Thin Lizzy - Cowboy Song guitar tab

Thin Lizzy, "Cowboy Song"
From: (Mr Stephen Peacock - PG)

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

The chord pattern is as follows :

	G#   Cm   Fm   F 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 [F & D#] may 
actually by 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.

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

   C# power chord =	e	X
			B	X
			G	X
			D	6
			A	4
			E	X

          (4)                   (3)                  (1)         (8)(6)
          G#                    Cm                   Fm           F  D#

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 string at the end of the tab may actually be an 11 if 
my memory is foggy - try it out and correct as necessary.

The Lemming

=== Note =
I always played this with the guitar down a semitone, and using the
sequence A E F#m E D.
