Verse 1:
Dm                   G               C
  And the tennis court was covered up
                        F
With some tent-like thing
Dm                          G
  And you asked me to dance
             C                       F
But I said, "dancing is a dangerous game"
Dm       G
  Oh, I   thought
        C                         F
This is gonna be one of those things
Dm      G
  Now I   know
     C                  F
I'm never gonna love again
 
Chorus:
F         C           F     G       F
  I've got some tricks up my sleeve
         C        F      G
Takes one to know one
                     Dm      G
You're a cowboy like   me
 
Verse 2:
                C
Never wanted love
               F
Just a fancy car
Dm                 G
  Now I'm waiting by the phone
          C                      F
Like I'm sitting in an airport bar
 
Chorus:
F        C           F       G       F
  You had some tricks up your sleeve
         C        F      G
Takes one to know one
                       C
You're a cowboy like me
 
Pre-Chorus:
                  F
Perched in the dark
                 G                        C
Telling all the rich folks anything they wanna hear
                  C
Like it could be love
                F
I could be the way forward
              G
Only if they pay for it
                     C
You're a bandit like me
                F
Eyes full of stars
                  G
Hustling for the good life
                   C
Never thought I'd meet you here
             C
It could be love
                 F
We could be the way forward
                 G          C
And I know I'll pay for it
 
Interlude:
Dm       G      C        F
   Ohhh ohhh     Ohhhh ohhhh
Dm       G      C        F
   Ohhh ohhh     Ohhhh ohhhh
F     C      F      G      F     C     F     G
 
Pre-Chorus:
                      C
You're a cowboy like me
                   F
Perched in the dark
                 G                        C
Telling all the rich folks anything they wanna hear
                  C
Like it could be love
                F
I could be the way forward
              G
Only if they pay for it
                     C
You're a bandit like me
                F
Eyes full of stars
                  G
Hustling for the good life
                   C
Never thought I'd meet you here
             C
It could be love
                 F
We could be the way forward
                 G          C
And I know I'll pay for it
 
Bridge:
 
Am              Em                G
  And the skeletons in both our closets
         D                  Am
Plotted hard to f**k this up
                 Em
And the old men that I've swindled
G              D               Am
Really did believe I was the one
                Em                   G
And the ladies lunching have their stories about
   D                       Am
When you passed through town
              Em           G         D
But that was all before I locked it down
 
Verse 3:
Dm              G
  Now you hang from my lips
          C               F
Like the Gardens of Babylon
Dm                   G
  With your boots beneath my bed
   C                       F
Forever is the sweetest con
 
Chorus:
F         C           F     G       F
  I've got some tricks up my sleeve
         C        F      G
Takes one to know one
 
Outro:
                     C        F
You're a cowboy like   me
         G                     C
And I'm never gonna love again
C        F
    .....
     G
I'm never gonna love again
C            G    C     C       F

I'm never gonna love again
