Front Row Cowboy
G C G On Saturday mornings I'd ride to the movies, C G C D Booted and spurred on my horse made of tin G C G Tie-up my cyi-use outside on the pavement Eric Bogle 'Front Row Cowboy' #Chorded by Shawn and Andrew Prest C G D G Lay down my sixpence and mosey on in. D C G I'd sit in the front row with the other young cowboys D C G Waitin' for Roy to appear on the screen D C G Waitin' for Roy and his golden horse Trigger, C G D G To carry me off into my favorite dream. Chorus: G C G Roy Rogers, Roy Rogers, Oh you were my hero, C G C D A man made of steel on a horse made of gold G C G Together we rode through the days of my childhood C G D G Memories like heroes, they never grow old. G C G Together we rode over mountains and valleys C G C D Camped out a night 'neath the wide prairie sky, G C G We'd sing cowboy songs as we sat by the campfire C G D G While out in the darkness a wild coyote cried D C G Yi-pi-tie-yi-yo baked beans and coffee, D C G Tall tales and true as we sat by the fire D C G Then up in the morning and away we'd go riding. C G D G Two gay caballeros, two heroes for hire. G C G And now I'm a man, and I've hung up my six-gun C G C D No more do I ride on a horse made of tin. G C G Now I ride subways, and freeways and railways, C G D G Instead of a six-gun I now wield a pen. D C G But part of my heart will always be ridin' D C G Along the bright canyons and the wild forest ways D C G Along with Roy Rogers my faithful companion, C G D G Into the sunset of my childhood days. Eric Bogle 'Front Row Cowboy' Chorus: G C G Roy Rogers, Roy Rogers, Oh you were my hero, C G C D A man made of steel on a horse made of gold G C G Together we rode through the days of my childhood C G D G Memories like heroes, they never grow old. G C He was my friend, yes, he was my friend. D G He never let me down. G C He was honest and faithful right up to the end D C G I loved Roy Rogers 'cause he was my friend.
