                G                       C                   G
Foggy San Francisco two thousand miles from home
Chasing after a lady I'd like to call my own
          G                                      C
I've been out of work since I left my job on the Bar-K cattle ranch
         Em                     C            D               G
Where my mamma cried, "Think it over, son, before you take a chance."

                                       C                    G
And lord, I sure do miss the folks and all those friends of mine
The city's pretty lonely when a man's just killing time
    G                            C
The people never stop to talk or look you in the eye
        Em                   C                 D            G
And the buildings there they grow so tall they cover up the sky

      D                                     C                G
But I went for a job the other day, the man looked me up and down
          A                                                       D
He said, "You're a horse-riding cowboy who looks like he just hit town
    C                  G       D                     Em
But if you can swing a rope, I reckon you can ring a bell
         G                   C                     D                  G 
And if a bucking bronc can't throw you off, you'll hold the curves as well


G                                                  C               G
Well, I didn't know what he was getting at 'til he took me to this barn
A great big place with high brick walls, not like down on the farm
  G                               C
Instead of hay and horses, it had cement, steel and tar
          Em               C             D                     G
He said, "Hop on board and let me see if you can drive a cable car"

         D                               C            G
Well, it looked like a little house with windows all around
  A                                                 D
A little room set on the back and steps down to the ground
  C                    G           D               Em
A roof and a porch and benches and wheels set on a track
    G                 C                    D               G
I'd never seen such a doggone thing, but I didn't tell him that

   C               G                 D            G
So mamma don't you worry, things are really going fine
    C                G               D
I'm working now as a brakeman on the California Line
        G                                   C            Em
And the folks are mighty friendly when they hop on for a ride
    G                  C              D               G
And when it's cold and rainy, my lady loves to ride inside

                                            C                 G
You can say I'm still a cowboy, it's just a different horse I ride
I round up strays on the city streets and I spend my days outside
      G                             C
These hills of San Francisco are my own West Texas plains
    Em                     C                D             G
And ringing a bell is like singing to those dogies on the range
