Cowboy Bill Song Lyrics and Chords by Garth Brooks

 

Cowboy Bill
Recorded by Garth Brooks
Written by Larry Bastian and Ed Berghoff
C 
He told a good story and all of us  
F 
kids 
 
 
C 
listened
 
Bout his life on the border and the way it was  
G7 
then
 
And  
C 
we all believed and when  
F 
he would  
C 
finish
 
We'd ask the old cowboy to  
G7 
tell 'em  
C 
again
 
You could  
Am 
almost hear those  
C 
prairie winds blowin'
 
His  
Am 
saddle a creaking neath his  
C 
old faded jea
G7 
ns
 
You could  
C 
taste the dry dust from the trail  
F 
he was  
C 
ridin'
 
As he sat there and he painted those  
G7 
west Texas  
C 
scenes
 
And the  
F 
grown-ups would tell us you  
C 
boys keep your distance
 
That  
D7 
old man's just tellin' you  
G7 
lies
 
But to  
C 
all of us kids Cowboy  
F 
Bill was a  
C 
hero
 
Just as true as his  
G7 
blue Texas  
C 
sky
 
He told of a time when he rode  
F 
with the  
C 
Rangers
 
Down on the Pecos and he saved the  
G7 
day
 
Out
C 
numbered by plenty they were almost  
F 
to 
 
 
C 
cover
 
With thirty banditos  
G7 
headed their  
C 
way
 
He looked  
Am 
back just in time to  
C 
see a horse stumble
 
The  
Am 
captain went down and Bill pulled  
C 
up on his  
G7 
reins
 
Through a  
C 
flurry of bullets he rescued  
F 
the 
 
 
C 
captain
 
They rode for a sunset just the  
G7 
story 
 
r
C 
emains
repeat #3
 
But I still remember the day  
F 
that it  
C 
happened
 
We waited and we waited but Bill never  
G7 
showed
 
The  
C 
folks at the feed store said they  
F 
hadn't 
 
 
C 
seen 
 
him
 
So we set out for his place down  
G7 
Old Grist Mill  
C 
Road
 
And we  
Am 
cried when we found him lying  
C 
there with his memories
 
The  
Am 
old trunk wide open things  
C 
scattered 
 
 
G7 
about
 
He was  
C 
clutchin' a badge that said  
F 
Texas 
 
 
C 
Ranger
 
And an old yeller letter said  
G7 
Texas is  
C 
proud
 
And those  
F 
grown-ups had told us you  
C 
boys keep your distance
 
That  
D7 
old man's just tellin' you  
G7 
lies
C 
Now they're all sayin' that Cowboy Bill  
F 
was a  
C 
hero
 
Just as true as his  
G7 
blue Texas  
F 
skies
 
Just as  
C 
true as his  
G7 
blue Texas  
C 
skies
