[Intro]

Am

Am                      Em
He lay face down in the desert sand
Am                           G
Clutching his six-gun in his hand
C                   G
Shot from behind, I thought he was dead
Am            G            C
But under his heart was an ounce of lead
F                             C
But a spark still burned so I used my knife
Am                    Em        
And late that night I saved the life of Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo . . .)

Am                    Em
I nursed him till the danger passed
Am                   G
The days went by, he mended fast
C                   G
Then from dawn till setting sun
Am           G         C
He practiced with that deadly gun
F                   C
And hour on hour I watched in awe
Am                   Em
No human being could match the draw of Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                  Em
One day we rode the mountain crest
Am                  G   
And I went east and he went west
C                 G
I took to law and wore a star
Am              G      C   
While he spread terror near and far
F                      C
With lead and blood he gained such fame
Am                           Em
All throughout the West they feared the name of Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                 Em
I knew someday I'd face the test
Am                    G
Which one of us would be the best
C                   G
And sure enough the word came down
Am          G        C
That he was holed up in the town
F                    C
I left the posse out in the street
Am              Em
And I went in alone to meet Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                     Em
They said my speed was next to none
Am                    G
But my lightning draw had just begun
C                         G
When I heard a blast that stung my wrist
Am           G      C
The gun went flying from my fist
F                 C
And I was looking down the bore
Am            Em
Of the deadly .44 of Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                    Em
They say that was the only time
Am              G
That anyone had seen him smile
C                     G
He slowly lowered his gun and then
Am         G         C
He said to me "We're even, friend"
F                C
And so at last I understood
Am                     Em
That there was still a spark of good in Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                    Em
I blocked the path of his retreat
Am                     G
He turned and stepped into the street
C                 G
A dozen guns spit fire and lead
Am        G     C 
A moment later, he lay dead
F                 C
The town began to shout and cheer
Am                       Em
Nowhere was there shed a tear for Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )

Am                      Em
The story spread throughout the land
Am                 G
That I had beaten Ringo's hand
C                   G
And it was just the years, they say
Am           G      C
That made me put my guns away
F                     C
But on his grave they can't explain
Am                  Em
The tarnished star above the name of Ringo
Am
(Ringo... Ringo... )
(Ringo... Ringo... )
