She played tamourine with a silver jingle  
        G                                               D 
And she must have known the words to at least a million tunes 
        D                                         Bm 
but the one most requested by the man she knew as Cowboy  
        D                 Bm          A               D 
was the late night benediction at the Y'all come back saloon 
In a voice soft and trembling, she'd sing her song to cowboy  

As a smokey halo circled round her raven hair 

And all the fallen angels and pinball playing rounders 

stopped the games that they'd been playing for the losers evening prayer 

G          D 
Faded love and faded memories  
           G           D 
How they linger in her mind 
          G                               D       Bm 
Miles and years played the cowboy like an old melody  
       E7              A 
out of tune and out of time  
Every night in the shadows thinking back on Amarillo 
He'd dream of better days and ask for Faded Love 
Lifting high his glass in honor of the lady and her song 
He paid his check then lonely walked that broken cowboy home
