Intro + Main Fill (Twice)


         G6sus
Well I'm sittin' down in San Anton'

              Dmaj7
Waiting on an eight o'clock train

   G6sus
My woman left me here last night

                  Dmaj7
Things ain't been quite the same

       G6sus
I gotta get back to Dallas

            Dmaj7
And tie up a few loose ends

          G6sus
I'm gonna work a week make a hundred dollars

               Dmaj7
Aw and hit the road again

            G
So I don't want you to think


That you're the first one

           Dmaj7
To leave me out here on my own

           G                  F#m
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time

     Em      A            Dmaj7      G6sus + Main
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

    G6sus
Now honey I've been a fool but a bigger fool

                 Dmaj7
I can't remember when I've been

       G6sus
Just to open up my heart

           Dmaj7
And let you walk right in

     G6sus
Now there's one thing in this life

      Dmaj7
Ain't hard for me to do

         G6sus
That's as soon as I kiss the lips of another woman

          Dmaj7
I'm gonna forget all about you

            G
So I don't want you to think


That you're the first one

           Dmaj7
To leave me out here on my own

        G                  F#m
No this ain't gonna be the first time

     Em      A            Dmaj7       G6sus + Main
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone


Solo: Verse chords + Main Riff (Twice)

       G6sus
If you wrote all the woman's names down I know

           Dmaj7
And let me pick one out

        G6sus
I don't think there'd be one in the whole bunch

             Dmaj7
Aw I'd give a hoot about

            G
So I don't want you to think


That you're the first one

               Dmaj7
To leave this ol' boy out here on his own

           G                  F#m
Cause this ain't gonna be the first time

     Em      A            Dmaj7
This ol' cowboy spent the night alone

        G                  F#m
No this ain't gonna be the first time

About the artist behind This Ol Cowboy 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.
