The Byrds     Pretty Boy Floyd   written by Woody Guthrie

G                             C            G
Well gather round children, a story I will tell
       D                      G        C             G
About Pretty Boy Floyd the outlaw, Oklahoma knew him well
G                               C              G
Was in the town of Shawnee on a Saturday afternoon
    D                    G        C              G
His wife beside him in a wagon as into town they rode

fiddle break

G                                    C              G
And along come a deputy sheriff in a manner rather rude
      D               G                C            G
Using vulgar words of language and his wife she overheard
G
And Pretty Boy grabbed a long chain,
        C                G
And the deputy grabbed a gun
    D                  G           C                G
And in the fight that followed, he laid that deputy down

banjo break

G
Then he ran through the trees and bushes
    C               G
And lived a life of shame
      D            G        C            G
Every crime in Oklahoma was added to his name
G                                      C              G
He ran through trees and bushes on the Canadian River shore
    D               G       C            G
And many a starving farmer opened up his door

fiddle break

G                               C              G
It was in Oklahoma City, It was on a Christmas Day
  D                 G              C               G
A whole carload of groceries and a letter that did say
G                                    C              G
Well you say that I'm an outlaw, you say that I'm a thief
      D                  G              C           G
Well, here's a Christmas dinner for the families on relief

mandolin break

G                                    C               G
As through this life you travel, you meet some funny men
     D              G             C               G
Some rob you with a six-gun, some with a fountain pen
G                                   C                     G
As through this life you ramble, as through this life you roam
       D            G             C                 G
You'll never see an outlaw take a family from their home

  From The Byrds "Sweetheart Of The Rodeo"
  Columbia Records 1968
