Western Stars 


Mim Fa Mim Fa Sol Sol4

                Mim
I wake up in the morning
Fa                       Sol Sol4 Sol
just glad my boots are on
                        Mim
Instead of empty in the whispering grasses
Fa                        Sol
down the Five at Forest Lawn
                       Mim
On the set, the makeup girl brings me
Fa                          Sol   Sol4 Sol
two raw eggs and a shot of gin
                      Mim
Then I give it all up for that little blue
               Fa
pill that promises to bring it
              Sol4 Sol
all back to you again
             Do
Ride me down easy
Fa                  Sol  Sol4 Sol
ride me down easy, friend
            Mim
Tonight the western stars
   Fa                Sol
are shining bright again
                         Mim
Here in the canyons above Sunset
Fa                             Sol     Sol4 Sol
the desert don't give up the fight
                           Mim
A coyote with someone's Chihuahua
                       Fa
in its teeth skitters 'cross
            my veranda in the night
                         Mim
Some lost sheep from Oklahoma sips her Mojito
Fa                      Sol   Sol4 Sol
down at the Whiskey Bar
                              Mim
Smiles and says she thinks she remembers me
      Fa                           Sol
from that commercial with the credit card
                             Do
Hell, these days there ain't no more
Fa                  Sol
now there's just again
            Mim
Tonight the western stars
    Fa                Sol
are shining bright again

Mim Fa Sol Sol4
                         Mim
Some days I take my El Camino
Fa                       Sol Sol4 Sol
throw my saddle in and go

                             Mim
East to the desert where the charros
Fa                    Sol
they still ride and rope
             Do                  Fa
Our American brothers cross the wire
                             Sol
and bring the old ways with them
            Mim
Tonight the western stars
   Fa                Sol
are shining bright again

Do  Fa Sol Sol4 Mim Fa Sol Sol4

                   Mim
Once I was shot by John Wayne
Fa                         Sol
yeah, it was towards the end
                       Mim
That one scene's bought me a thousand drinks
Fa                        Sol     Sol4 Sol
set me up and I'll tell it for you, friend
              Do
Here's to the cowboys
Fa                   Sol
riders in the whirlwind
            Mim
Tonight the western stars
Fa                Sol
are shining bright again
        Mim
And the western stars
Fa                Sol
are shining bright again

                      Do             Fa
Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered
                    Sol
in the Santa Ana winds
        Mim
And the western stars
Fa                Sol
are shining bright again
                       Do
C'mon and ride me down easy
Fa                   Sol
ride me down easy, friend
                   Mim
'Cause tonight the western stars
Fa                Sol   Solsus2 Sol
are shining bright again

               Mim
I woke up this morning
Fa                        Sol Sol4 Sol
just glad my boots were on
