Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys - Willie Nelson

Chorus:
D               G
Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
      A
don't let them pick guitars and drive in old trucks
         A7     D
make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such
D               G
Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
        A      
they'll never stay home and they're always alone
     A7         D
even with someone they love


D                  G
Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
    A                 A7          D
and they'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold
D
Lone Star belt buckles and old faded Levis and each night 
        G
begins a new day
       A          
and if you don't understand him and he don't die young
          A7        D
he'll probably just ride away


Repeat chorus

(keychange)

E                    A
A cowboy loves smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings
B                B7       E
little warm puppies and children and girls of the night
E                    
Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do sometimes 
             A
won't know how to take him
    B             
he's not wrong he's just different and his pride won't let him
            B7  E
do things to make you think he's right


Repeat chorus ad infinitum or something :-)
