Cowgirl in the Sand

 

written by Neil Young

E                    C#m   E                      C#m                                
Hello cowgirl in the sand  is this place at your command 
E     B         A     B     E     B        A           B
Can I stay here for  awhile can I see your sweet sweet smile
F#m G#m           E           A
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E       A
When so many love you is it the same 
         F#m                                 E         A
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
E                 C#m   E                      C#m
Hello ruby in the dust  has your band began to rust 
E     B       A         B   E     B           A         B
After all the sin we've had I was hoping that we'd turn back 
F#m G#m           E           A
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E       A
When so many love you is it the same 
         F#m                                 E         A
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
E                 C#m    E                      C#m
Hello woman of my dreams is this not the way it seems
E      B          A         B 
Purple words on a gray back ground
E       B            A          B
To be a woman and to be turned down 
F#m G#m           E           A
Old enough now to change your name
     F#m     G#m         E      A
When so many love you is it the same 
         F#m                                 E         A      E   C#m  E       
It's the woman in you that makes you want to play this game
