Verse:

(spoken)
Oh Mama, I'm in fear for my life 
from the long arm of the law
Law man has put an end to my running 
and I'm so far from my home
Oh Mama, I can hear you crying 
you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows 
and I don't have very long


Chorus:

C   D   F  G
The jig is up, 

C   D    F  G
the news is out

C    D F G         F
They finally found me

C   D F G
The renegade 

C   D   F  G
who had it made

C D       F   G     F
Retrieved for a bounty

F
Never more to go astray

G
This'll be the end today

       D F G  D F G F   
Of the wanted man

Sounds good! So hard to play that fast on acoustic with full chords! Haha.

Clearly wrong. everything that he lists as a chord are only single notes. and the actual chords are not listed I'm not trying to be mean but this chart is not helpful

This looks like a copy and paste directly from the E-Chords website. And billyryan is correct, these are not chords, but merely notes. I would recommend listening to the song and redoing it.
