Cowboy Take Me Away

Dixie Chicks

 

/ C – G - / x3

/ Em – D - /

(repeat)

 

                     Em    D/F#  G

I said I wanna touch the earth

                 Em   D/F#  G
I wanna break it in my hands

                  Em  D/F#      G             D
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

                Em     D/F#         G
I wanna sleep on the hard ground

           Em     D/F#      G
In the comfort of your arms

         Em    D/F#  G
On a pillow of bluebonnets

         D
In a blanket made of stars
        C         G          D
Oh it sounds good to me I said

CHORUS:

             G     Am7  D
Cowboy take me away

                       Em                       C               D
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
             G   Am7  D

Set me free oh I pray

              Em                       C               D 
Closer to heaven above and closer to you

 

closer to you

 

Intro Progression (no repeat)

 

 

 

 


               Em    D/F#  G

I wanna walk and not run

               Em    D/F#  G
I wanna skip and not fall

               Em    D/F#  G
I wanna look at the horizon

                     D
And not see a building standing tall

             Em    D/F#  G
I wanna be the only one

        Em    D/F#  G
For miles and miles

     Em       D/F#   G
Except for maybe you

            D
And your simple smile

        Em         C         D 
Oh it sounds good to me

           Em         C         D 
Yes it sounds so good to me

Chorus

Em  C  D x4

 

                     Em    D/F#  G

I said I wanna touch the earth

                 Em   D/F#  G
I wanna break it in my hands

                  Em               D/F#        G
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
        C         G          D
Oh it sounds good to me

Chorus

 

Em C D x4
