                       D7    
      I ain't an Urban cowboy that don't understand
      Am                         C
      What it's like to live and work the land
         C                               Em
      So I sit here drinkin' and feelin' coy
      Am  D7          G                          G  
      Hey Hey look at me {tacet} I'm a Bourbon Cowboy

    G                                                  C
    When you don't rope and you don't rustle and don't work the land
                D7                                    G
    When you're all tied up in suites 'cause you're a business man
    E                                                         G
    Drinkin on the weekend at some honky-tonk that brings you joy
    E                                                       G
    Fetch another round lay that bottle down on the counter boy
    Am                                                           D
    I'm a whiskey drinkin' self defeatin' boot wearin' corporate toy
    Am   D7          G                           G
    Hey, Hey look at me {tacet}  I'm a Bourbon Cowboy 

             C                          Cadd9
 I leave the honky-tonk after the fights
       G                        G7
 On my way back home I just sigh
   C                        Cadd9
 I look in the mirror to see
     G                  G7
 The cowboy I used to be

 C                    Cadd9
 Contrary to that poem
     G                           G7
 Sometimes you just can't go home
    C                   Cadd9
 At least not to a place
      G                      D7
 That progress has stripped away



 A    D7          G                        G
 Hey, Hey look at me {tacet} I'm a Bourbon Cowboy
 A      D7         G                        G 
 Have a drink with Me {tacet} I'm a Bourbon Cowboy
