(Verse 1)

Amaj7              Dmaj7
In the corner of a dark barroom

Amaj7             Dmaj7
Sat an old cowboy singing western tunes

Amaj7                 Dmaj7
Singing songs that he learned as a child

Amaj7             Dmaj7                Amaj7 Dmaj7
All about the West back when it was wild

Amaj7                Dmaj7
He said he came from down Texas way

    Amaj7                  Dmaj7
The cowboys were tough the women the same way

Amaj7             Dmaj7
Said he was a star back in '31

When Hollywood liked him

         Dmaj7                Amaj7 Dmaj7 
For some songs that he had done


Amaj7                Dmaj7   Amaj7  Dmaj7
He's the last of the singing cowboys

Singing songs of desperation and joy

(Verse 2)

Amaj7                   Dmaj7
He took a break just to chug him down some beer

C'mon folks now holler out 

The songs you'd like to hear

   Amaj7            Dmaj7
And if I know one I know a million or two

I'm not just up here playing for me

       Dmaj7           Amaj7 Dmaj7
This is all done for you

Amaj7                       Dmaj7
And then he bragged of the stetson hat that he wore

Amaj7                       Dmaj7
Said it was the finest made since the war

Amaj7                        Dmaj7
And I won this silver buckle ridin' on a cow

Amaj7                  Dmaj7                   Amaj7
As he laughed he said I bet you're wonderin' how


 Amaj7                     Dmaj7   Amaj7
'Cause I'm the last of the singing cowboys

Dmaj7            Amaj7
Singing songs of desperation and joy

(Instrumental break) 

Amaj7  Dmaj7   Amaj7  Dmaj7

(Verse 3)

Amaj7                  Dmaj7
And after three hours or maybe more

Amaj7                      Dmaj7
A lady grabbed his arm and showed him to the door

Amaj7                   Dmaj7
The bartender said he's blind you see

Don't tell him the only audience 

  Dmaj7             Amaj7 
He had was you and me


 Amaj7                      Dmaj7   Amaj7
'Cause he's the last of the singing cowboys

Dmaj7            Amaj7
Singing songs of desperation and joy

         Bm              Amaj7 Dmaj7      Amaj7 Dmaj7

About the artist behind Last Of The Singing Cowboys Chords:

The Marshall Tucker Band is an American Southern rock band originally from Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The band formed in 1972 with founding members Doug Gray (vocalist), George McCorkle (rhythm guitarist ), Paul Riddle (drummer), Jerry Eubanks (flutist), and brothers Toy (lead guitar) and Tommy Caldwell (bassist and front man). They soon signed with Capricorn Records and by 1973, had released their first EP, The Marshall Tucker Band.

Compared to Southern rock pioneers and label-mates The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band had more of a country and western feel, with the flute being a key lead instrument in their sound with a lot of its parts in the higher fife/piccolo register. "Can't You See", "Fire on the Mountain", and "This Ol' Cowboy" are among their songs that received appreciable FM radio airplay, while "Heard It in a Love Song" made it to #14 as a single on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1977.

Since its inception, the Marshall Tucker Band has suffered three great losses:

Original frontman and bassist, Tommy Caldwell died from injuries in a jeep crash on April 28, 1980. As well as being the front man who worked the crowd, he also sang background vocals and wrote several songs, including "Melody Ann," which was the only song he ever performed lead vocals on.
His brother, guitarist Toy Caldwell, like Doug Gray also a Vietnam veteran, died of heart disease on February 25, 1993. He was the band's lead guitarist and primary songwriter from 1973 - 1983. He also played steel and acoustic guitar. He used his thumb to pick the strings instead of his other fingers or a pick. He sang lead on several songs, including "This Ol Cowboy," and "Blue Ridge Mountain Sky." After leaving Marshall Tucker Band, he formed the Toy Caldwell Band and in 1992 released Toy Caldwell Band, his only solo album.
Founding member, guitarist George McCorkle, died of cancer on June 29, 2007 in Lebanon, Tennessee. He was the band's rhythm guitarist from 1973 - 1983. He also wrote many of the band's songs including "Fire on the Mountain," "Silverado," "Last of the Singing Cowboys," and "Holdin' On To You." In 1999 he released his first solo CD, American Street.
Despite these losses, the Marshall Tucker Band still plays up to 150 shows in a year, and they released a new album entitled "The Next Adventure" in June of 2007 on Ramblin Records. Lead singer Doug Gray is the only original member in the current (2007) lineup.
