Nelson Willie – Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys
 C                                            F
Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
       G7
Don't let them pick guitars and drive in old trucks
                                     C
Make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such
                                            F
Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
         G7
They'll never stay home and they're always alone
                        C
Even with someone they love

                                                  F
Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
     G7                                               C
And they'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold

Lone Star belt buckles and old faded Levis
          F
And each night begins a new day
        G7
And if you don't understand him and he don't die young
                          C
He'll probably just ride away

Repeat #1
                                                         F
 A  cowboy loves smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
 G7                                                  C
Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night

Them that don't know him won't like him
                  F
And them that do sometimes won't know how to take him
          G7
He's not wrong he's just different and his pride won't let him
                                  C
Do things to make you think he's right

Repeat #1
