How To Play

INTRO
Am E Am E
Am ...
 
VERSE 1
Am
It's been a long dark dirty road
F                  C
And pocket full of gold
    E
And I've been out here now
Am
All on my own
Am
Well it's real quiet here
F              C
Just the way I like it here
        E
There's no one to bother me
          Am
Except...
 
Am         F            C
   In 1955, born into Wadena's pride
E
  I laid my head on that
Am
   Milligan creek bed
Am
   When I was a young man
F                      C
  I helped build this land
     E                         Am
Oh, I put down these rails as a CPR man
 
Am
Thought I'd live forever
F                   C
With my heart in my pocket
       E
Oh, my gun by my side
       Am
And my feelings in a locket
 
Am                         F         C
Well, that was a cold year in Seventyseven
    E
But I married my wife
Am
We had 2 kids
Am
I gave her a daughter
F             C
She gave me a son
       E                      Am
And we rode those damn horses until we had none
 
Am
Fists still like flying
F                C
Doing things for dyin'
     E                            Am
Oh I should have put that old gun away
 
CHORUS
    F    G               Am
But I, I am me, a broken cowboy
    F       C             E
And I don't feel right no more
       F G           Am
'Cause I am a broken cowboy
 
SOLO
Am F C E Am   (x2)
 
VERSE 2
Am
Livin' life in the fast lane
F               C
Racing cars and robbing trains
  E
I thought I had it all
Am
Then one day I got the call
Am
A father's worst dream
F           C        E
My son went down and I
 
Am
The colours deceive me
F        C
As I see grey
          E
Oh you're cutting me down with those
Am
Cold words you're saying
Am
Then you called me brother
F                 C             E
But this can't be so 'cause you slander my name
Am                          F E Am
Anywhere the wind will blow
 
CHORUS
F        G               Am
But I, I am me, a broken cowboy
    F       C             E
And I don't feel right no more
       F G           Am
'Cause I am a broken cowboy
    F G         Am
Yes I am broken cowboy
 
OUTRO
Am
It's been a long dark dirty road
F                    C
But a pocket full of gold
    E
And I've been out here now
Am
All on my own
Am
Well it's real quiet here
F              C
Just the way I like it here
        E
There's no one to bother me
       Am
Except that old taunting tree
