Emmylou Harris - Pancho and Lefty



(verse 1)
C                            Gue
Living on the road my friend, is gonna keep you free and clean,sa
F                  oi
Now you wear your skin like iron,
     C                 G
Your breath as hard as kerosene,
F                  oi                       C               F
You weren't your mama's only boy, but her favorite one it seems,
C                         F    C    G
She began to cry when you said goodbye,
    F              Am    G - C
And sank into your dreams,


(verse 2)
C                       G
Pancho was a bandit boys, his horse was fast as polished steel,
F
He wore his gun outside his pants,
    C                       G
For all the honest world to feel,
F                  oi                  C               F
Pancho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico,
C                F  C  G             F                 Am   G - F
Nobody heard his dying words, ah but that's the way it goes,


(chorus)
F                  oi  C                        F
All the Federales say they could have had him any day,
C                 F    C  G        F              Am - G - F
They only let him slip away out of kindness, I suppose,


(verse 3)
C                              G
Lefty, he can't sing the blues all night long like he used to,
F                  oi                 C           G
The dust that Pancho bit down south ended up in Lefty's mouth,
F                  oi                C               F
The day they laid poor Pancho low, Lefty split for Ohio,
C                F     C   G        F             Am - G - F
Where he got the bread to go, there ain't nobody knows,


(chorus)
F                  oi  C                        F
All the Federales say they could have had him any day,
C                 F    C  G        F              Am   G - C
They only let him slip away out of kindness, I suppose,


(verse 4)
C                                  G
Poets tell how Pancho fell, and Lefty's living in a cheap hotel,
F
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold,
C                G
And so the story ends we're told,
F                  oi                      C              F
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but save a few for Lefty too,
C                   F   C  G       F                Am - G - F
He only did what he had to do, and now he's growing old,


Chorus)
F                  oi   C                       F
All the Federales say they could have had him any day,
C                 F    C  G        F              Am - F - G
They only let him slip away out of kindness, I suppose,
F                  oi      C                       F
A few gray Federales say they could have had him any day,
C                  F  C  G              F            Am     
They only let him go so long, out of of kindness, I suppose,
