Song: Texas in 1880
Artist: Radney Foster & Pat Green
Transposed by: Eddie Garcia (string50@hotmail.com)

G C Em C

Em
I can hear the wind whisper my name
G
Tellin’ me it’s time to head out again
   D
My horses are trailered and the lights are shutdown
    C
I’m long overdue for headin’ outta town
      Em
Gotta fever that they call the rodeo
G
Just enough winners and make the next show
    D
Sometimes you make eight sometimes you hit dirt
      C
Go on pin another number to the back of my shirt…

(chorus)

         G         D    C
And I’ll ride that pony fast
       G      D        C
Like a cowboy from the past
   G         D        C
Be young and wild and free
     G        D C
Like Texas in 1880
          G        D C
Just like Texas in 1880

Em
Awe, from Phoenix to Tulsa to the Astro Dome
     G
From New York City down to San Antone
        D
There’s boys that are ridin’ for legendary fame
        C
And our money’s all gone but they still ride the same
    Em
Our hearts are getting’ broken

And our heads are getting’ busted
G
We’ll always believe in the things that we trusted
        D
They’ll be those nights when glory comes round
          C
And we’ll tip our hats and wave to the crowd…

(repeat chorus)
(outro)
D
Someday when you’re older someone’ll see
     Em
That buckle hangin’ there on your belt
C
Askin’ just how it felt…

(repeat chorus)


Eddie Garcia
