[Intro] (x2)
A D 

[Verse 1]
                 A                               F#m
Break it to them gently when you tell my Mom and Dad
                     Bm                       E7sus4 E7
When you see my baby sister be as kind as you can
                   A                           Dmaj7
And break it to my grandma who said that boy's wild and bad
                 Bm                               E7sus4          E7     A
Break it to them gently when you tell them that I won't be comin' home again

[Chorus]
          D                                            A
Cause I'm runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
D                                                       A
Fightin' for my life and I don't know if I'll make it alone
D                                            A
Runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
               F#m
God I wanna go home
                  A   D A D
Lord I wish I was home

[Verse 2]
                A                            F#m
When you see my lady with the twinkle in her eyes
               Bm                         E7sus4 E7
Tell it to her softly and hold her if she cries
                A                            Dmaj7
Tell her that I love her and I will 'til the day I die
                Bm                              E7sus4          E7    A
Break it to her gently when you tell her that I won't be comin' home again

[Bridge]
E                      A
I got in too deep with strangers
E                                   A
Thinkin' they could help me find my way
D                           A
But nobody warned me of the dangers
         F#m                                       B7 E7
And it's always the young and foolish that have to pay

[Verse 3]
                    A                               F#m
So break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad
                   Bm                                   E7sus4 E7
Thank them for the good years and all the lovin' that I had
                   A                             Dmaj7
And break it to my grandma, who said the boy is wild and bad
                 Bm                              E7sus4          E7     A
Break it to them gently when you tell 'em that I won't be comin' home again

[Chorus]
D                                            A
Runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
D                                                       A
Fightin' for my life and I don't know if I'll make it alone
D                                            A
Runnin' with a gun and it isn't any fun as a fugitive
               F#m
Lord I wanna go home
                A
Lord I wanna go home

[Outro]
                           D
You gotta break it to them gently
                 A
Break it to them gently
                       D
Gotta break it to them gently
                    A
Gotta really try to roll 'em
                       D
Gotta break it to them gently
                    A
Gotta really try to soothe 'em
                    D
Gotta really try to soothe 'em
                    A
Gotta really try to roll 'em
                        D
You gotta roll it to my mother
                    A
Gotta roll it to my grandma
              D
Roll it to my mother
A
Roll it to my mother and roll the old lady
D                            A
Roll it to my grandma, she's damn near eighty (roll the old lady)
