F#m   A   F#m   A   A7   D   F#m   B   D   A   E

[Verse 1]

          F#m              A
They were duelin', Doolin' Dalton,
        F#m             A      A7
High or low, it was the same
     D                    F#m
Easy money, and faithless women
        B      D        A     C#m
Red eye whiskey for the pain

[Verse 2]

F#m                           A              C#m
Go down, Bill Dalton, it must be God's will
F#m                        A          A7
Two brothers lyin' dead in Coffeyville
D                           F#m
Two voices call to you from where they stood
B                                    D       A
Lay down your law books now, they're no damn good

[Verse 3]

       C#m     F#m             A
Better keep on movin', Doolin' Dalton
C#m         F#m             A     A7
 'Till your shadow sets you free
          D                  F#m
If you're fast and if you're lucky
         B     D                A
You will never see that hangin' tree.

[Verse 4]

         C#m           A                D      Dsus2
Well the towns lay out across the dusty plains
     Bm                                F#m
Like graveyards filled with tombstones waitin' for the names
      A                 Em7     A7      D      Dsus2
And a man could use his back or use his brains
    Bm                                     E            C#m
But some just went stir crazy, Lord 'cause nothin' ever changed

[Verse 5]

           F#m             A
'Till Bill Doolin met Bill Dalton
       C#m     F#m                A    A7
He was workin' cheap, just bidin' time
        D                      F#m
Then he laughed and said, "I'm goin',"
          B         E             A     E   F#m
And so he left that peaceful life behi--ii--nd

the A chord sounds better if you play the barred version on the 5th fret I THINK
