..........

[Verse 1]
F             C
 Done playing these city boy games
F             C
 Done chasing those red-eye planes
F              C                 G
 And killing myself to reheat a flame
F                 C
 Done wondering who's on his line
F                    C
 And what he's doing with all his time
F                C                   G
 And if I'm good enough for him to be mine

[Pre-Chorus]
       F
I just need a love that's simple
He could wear a stetson or resistol
[Chorus]
          Am
Cause I'm needing, needing, needing
          F                C
Something good down to the core
             Am 
Who keeps it easy, easy, easy
   F                G
To love like Sunday morn'
     Am 
The strong and silent type
          F            C
Who makes me his first choice
               Am
That's why I'm holding, holding, holding
F           C
Out for a cowboy

[Verse 2]
F           C 
 Blue jeans and ridin' his horse
F            C
 Rough hands and a real strong boy
F               C                  G 
Throw in a good woman and he don't need much more
F            C
 God, I know he exists
F            C
So I'll keep on waiting on him
F               C            G
 My salt of the earth, gentleman

[Pre-Chorus]
       F
I need something to last forever
Like boots and good leather

[Chorus]
          Am 
Yeah, I'm needing, needing, needing
          F                C 
Something good down to the core
             Am
Who keeps it easy, easy, easy
   F                G
To love like Sunday morn'
    Am
The strong and silent type
          F            C
Who makes me his first choice
               Am 
That's why I'm holding, holding, holding
F           C
Out for a cowboy

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]
Dm
....Oh, I'll be damned
           Am
Look who's walking up to me and
Dm                   G
....He's even better than he was in my dreams
He must've known

[Chorus]
       Am 
That I needed, needed, needed
        F                c
Someone good down to the core
              Am
Cause he's so easy, easy, easy
   F                G
To love like Sunday mornin'
               Am
Yeah, he's the strong and silent type
         F            C 
He makes me his first choice
         Am 
So worth holding, holding, holding
F           C
Out for a cowboy
         Am
So worth holding, holding, holding
F         C 
Out for cowboy

Am                  F   C
Easy, easy, easy.........
Am   
It was so worth
F                    C
Holding out for a cowboy
