[Intro]   
G      C       Am    F   
C      F       Am        G         
     
C                                             Am F            C 
I am far away from home   -     With neither faaaaaaamily nor friends
C       F                Am                    G           C
I never meant to stay so long   -    In the Missouri borderlands


 C                                          Am F                   C
Three years ago I held a job   -    Saw the woooooorld from my pony sway
C      F               Am                      G                     C
Riding drag on a dusty mount   -    I knew I'd worked when I drew my pay


 C                                                            Am F                    C
But times got hard, Christ times got mean    -     And I fell iiiiiiiin with desperate men
C       F                  Am                        G            C
And one night the worst of them   -    Laid out what was an awful plan 


[Break]         
G      C       Am    F   
C      F       Am        G         
          

C                                                    Am F             C
I did not like such wicked talk    -      Of Murder aaaaaaaand bold robbery
C            F           Am                        G                  C
I told those men I would walk   -     And they all aimed their guns at me


C                                                  Am F             C
Their prisoner I helped rob a bank     -  And much gooooold we did obtain
C           F                Am                            G                      C
They shot a boy just for the sport      -      I stood and watched his young life wane


C                                                            Am F                C 
Such dreadful sounds I'd never heard     -      His mother’s waailing filled the room
C             F                     Am                     G                C
She looked at me and screamed these words     -      Devil take you to your doom


[Break]      
G      C       Am    F   
C      F       Am        G         
     

C                                                      Am F                C
I turned to face that murderous crew    -     Shot ‘em dead.   I killed all four
C        F            Am                   G                C
And the only thing I rue    -      Had not thought of that before


 C                                                      Am F              C
The posse  found me outside of town    -      As I was kneeeling there to pray
C               F             Am                    G            C
From my gallows high I to lay down    -       In a dark Missouri grave


 C                                                            Am F            C
Please hide the rope stains around my neck    -      When my mooother sees me dead
C            F               Am                          G               C
Please don’t let my brothers take    -      The faithful path I chose to tread
C                                                   Am F          C
Cause im far away from home    -      With neither faaaaamily nor friends
C       F                Am                        G           C
I never meant to stay so long     -      In the Missouri borderlands 
C            F          Am                        G           C
And now I'll spend eternity     -       In the Missouri borderlands
