Transcription for Cowpie by Rick Simms   MrHappy498@aol.com
Comments and any advice always welcome
       Strum a measure each of the A and then D chord as shown below 
       Intro: A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D
                   A
Verse 1:  I can hear that highway calling
                   D                                               A          
          D
             As I watch the sunrise crawling across her shoulder
                  A
             This is usually goodbye
                   D                                                      A   
          D    
             And yet those words I just can't find here as I hold her

            Option: (Strum once) D
             She's like no other women

             Option: (Strum once) E
             That I have ever known before

                   (Strum once) D
             And it ain't me to see the morning sun
                   E
             From this side of the door
             A                       D                 F#    E
Chorus:  Why aInt I running, Why aint I gone
             A                               D                    F#     E
             How does she hold me Without holding on
                               D                                 E
             In love or a fight, she's stronger than strong
                                       F#                  E             D    
   
             Somethings not right if there aint nothing wrong
                      A     D                             E
             Its got me wondering,why aint I running
                               A   D  A   D 
             Why aint I gone
                A
Verse 2:  All those worlds I left behind me
                  D                                                    A      
    D
             Praying they would never find me and my freedom
                              A                                     
             But if they stood right here beside me
             D                                                            A   
   D
             They would never recognize me for all that she's done

                       D
             Once happiness was only
                           E
             Whenever I was on my own
                           D
             So now why do I feel lonely
                    E
             Any time that I'm alone

             REPEAT CHORUS

             (ONE MEASURE EACH)
SOLO:  A     D        A            E

            A     D        A            E

                E                      D                          
             No, they've never built a wall that high
                       E
             Or made a chain that strong
                       D                             
             And God ain't never made a place 
                    E
             I felt like I belong
       
             REPEAT CHORUS
