INTRO: G  C  G  C

                  G                           Em
Break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad
                     Am                        Dsus4   D
When you see my baby sister, be as kind as you can
                   G                      Em
Break it to my grandma, said that boy's wild and bad
                   Am
Break it to them gently when you tell 'em
       D                        G
That I won't be coming home again

          C                                            G
Cause I'm runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
 C                                                    G
Fightin' for my life and I don't know if I'll make it alone
 C                                            G
Runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
               Em                     G
God I wanna go home, lord I wish I was home

C  G  C

                 G                           Em
When you see my lady with the twinkle in her eyes
                Am                         Dsus4  D
Tell it to her softly and hold her if she cries
                  G                         Em
Tell her that I love her and I will till the day I die
                Am
Tell it to her gently when you tell her
         D                     G
That I won't be coming home again

D                       G
I got in too deep with strangers
D                                  G
Thinkin' they could help me find my way
C                       G
Nobody warned me of the dangers
          Em                                     Am   D
And it's always the young and foolish that have to pay

                    G                      Em
So break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad
                  Am                                Dsus4   D
Thank them for the good years and all the lovin' that I had
                G                           Em
Break it to my grandma who said the boy is wild and bad
                 Am
Break it to them gently when you tell them
       D                    G
That I won't be coming home again

   C                                             G
I'm runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
C                                                       G
Fightin' for my life and I don't know if I'll make it alone
C                                            G
Runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
              Em                         G
Lord I wanna go home, lord I wanna go home

                           C
You gotta break it to them gently
                     G
Break it to them gently
                                 C
You gotta break it to them gently
                        G
Gotta really try to roll 'em
                                    C
You gotta break it to them gently
                        G
Gotta really try to sooth them
                      C
Gotta really try to sooth them
                        G
Gotta really try to roll them
                        C
You gotta roll it to my mother
                    G
Gotta roll it to my grandma, gotta roll the old lady
C
Roll it to my mother
G
Roll it to my mother and roll the old lady
C
Roll it to my grandma
       G
She's damn near eighty, roll the old lady
C
Roll it to my mother
G
Roll it to my mother, gotta roll the old lady
C
Roll it to my mother
   G
My sister and my mother and roll the old lady
C
Roll it to my grandma
      G
She's damn near eighty, roll the old lady...

All 3 versions here are just a paste and copy of each other then using a capo or the transpose button or reversing first name with last name.
