There is a young cowboy he lives on the range His horse and his cattle are his only companions
Bm G .D F#m G 0 A Em7 A He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon Waiting for summer his pastures to change

G A7sus4 D Bm G D A

And as the moon rises he sits by his fire thinking about women and glasses of beer

G A7sus4 0 Bm G 0

And closing his eyes as the doggies retire he sings out a song which is soft but it's dear

E7sus4 E7 A7sus4 A7

As if maybe someone could hear

Goodnight you moonlight ladies Rock-a-bye sweet baby James

A song that they sing of their home in the sky maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
