[INTRO] D
[VERSE]
D                           G
Her telephone rang 'bout a quarter to nine
D                           A                G
She heard his voice on the other end of the line
G                       A
She wondered what was wrong this time
D                       G
She never knew what his calls might bring
        D                       A
With a cowboy like him it could be anything
        G                     A                       D  A
And she always expected the worst in the back of her mind.


D                                  G
He said, "It's cold out here and I'm all alone,
D                                 A               G
I didn't make the short go again and I'm coming home.
                  A
I know I've been away too long.
D                        G
I never got a chance to write or call
D                              A
And I know this rodeo has been hard on us all
         G                  A                         D
But I'll be home soon and honey is there something wrong?"

[CHORUS]
G                          A
She said, "Don't bother comin' home.
          Bm     A              G
By the time you get here I'll be long gone.
           D                 A                  G A
There's somebody new and he sure ain't no rodeo man."
G                          A
He said, "I'm sorry it's come down to this.
        Bm       A              G
There's so much about you that I'm gonna miss.
     D                          A                      G
But it's alright baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne.
      D                   A                       G
Gotta go now baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne.

[INSTRUMENTAL] G A

[VERSE]
D                           G
He left that phone danglin' off the hook
D                              A                  G
Then slowly turned around and gave it one last look
G                     A
Then he just walked away
D                               G
He aimed his truck toward that Wyoming line
D                                  A
With a little luck he could still get there in time
G                     A                             D
And in that Cheyenne wind he could still hear her say.

[CHORUS]
G                          A
She said, "Don't bother comin' home.
          Bm     A              G
By the time you get here I'll be long gone.
           D                 A                  G A
There's somebody new and he sure ain't no rodeo man."
G                          A
He said, "I'm sorry it's come down to this.
        Bm       A              G
There's so much about you that I'm gonna miss.
     D                          A                      G
But it's alright baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne.
      D                   A                       G
Gotta go now baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne.
