From the Album “Desperado” 1973

(Capo 2)


    | G  | G/F# | Em | Em | 
    | G  | G    | Em | Em |
    | G  | G7   | C  | C  | 
    | Em | Em   | A  | C  |
    | G  | D/F#

[Verse 1]

D/F#      Em             G          
They were Doolin, Doolin-Dalton
        Em              G     
High or low, it was the same
G7   C                    Em 
Easy money, and faithless women
        A      C        G       B7
Red eye whiskey for the pain

[Verse 2]

Em                              G               B7
Go down Bill Dalton, it must be God's will
Em                        G              G7
Two brothers lyin dead in Coffeeville
C                           Em 
Two voices call to you from where they stood,
A                                   C       G
Lay down your lawbooks now, they're no damn good

[Verse 3]

               Em            G 
Better keep on movin, Doolin-Dalton
          Em              G     
Till your shadow sets you free
G7            C                   Em
And if you're fast, and if you're lucky,
         A     C               G  
You will never see that hangin tree


         Bm             G              C      C/B
Well the towns lay out across the dusty plain
     Am                                Em 
Like graveyards filled with tombstones waitin for the names
      G                 G7              C       C/B
And a man could use his back or use his brains
    Am                                   D           B7
But some just went stir-crazy Lord cause nothin ever changed

[Verse 4]

          Em              G 
Till Bill Doolin met Bill Dalton
       Em                       G     
He was workin cheap, just buyin time
G7          C                    Em 
And then he laughed and said I'm goin
          A         C             G 
And so he left that peaceful life behind


    | D/F# | Em | G  | C   | C/B | Am7 | D  | E  |
      hind-i-ind  ooh  ooh         ooh   ooh  ooh
