Song: Badge and Gun

Standard Tuning



Intro: D

Give me my badge and gun
              G             D
Give me the road that I may run
              D                                   A7
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
I've waited all I can
              G            E7
But I'm just not a patient man
               D               D      A7      D    
And I've been hiding here for seven months or so

Hand me down my coat and hat
And grab the winter one at that
     G                           A7
You never know how long I'll be away

Give me my badge and gun
             G                D
Give me the songs that I once sung
Give me those jet-black, kick-back, lay down nights alone
This house is safe and warm
           G                 E7
But I was made to chase the storm
            D                   D      A7     D
Taking the whole world on with big ol' empty arms

Tell my friends I tried my best
That one day I just up and left
       G                      A7
They probably saw it coming anyway

What can I say

Hey, hey

(Instrumental): D G D A7   D G E7 D A7 D

The lock is on the cellar door
I can't remember what it's for
    G                                    A7
I ain't been down those stairs in oh so long
So, so long

(Instrumental): D

Give me my badge and gun
            G               D
Give me the road that I must run
              D                                  A7
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
      D                          G              E7
The copy of your key is hanging where it used to be
                D            A7
Good as you've always been to me
     D              A7
The life I need to lead
     D                   A7                  D      G     D
Is somewhere out there, callin' over those hills

I think you left out a D chord on the following lines:

(Verse 1)
I've waited all I can

(Verse 2)
This house is safe and warm

*Hand me down my COAT AND HAT instead of golden hat.

More accurate than the other version though

Good chords :)

I think he does an A7 progression at the end of each chorus. Nice!
