[Verse 1]
    D7  
If there ever was a way to rate a man
      G7   
On a cowboy scale of one to ten
       A7    
Kinda like you would a women or a chili pepper
  G7      
A one ain’t hot, but a ten’ll stop your ticker
         D7  
It’d be based on courage and attitude
         G7  
Not the band on the hat or the bling on the boot
      A7
Less about the out, more about the within
         G7
On this cowboy scale of one to ten

[Verse 2]
               D7
Now take the pretty boy over at the bar for example
      G7  
His Resistol’s huge and his B.S. is ample
             A7
But I got a feelin’ he’s nev?r stepped in none
            G7  
And on th? cowboy scale that puts him down around a one
                    D7  
Now the guy in the ball cap, the t-shirt, and dirty ol’ jeans
       G7  
Got a dozen gold buckles that you’ll probably never see
           A7  
‘Cause he really don’t give a damn what you think he is
         G7                 D7     
On your cowboy scale of one to ten 

[Chorus]
 G7        D7        A7         D7
Some ride bulls and some ride fences
G7        D7   E7        A7 
Some ride off into that sunset
G7          D7         Bm    A     G   
Some drive cattle and some drive Chevy’s
     E7                   A7   
But they all drive them ladies crazy

[Verse 3]
         D7   
Now the cowgirls, boys, they’re the ones who know
          G7    
The real deal from ol’ Ricky Rodeo
              A7  
Cause let me tell ya fellas, ’til they see you ride
               G7  
They’ll never give you more than a four, maybe five
             D7  
Now not all cowboys hail from the Lonestar state
       G7  
California, Alaska to Canada, eh?
              A7  
I even know a few hippies, long hair and tattoos
      G7                          A7
That sure are some tough mother buckaroos
 
[Chorus]
 G7        D7        A7        D7
Some ride bulls and some ride fences
G7        D7   E7        A7   
Some ride off into that sunset
G7          D7         Bm    A     G      
Some drive cattle and some drive Chevy’s
     E7                  A7
But they all drive them ladies crazy

[Verse 4]
         D7  
So if ya ever took a big ol’ dip of Copenhagen
         G7  
Started barroom brawls or just participated
         A7  
Know a quarter horse can’t be started with a coin
   G7  
Y’ain’t quite there yet, boys, but you’re getting warm
D7                 
....I’ve been around some, and I’d like to say
        G7 
If you really wanna know who’s the real John Wayne
                             A7
Well, that’s the folks who serve and protect this great land
  
And on the cowboy scale
         G7
That’s a top drawer ten
