Verse 1: G D C G The Nashville friends think Iâm strange to make my home out on the range D C D Think itâs nothinâ but a God forsaken land G D C G Why donât you bring your guitar and family move on down to Tennesse D C Well, I just smile because they donât understand C D But if they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain morninâ G D C Watched those cotton candy clouds roll by D G Theyâd know why I live beneath these Western Skies Verse 2: I got peace of mind and elbow room I love the smell of sage in bloom Catch a rainbow on my fishinâ line We got county fairs and rodeos, ainât a better place for my kids to grow Just turn Îem loose in the western summer time And if you ever held your woman on a summerâs evening While the prairie moon was blazinâ in her eyes Youâd know why I live beneath these Western Skies Bridge: Em D C D You ainât lived until youâve watched those Northern Lights Em D C Set around the campfire and hear the coyotes call at night D Makes you feel alright Verse 3: So guess Iâll stay right where Iâm at, wear my boots and my cowboy hat But Iâll come and see ya once in a while Iâll bring my guitar and sing my songs, sorry if I donât stay too long I love Tennessee but ya know itâs just not my style I gotta be where I can see those Rocky Mountains Ride my horse and watch an eagle fly I gotta live my life and write my songs beneath these Western Skies When I die you can bury me beneath these Western Skies, Yippee Yi
