[Verse 1]
  Em                                    Am                  Em
A one-eyed Jack rode to Monterey in the heat of the blazing sun.
     C                     Em           B7                  Em
When Sheriff Longworth saw Kid Rio, he strapped on his fast gun.
    Em                                             Am              Em
The sheriff didn't trust the one eyed Jack nor the deadly smile he wore.
    C                  Em                 B7                   Em
An' when that night he shamed Louisa, in vengeance the sheriff swore.

[Chorus]
  Em                   C         D                  Em
Beware of the one-eyed Jacks, especially if they're wild.
Em                                        B7
One-eyed Jacks are deadly, even when they smile.
Em            Am                     Em
Never trust a one-eyed Jack with his cold, cold heart of stone.
Em                                         B7
He will only show one side to you, for his soul is the devil's own.

[Break]  
D  C  Em  Em  x2          
   
[Verse 2]
    Em                                         Am              Em
Ten cracks of the sheriff's whip cut deep. The pain-filled Rio cursed.
      C               Em               B7              Em
"You'd better kill me while you can or I will get you first."
    Em                                           Am                    Em
The angry sheriff raised his gun butt high, then smashed Rio's trigger hand.
        C                 Em                      B7            Em
"You're done for now, you one-eyed Jack, you will kill no other man."

[Chorus]
  Em                   C         D                  Em
Beware of the one-eyed Jacks, especially if they're wild.
Em                                        B7
One-eyed Jacks are deadly, even when they smile.
Em            Am                     Em
Never trust a one-eyed Jack with his cold, cold heart of stone.
Em                                         B7
He will only show one side to you, for his soul is the devil's own.

 D  C  Em  Em  x2  

[Verse 3]
    Em                                        Am                Em
The creaky iron doors slammed shut tight. The one-eyed Jack was jailed.
     C                Em                   B7                Em
With Louisa's help he soon escaped for his true love had not failed.
    Em                                         Am               Em
The horses rode off with the lovers two as the smokin' six guns burst.
    C                            Em                     B7                 Em
The sheriff aimed his gun at the one-eyed Jack, but the one-eyed Jack shot first.

[Chorus]
  Em                   C         D                  Em
Beware of the one-eyed Jacks, especially if they're wild.
Em                                        B7
One-eyed Jacks are deadly, even when they smile.
Em            Am                     Em
Never trust a one-eyed Jack with his cold, cold heart of stone.
Em                                         B7
He will only show one side to you, for his soul is the devil's own.
