[INTRO]
C


[VERSE]
C
  Living on the road my friend
G
  Was gonna keep you free and clean
F
  Now you wear your skin like iron
         C                 G
  Your breath's as hard as kerosene
 F
  You weren't your mama's only boy
          C                F
  But her favorite one it seems
         Am                   F  Am7  G
  She began to cry when you said goodbye
       F             Am
  And sank into her dreams
 C
  Pancho was a bandit boys
      G
  His horse was fast as polished steel
  F
  Wore his gun outside his pants
      C              G
  For all the honest world to feel
 F
  Pancho met his match you know
         C               F
  On the deserts down in Mexico
Am                 F Am7 G
  Nobody heard his dying words
  F                 Am
  That's the way it goes


[CHORUS]
 F
  All the federales say
 C                        F
  They could have had him any day
Am                  F    Am7 G
  They just let him hang a---round
         F             Am
  Out of kindness I suppose


[VERSE]
 C
  Lefty he can't sing the blues
  G
  All night long like he used to
      F
  The dust that Pancho bit down south
  C           G
  Ended up in Lefty's mouth
      F
  The day they laid poor Pancho low
  C               F
  Lefty split for Ohio
Am                 F     Am7  G
  Where he got the bread to   go
        F            Am
  There ain't nobody knows


[CHORUS]
 F
  All the federales say
 C                        F
  They could have had him any day
Am                  F    Am7 G
  They just let him hang a---round
         F             Am
  Out of kindness I suppose


[INSTRUMENTAL]
F  C  F  Am  F 
Am7  G  F  Am


[VERSE]
C
  The poets tell how Pancho fell
  G
  Lefty's livin' in a cheap motel
      F
  The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold
  C             G
  So the story ends we're told
  F
  Pancho needs your prayers it's true,
      C              F
  But save a few for Lefty too
 Am                   F  Am7 G
  He just did what he had to do
  F                Am
  Now he's growing old


[CHORUS]
 F
  All the federales say
 C                        F
  They could have had him any day
Am                  F    Am7 G
  They just let him hang a---round
         F             Am
  Out of kindness I suppose
    F
  A few gray federales say
 C                        F
  They could have had him any day
 Am                 F    Am7  G
  They just let him slip a----way
         F             Am
  Out of kindness I suppose


[END]
Am
