D                   C                 G   
It's all the same , only the names will change
C         G       F                  D  
And ev'ry day , it seems we're wasting away
D               C                      G
Another place , where the faces are so cold
C             G            F           D
I'd drive all night , just to get back home

Chorus:
C        G        F               D                    
I'm a cowboy , on a steel horse I ride
C         G  F       D 
I'm wanted , dead or alive
C     G  F       D
Wanted , dead or alive


D                   C                   G 
Sometimes I sleep , sometimes is not for days
C             G           F                  D
and people I meet , always go their separate ways
D                            C                     G
Sometimes you tell the day , by the bottle that you drink
C                    G           F             D
And times when you´r alone , and all you do is think

Chorus:
C        G        F               D                    
I'm a cowboy , on a steel horse I ride
C         G  F       D 
I'm wanted , dead or alive
C     G  F       D
Wanted , dead or alive

Solo:
C                    G        F              D 
Ooooh and I'm a cowboy , on a street horse I ride
C                     F       D  
I'm wanted -wanted- , dead or alive


D                          C                        G  
And I walk these streets , a loaded six string on my back
C             G          F                   D
I play for keeps , 'cause I might not make it back
D                    C                 G
I been ev'ry where , still I'm standig tall
C                  G           F              D  
I've seen a milion faces , and I've rock them all

       
C                 G        F             D
'Cause I'm a cowboy , on a steel horse I ride
C         G           F       D     
I'm wanted -wanted- , dead or alive
C               G             F           D
Well I'm a cowboy , I got the night on my side
C          G          F       D  
I'm Wanted -wanted- , dead or alive
C       G       C       G
Dead or Alive , Dead or alive
C       G        F         D
Dead or alive ,I still ride  -still ride-
C       G       C       G
Dead or alive , Dead or alive
C       G       C       G
Dead or alive , dead or alive
C       G 
Dead or alive , Dead or alive

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
