Well a man come on the 6 o'clock news 
       A                         E            A   
Said somebody's been shot, somebody's been abused. 
           A                            D      A 
Somebody blew up a building, somebody stole a car. 
       A                     E              A        
Somebody got away, somebody didn't get too far. 
    F#m            E       A   
Yeah, they didn't get too far.

Grandpappy told my pappy, "Back in my day, son,

A man had to answer for the wicked that he done.

Take all the rope in Texas find a tall oak tree, 
          A                           E            A 
Round up all them bad boys, hang 'em high in the street 
F#m                E       A  
For all the people to see that 

CHORUS -----------------------------------------
  E                                    D     A

You gotta saddle up your boys, you gotta draw a hard line. 
            E                           D       A 
When the gunsmoke settles we'll sing a victory tune 
       D        A            E      A    
We'll all meet back at the local saloon. 
        A                     D           A   
We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singin, 
    G            D                 A 
Whiskey for my men, Beer for my horses.
        A                     D        A 
We got too many gangsters doin dirty deeds. 
           A                             E             A 
We've got too much corruption too much crime in the streets 
                A                        D                                       A 
It's time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground 
          A                              E        A      
Send 'em all to their maker and he'll settle 'em down 
F#m                      E         A   
You can bet he'll settle 'em down cause 
   G             D                 A     
Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses.

This is perfect if you add a capo to the first fret.

Sometimes it seems like the A goes on too long, and you definitely need a capo on the first fret, but other than that it's pretty good.

Great tab. @mflatt Try an switching to an Asus4 halfway through the A chord in during the A E A in the verse, and on the last A in the chorus.

A Asus4 E A
Said somebody's been shot, somebody's been abused.

G D A Asus4
Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses.
