G                                           C

I knew the stakes were high right from the start

D                   D7             G

When she dealt the cards I bet my heart

                                      C

Now I just found a game that I can't play



    

     D                        D7    G

And this is where the cowboy rides away

                                          C

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun

D                        D7       G

Setting on the things I wish I'd done

                                   C

It's time to say goodbye to yesterday

     D                  D7          G

And this is where the cowboy rides away

G                                      C

We've been in and out of love and in between

     D               D7             G

And now we play the final showdown scene

                                          C

As the credits roll a sad song starts to play

     D                        D7    G

And this is where the cowboy rides away

                                          C

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun

D                        D7       G

Setting on the things I wish I'd done

                                           C

Oh, the last goodbye's the hardest one to say

     D                  D7          G

And this is where the cowboy rides away

                                           C

Oh, the last goodbye's the hardest one to say

D                   D7          G

This is where the cowboy rides away
