Mommas Don't Let your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys
by: Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings

Tabbed By JerseyRock!!!   ENJOY !!!

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


Chorus:
D                                          G
Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be Cowboys
      A7                           
don't let'em pick guitars and drive'em old trucks
                                  D
let'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
                                           G
Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be Cowboys
             A7
cause the'll never stay home and they're always alone
                       D
even with someone they love.



Key Change

E                                                    A
Cowboys like smoky old pool rooms and clear mountain mornins
B7                                                E
little warm puppies and children and girls of the night
E                                                      
Them that don't know him won't like them and them that do 
A
sometimes won't know how to take him.
B7
He aint wrong he's just different but his pride wont let him
                                 E
do things to make you think he's right


Chorus:
E                                          A
Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be Cowboys
      B7                           
don't let'em pick guitars and drive'em old trucks
                                  E
let'em be doctors and lawyers and such.
                                           A
Mammas don't let your Babies grow up to be Cowboys
             B7
cause the'll never stay home and they're always alone
                       E
even with someone they love.
