F
She was paintin' a picture of slum life
A#               C               F
When the cowboy came limpin' by
A#                    C                   F
Wearin' tattered old boots with one sole gone
F                              C
And a far away look in his eye
F
Well, he watched for a while as she painted
A#                                  C          F
And then he said, "Mama you surely paint well
A#                     C              F
Yes, you got all this on your canvas
F                                  C
The dirt the squalor and the hell"
F
Well, she asked to paint him in the setting
A#                         C          F
Ah, but he shook his head slowly and low
        A#             C                F
He said "naw, I won't fit your picture
    A#    C                           F
Un- less you can paint me back home"

[Chorus]
        F                             F7
Can you paint me back home in Wyoming
       A#               C          F
Riding free 'neath the big sky a- bove
A#           C           F
Free as the wind on the prairie
Gm                      C
Out in the hills that I love
  F                           F7
I long to get back to Wyoming
         A#               C            F
And I've hoped all these years that I can
       A#             C            F
Please paint me back home on your canvas
         A#           C        F
Paint me back in Wy- oming a- gain

F                                        F7
Well, I never claimed this festered city
         A#                 C                     F
You know I was raised on a ranch out in the west
A#                      C              F
I spent my young years bustin' horses
                  F                          C
And boy they said I could ride with the best
F                                       F7
So I came here to Madison Square Garden
A#              C         F
To ride in the big rodeo
A#                     C          F
Ah? but I got stepped on and all crippled up
    F                                  C
And chute, bronc bustin' is all I know
F                                           F7
Ah, boy if I could just get back to Wyoming
A#               C        F
I wouldn't feel so alone
A#                       C                    F
Ah, but the pain is too much for the roamin'
   A#              C                  F
So please can you paint me back home

[Chorus]
        F                             F7
Can you paint me back home in Wyoming
       A#               C          F
Riding free 'neath the big sky a- bove
A#           C           F
Free as the wind on the prairie
Gm                      C
Out in the hills that I love
  F                           F7
I long to get back to Wyoming
         A#               C            F
And I've hoped all these years that I can
       A#             C            F
Please paint me back home on your canvas
         A#           C        F
Paint me back in Wy- oming a- gain
