************ THE LAST COWBOY SONG ************ performed by Waylon Jennings Kris Kristofferson Johnny Cash Willie Nelson Chorus (all together): D This is the last cowboy song G The end of a hundred year waltz A The voices sound sad as they're singing along D Another piece of America is lost Verse 1:(Waylon Jennings) D He rides the feed lots,works in a market A On weekend selling tobacco and beer He dreams of tommorrow surrounded by fences D But he'll dream tonight of when fences weren't here Verse 2:(Kris Kristofferson) D He blazed the trail with Lewis and Clark A And eyeball to eyeball old Wyatt backed down He stood shoulder to shoulder with Travis in Texas D And rode with the Seventh when Custer went down Chorus. Verse 3:(Willie Nelson) D Remington showed us how he looked on canvas A And Louis Lamour told us his tale Me and Johnny and Waylon and Kris sing about him D And wish to God we could have ridden his trail Verse 4:(spoken-Johnny Cash) and the three others sing the chorus. D The old chisom trail is covered in concrete G They truck it to market in fifty foot rigs A They roll by his graveside and don't even notice D Like living and dieing was all he ever did Chorus. Thanks to David M. Potter for the lyrics.
