[Verse 1]
            Am    Am/E           Am    Am/E
From the badlands   ...came the killer,
    Am          Am/E           C  C/G  C  C/G
He lived by the knife and the gun,
 Dm      Dm/A       G/B     G
Shoot ya just for standing,
    Am            Am/E     Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E
And cut ya if you tried to run!


[Verse 2]
Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E   Am       Am/E
              He was big as a tree,
       Am         Am/E
And he did as he pleased,
      Am          Am/E     C  C/G  C  C/G
And everything he did was bad,
 Dm              Dm/A   G/B       G
They said if you was to kill him,
      Am   Am/E    Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E
It'd only make him mad!


[Verse 3]
Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E       Am     Am/E          Am   Am/E
             From the goodlands ...came the cowgirl,
 Am  Am/E      C  C/G  C  C/G
Patti was her name,
Dm         Dm/A           G/B    G
Hot on the trail of that killer,
      Am   Am/E         Am   Am/E  Am  Am/E
On a Moped she called 'Flame!'


[Verse 4]
Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E       Am         Am/E       Am   Am/E
             'Cause the killer had killed her Daddy,
           Am    Am/E     C  C/G  C  C/G
Just for spittin' in the road,
        Dm         Dm/A          G/B   G
And ya only had to kill Patti's Daddy once...
       Am      Am/E   Am    Am/E  Am
... To git that gal P.O.ed! 


[Chorus]
C              G         C  C/G  C  C/G
    Yippe -i- ay, Cow Patti!
C              G         C  C/G  C  C/G
    Yippe -i- ay, Cow Patti!
G7       G7/D  G7     G7/D
    Rode into town to find...
       E7        E7/B       Am   Am/E  Am   G
...The man that killed her Daddy,          YAH!
C             G         
   Yippe -i- ay------! 
     Am   Am/E  Am   Am/E
Cow Patti!

[Verse 5]
     Am        Am/E       Am     Am/E
The killer hit town at daybreak,
         Am          Am/E        C   C/G  C  C/G
Ate the door off the local sa - loon,
     Dm       Dm/A             G/B            G
He started to drink, you could tell he was thinking,
         Am     Am/E    Am  Am/E  Am  Am/E
There'll be a showdown soon------!


[Verse 6]
Am Am/E  Am Am/E   Am      Am/E        Am     Am/E
                 Patti hit town in a cloud of dust,
      Am         Am/E           C  C/G  C  C/G
Old 'Flame' was buzzin' like a saw,
         Dm        Dm/A    G/B
And the whole town got as quiet as a church...

...When the killer stepped out for the draw!


[Bridge]
Am
   Forty shots rang out,(It's too many, I know that!)
C
   Forty people fell,
 Dm                    G
Patti and the killer missed each other,
          Am                       G
But they shot that town to Hell!  YAH!


[Chorus]
C              G         C  C/G  C  C/G
    Yippe -i- ay, Cow Patti!
C              G         C  C/G  C  C/G
    Yippe -i- ay, Cow Patti!
G7       G7/D  G7     G7/D
    Rode into town to find...
       E7        E7/B       Am   Am/E  Am   G
...The man that killed her Daddy,          HAH!
C             G       G
   Yippe -i- ay------!
     Am      Am/E Am          Am/E
Cow--------   ...Patti------------!

      Am                              Am/E Am 
The killer took a step towards Patti,
       Am/G  C                        C/G  C
Said, "It's time I gunned ya down!"
         Dm                           G
But he slipped in somethin' that was lyin' in the street,
         Am
And was shot before he hit the ground!

(Killed him ...the dummy!
We had a pretty good song going here!)


[Coda]
                    Am
The killer slipped,     and it cost him his life,
                         G
And Patti said, as she roared out of town,
             F
"Ya, gotta watch yer step,
          E                        G
When you know the chips are down!"
C            G     G/B  G/D  G7          C
   Yippe -i- ay-----ay----------!  COW PATTI!
