Verse 1
[AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
An old cowboy went riding out one
[CMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Third
]
dark and windy day,
Up- [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
on a ridge he rested as he went along his way,
When [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw,
A- [FMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Sixth
]
plowin' through the ragged sky, and
[DmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Fourth
]
up a cloudy
[AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
draw,
Their [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
brands were still on fire and their
[CMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Third
]
hooves were made of steel,
Their [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel,
A [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky,
For he [FMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Sixth
]
saw the riders coming hard, and he
[DmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Fourth
]
heard their mournful
[AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
cry.

Verse 2
Their [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their
[CMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Third
]
shirts all soaked with sweat,
He's [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
ridin' hard to catch that herd but he ain't caught them yet,
Cause they've [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
got to ride forever on that range up in the sky,
On [FMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Sixth
]
horses snortin' fire, as they
[DmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Fourth
]
ride on, hear them
[AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Unison
]
cry.
As the [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)

riders loped on by him, he
[CMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Third

If you [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)

Then [AmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)

]
cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride,
[FMajor Chord (U,M3,P5)
on the Major Sixth
]
Trying to catch the devil's herd, a-
[DmMinor Chord (U,m3,P5)
on the Perfect Fourth
]
cross these endless
