Thin Lizzy chords for Cowboy song

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is the chord pattern and riff as I vaguely remember it from the album "
Live and Dangerous" ....

The chord pattern is as follows :

	A chord diagramG#G#   A chord diagramC minorCm   A chord diagramF minorFm   A chord diagramFF A chord diagramD#D#

These are all barre chords (as I play it), on the following frets
respectively ...  4, 3, 1, 8, 6

(Now, since this comes from memory, the last two chords [A chord diagramFF & A chord diagramD#D#] may
actually by A chord diagramD#D# and C#, but I doubt it - try it with the song and see how it
turns out)

The riff is played simultaneously by two guitars (an octave apart) to give
that distinctive Thin Lizzy sound that has been copied by so many bands (
such as Iron Maidon) [don't flame me, I don't really know who first came up
with this sound]

I have only tabbed the higher riff - work out the lower one yourself - if I
remember rightly, it can be played around a A chord diagramC#C# power chord :

   A chord diagramC#C# power chord =	e	X
			A chord diagramBB	X
			A chord diagramG+G	X
			A chord diagramD MajorD	6
			A chord diagramA augmentedA	4
			A chord diagramE MajorE	X

This TAB transcription was created using TAB MASTER version 1.0

The chord pattern is shown following the riff, with the frets to barre shown
above the chord, in brackets.
The last 10 on the A chord diagramA augmentedA string at the end of the tab may actually be an 11 if
my memory is foggy - try it out and correct as necessary. I'll post an
updated and corrected version of this song when I've checked my records at
home. I will also post some other Thin Lizzy stuff shortly.

I always played this with the guitar down a semitone, and using the
sequence A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramF# minorF#m A chord diagramE MajorE D.

Nice to see a Thin Lizzy TAB here, though.  Brian Downey, last I heard,
was still gigging in Slattery's Bar in Capel Street, Dublin, with
a band called Spirit Nation, and still doing Lizzy stuff.  Any
updates ??
