Gyp-sies danced a-round the camp-fire. Shook their tam-bor-ines.
          Em                                    C
They were wait-ing for the ghost of an out-law, Sun-down was his name.
       Em                                  C
As the mid-night hour drew clos-er and the sky began to fall.
          Em
You could see his sha-dow in the light of the moon.
   C
He heard the gyp-sies ca--ll.

She had hair as black as dark-ness. Her eyes were em-er-ald green.
        Em                              C
Oh, her voice was soft and ten-der. And oooh, she loved to sing.
         Em                                C
She will sing no more or dance a-gain, and shake her tam-bor-ines.
          Em
They have tak-en her away, she's dead and gone.
          C                 Em
You could hear the gyp-sies sing.

        Em                        C
Sil-ver dev-ils in his hol-sters. Stars strapped to his heels.
          Em                              C
There was fire in his eyes, they say that he was dressed to kill.
       Em                             C
He had hands as fast as light-ning. A heart as cold as steel.
       Em
He had come for the one who took her life.
   C               Em
To lie him in boot-hill.

Your missing an Am chord, the harmony guitar in the intro and outro is incorrect, and large parts of the main solo are wrong.
