Am D7/F#
He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Trail
Em E Am
At six months old he'd done three months in jail
Am D/F#
He robbed a bank in his diapers and his little bare baby feet
Em E Am
All he said was "Folks, my name is Outlaw Pete."

C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
G
I'm Outlaw Pete!
Am D7/F#
Can you hear me?

Am D/F#
At twenty-five a mustang pony he did steal
Em E Am
And they rode around and 'round on heaven's wheel
Am D/F#
Father Jesus, I'm an outlaw killer and a thief
Em E Am
And I slowed down on Lee and I saw my grief (???)

C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
G
I'm Outlaw Pete!
Am D7/F#
Can you hear me?

F C
He cut his trail of tears across the countryside
G D (w/Kiss fill) E
And where he went, women wept and then died

Am D7/F#
One night he woke from a vision of his own death
Em E Am
Saddled his pony and rode her deep into the West
Am D7/F#
Married a Navajo girl and settled down on the ranch (???)
Em E
And as the snow fell he held their beautiful daughter to his
Am
chest

C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
G
I'm Outlaw Pete!
Am
Can you hear me?
D7/F#
Can you hear me?
C Cadd9 Csus2 C Fmaj7 F6 F Fmaj7 Am F
Can you hear me?

C F Am F

F C
Out of the East on an Irish stallion came Bounty Hunter Dan
G Am

His heart quickened and burned by the need to get his man
F
He found Pete peacefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun
C
and got the draw???
Am D
He said, "Pete, you think you've changed, but you have not."

(instr w/Kiss riff)
F E

Am
He cocked his pistol, pulled the trigger and shouted "let it
D7/F#
start!"
Em E
Pete drew a knife from his boot, threw it and pierced him
Am
through the heart
Am D7/F#
Dan smiled as he lay in his own blood dying in the sun
Em E
And whispered in Pete's ear, "We cannot undo these things
Am
we've done."

C
You're an Outlaw Pete!
G
You're an Outlaw Pete!
Am
Can you hear me?
D/F#
Can you hear me?
E
Can you hear me?

Am D7/F#
For forty days and nights Pete rode and did not stop
Em E Am
Till he sat high upon an icy mountain top
Am D7/F#
He watched a hawk on a desert ??? slip and slide
Em E Am
Moved to the edge and dug his spurs deep into his pony's side

C Am C Am G Am G F E Am

Am D7/F#
Some say Pete and his pony vanished over the edge
Em E Am
Some say they remain frozen high upon that icy ledge
Am D7/F#
A young Navajo girl washes in the river, skin so fair
Em E Am
And braids a piece of Pete's buckskin chaps into her hair

C
Outlaw Pete!
G
Outlaw Pete!
Am
Can you hear me?
D7/F#
Can you hear me?
E
Can you hear me?
Am
Can you hear me?
D7/F#
Can you hear me?
C F
Can you hear me?
Am F
Can you hear me?
C F
Can you hear me?
Am F
Can you hear me?
C F
Can you hear me?
Am F
Can you hear me?
C F
Can you hear me?
Am F C
Can you hear me?

Great Job Thanks! To correct a few words you ? (it's I only "slow down to sow my grief") ( "settled down on the Rez", like reservation) ("got the drop")
