When we were just beginning, it was such an easy way.
Laying back up in the mountains, making love for sunny days.
She got tired of picking daisies and cooking my meals for me.
She can live the life she wants to, yes, it's all right with me.

I think I'd rather be a cowboy.
I think I'd rather ride the range.
I think I'd rather be a cowboy

Than to lay me down in love and lady's chains.


A          Asus4       G         D
I'd rather live on the side of a mountain 
     A              Asus4      G            D      D*7fr - A/D - G/D
Than wander through canyons of concrete and steel.
A*5fr            D        G               D
I'd rather laugh with the rain and the sunshine 
    C   G6/B Am G  F#   F  E           A - Asus4
And lay down my sundown in some starry field.

But I miss her in the morning when I wake alone;
The absence of her laughter is a cold and empty sound.
But her memory always makes me smile and I want you to know,
I love her, yes, I love her, just enough to let her go.

I think I'd rather be a cowboy.
I think I'd rather ride the range.
I think I'd rather be a cowboy
Than to lay me down in love and lady's chains.

I think I'd rather be a cowboy.
I think I'd rather ride the range.
I think I'd rather be a cowboy
Than to lay me down in love and lady's chains.

(Words and music by John Denver, 1973)
