[Verse 1]
                     Dm                      Am
I'm sittin' on the front porch, cigarette burnin'
                   C                  Bm
Them makers in my coffee sure ain't workin'
           Dm                                Am 
I see the dirt from where his boots used to lay
                C                      Bm
Still phantom pains after a couple of days
                   Dm                     
And I wonder if he ever thought about turnin' around
Em          F               G                    
..Bet he's past El Paso by now

[Chorus]
           C                    Dm
I was his Texaco, a stop just along the road
              Am                    F  
I should’ve known I ain’t his last rodeo
            C                         Dm
I was his blue sky but he’s like the sunrise
             Am                          F
A matter of time before he comes and he goes
                     C                        Dm   
’Til one day you’ll wake up, he’s packin’ up his truck
              Am    G             F#m 
And he don’t even know what he’s after
     F              Fm                    C
But cowboys always find a greener pasture..

[Verse 2]
                            Dm                                  Am
Bet h?'s rollin' through a new town, and she's fallin' for his accent
                            C                              Bm
She don't know that he's a dust cloud, he's beautifully tragic
                  Dm                         Am
He stays for the night but he's gone by the morning
                      C                      G 
Let him move in your life like a Tennessee storm
                            Dm                         
And this shouldn't tear you up, break you down this bad
Em         F                   G
..Lovin' something you never had

[Chorus]
           C                    Dm
I was his Texaco, a stop just along the road
              Am                    F  
I should’ve known I ain’t his last rodeo
            C                         Dm
I was his blue sky but he’s like the sunrise
             Am                          F
A matter of time before he comes and he goes
                     C                        Dm   
’Til one day you’ll wake up, he’s packin’ up his truck
              Am    G             F#m 
And he don’t even know what he’s after
     F              Fm                    C
But cowboys always find a greener pasture..

[Bridge]
C                     A#                              Dm            
..And all that ever mattered, livin' hard and livin' faster
               Dm           Em       C 
Freedom was a dagger to a knife holder
                     A#                                 Dm
There ain't no ever after, you're special then you're shattered
                  Dm      Em         F   G   
****, he's got a way of leavin' his mark..

[Chorus]
           C                    Dm
I was his Texaco, a stop just along the road
              Am                    F  
I should’ve known I ain’t his last rodeo
            C                         Dm
I was his blue sky but he’s like the sunrise
             Am                          F
A matter of time before he comes and he goes
                     C                        Dm   
’Til one day you’ll wake up, he’s packin’ up his truck
              Am    G             F#m 
And he don’t even know what he’s after
     F              Fm                    C
But cowboys always find a greener pasture..

[Outro]
Em     F              Fm              C    
..But cowboys always find a greener pasture
