8-beat intro. with 3 lead-in notes.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I want to be a cow - boy's sweet - heart,
I want to learn to rope and to ride.
I want to ride o'er the plains and the des - ert,
Out west of the Great Di - vide.
I want to hear the coy - otes howl - in,
While the sun sets deep in the west.
I want to be a cow - boy's sweet - heart,
That's the life I love the best.
I wan - na ride old Paint, go-in' at a run,
I wan - na feel the wind in my face.
A thou - sand miles from the cit - y lights,
Go - in' a cow - boy's pace.
I wan - na pil - low my head near the sleep - in' herd,
While the moon shines down from a - bove.
I wan - na strum my gui - tar and yo - del - ay - hee - hee,
'Cause that's the life I love.
