[Intro]   
G      Em       C/G    G   
G      Cadd9      Em   D        G         
   
[Verse]  
G                                             Em C/G            G 
I am far away from home   -     With neither faaaaaaamily nor friends
G       Cadd9             Em                 D           G
I never meant to stay so long   -    In the Missouri borderlands

 G                                          Em C/G                   G
Three years ago I held a job   -    Saw the woooooorld from my pony sway
G       Cadd9           Em                      D                  G
Riding drag on a dusty mount   -    I knew I'd worked when I drew my pay
 
 G                                                             Em C/G                  G
But times got hard, Christ times got mean    -     And I fell iiiiiiiin with desperate men
G       Cadd9               Em                       D           G
And one night the worst of them   -    Laid out what was an awful plan 
 
[Break]         
G      Em       C/G    G   
G      Cadd9      Em   D        G                 
          
[Verse]
G                                                   Em C/G            G 
I did not like such wicked talk    -      Of Murder aaaaaaaand bold robbery
G           Cadd9         Em                        D               G
I told those men I would walk   -     And they all aimed their guns at me
 
G                                                  Em C/G            G 
Their prisoner I helped rob a bank     -  And much gooooold we did obtain
G           Cadd9             Em                           D                 G
They shot a boy just for the sport      -      I stood and watched his young life wane

G                                                             Em   C/G            G 
Such dreadful sounds I'd never heard     -      His mother’s waaaaailing filled the room
G            Cadd9                Em                       D                G
She looked at me and screamed these words     -      Devil take you to your doom

[Break]      
G      Em       C/G    G   
G      Cadd9      Em   D        G                 
     
[Verse]
G                                                      Em C/G            G 
I turned to face that murderous crew    -     Shot ‘em dead.   I killed all four
G       Cadd9        Em                      D              G
And the only thing I rue    -    I Had not thought of that before

G                                                       Em C/G            G 
The posse  found me outside of town    -      As I was kneeeling there to pray
G               Cadd9            Em                  D             G
From my gallows high I'm to lay down    -       In a dark Missouri grave

G                                                            Em C/G            G 
Please hide the rope stains around my neck    -      When my mooother sees me dead
G            Cadd9            Em                          D                G
Please don’t let my brothers take    -      The faithful path I chose to tread
G                                                   Em C/G          G 
Gause im far away from home    -      With neither faaaaamily nor friends
G       Cadd9            Em                      D          G
I never meant to stay so long     -      In the Missouri borderlands 
G            Cadd9          Em                   D           G
And now I'll spend eternity     -       In the Missouri borderlands
