"The Cowboy Rides Away"
By George Strait
Album: Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind
Written by Sonny Throckmorton & Casey Kelly

Intro: G C D G

1st Verse:
G                                                          C
I knew the stakes were high right from the start,
D                                                 G       D
When she dealt the cards I dealt my heart,
G                                                 C
Now I just found a game that I can't play,
D                                            G
This is where the cowboy rides away.

1st Chorus:
G                                                     C
And my heart is sinking like the setting sun,
D                                         G       D
Setting all the things I wish I'd done.
G                                            C
It's time to say goodbye to yesterday,
D                                            G
This is where the cowboy rides away.

Instrumental Break: G C D G

2nd Verse:
G                                                       C
We've been in and out of love and in between,
D                                                          G        
D
And now we've played the final showdown scene.
G                                                          C
And as the credits roll a sad song starts to play,
D                                            G
This is where the cowboy rides away.

2nd Chorus:
G                                                     C
And my heart is sinking like the setting sun,
D                                         G       D
Setting all the things I wish I'd done.
G                                                        C
Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say,
D                                            G
This is where the cowboy rides away.

G                                                        C
Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say,
D                                            G
This is where the cowboy rides away.
