My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys – Willie Nelson
Strum: pick-down-down, ¾ time
Intro: | (G) | (x4)

I (G)grew up a-dreaming of being a cowboy
And (C)loving the cowboy (G)ways
(G)Pursuing the life of my high-riding heroes
(A7)I burned up my childhood (D7)days
(G)I learned all the rules of the modern-day drifter
Don’t (C)hold on to nothing too (G)long
Just (C)take what you need from the (G)ladies then (C)leave them
With the (G)words of a (D7)sad country (G)song

(C)My heroes have always been (G)cowboys
(A7) And they still are it (D7)seems
(C) Sadly in search of but (G)one step in (C)back of
Them(G)selves and their (D7)slow-moving (G)dreams

(G)Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From (C)being alone too (G)long
You could (G)die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare
Knowing (A7)well that your best days are (D7)gone
(G)Picking up hookers instead of my pen
I let the (C)words of my years fade a(G)way
(C)Old worn-out saddles and (G)old worn-out (C)memories
With (G)no one and (D7)no place to (G)stay

(C)My heroes have always been (G)cowboys
(A7) And they still are it (D7)seems
(C) Sadly in search of but (G)one step in (C)back of
Them(G)selves and their (D7)slow-moving (G)/dreams

(C)Sadly in search of but (G)one step in (C)back of
Them(G)selves and their (D7)slow-moving (C)dreams (C)(G)

    Hi I don’t know if you remember me but I am Captain Vinnie. A lot of the music that the club played last year came from My song books I lent to Gail. I brought one of my students to meet all you of about six months ago She  has Parkinson’s and had bad left hand shakes.Her shakes have almost stopped and she is playing well. I will let her know about your meetings. I’m glad to see you are still meeting.

    Captain Vinnie.

    Thanks for the update. Sorry I have missed the last 3 or 4 meeting and unfortunately will also miss January as I have a previous scheduled engagement. Don’t give up on me though, I will return.
