Tumbling Tumbleweeds

    Prelude:
C                     F              C
I'm a roaming cowboy, riding all day long
G7                    C
Tumbleweeds around me sing their lonely song.
F                           C Cm6 A7
Nights underneath a prairie moon,
D7                      G
I ride alone and sing a tune.
        
Chorus:
F                      F7
See them tumbling down,
E                                 E7
Pledging their love to the ground,
F                       C        C#dim
Lonely but free I'll be found
G7                               C         C+
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

F                           F7
Cares of the past are behind,
E                           E7
Nowhere to go but I'll find
F                         C      C#dim
Just where the trail will wind,
G7                               C         C+
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

Fm6  G7             C           Am6# B7             Em  B7  G7
I know when night has gone that a new world's born at dawn,

F                       F7
I'll keep rolling along,
E                           E7
Deep in my heart is a song,
F                     C      C#dim
Here on the range I belong,
G7                               C     C7  C+
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.
