[part 1]
C         Em               Am                F 
All these pills and powder could not make me stay 
       C           G          F             G  
Oh I'm on my merry way in the morning light now.

C        Em              Am          F
Cold New England winters have got me coughing

       C                 G           F
as the Lincoln turns the corner down Memory St.


[part 2]
Am                              Dm
Tell me Judge what's the bounty on that boy from Lawrence County

F      G         C
He's a friend of mine.

Am                         Dm
If I had a way to trap him would you swear to pay up captain?

F      G         C
He's a friend of mine. (add a G when "part 1" follows!)

[...and so on...]

[part 1]
The door swang slowly open The committee room was dark.
The bailiff marked the charts in red.
Recall a boy in orange as he slowly passed
Awkward as a calf with its legs wobbling.

[part 2]
Be so kind, tell me warden Who's in line to die this morning?
Could I see the show?
If he bore his teeth to scare us would we see our likeness sheriff
In the pearly glow?

[part 1]
Roll on old silver river through the Iron Range.
Past the sleeping trains that wait.
Gold and amber petals in your water waves;
Like the band of Jesse James in wait.

[part 1]
Rain it beats their window, makes it hard to see
Who's on a drunken spree in the city lights.
Silent are the dying, silent are the young,
And it's silent where I'm from.

[part 2]
Tell me love of your husband will we see his headlights coming?
Will he know it's us?
When his tired eyes have lifted will he see your bed has shifted?
Is he bad at love?

[part 2]
I got the money that I owe you something else to show you.
Could you meet me there?
Take the road out past the station to the river basin.
I'll be waiting there ... for you.

[part 1]
All these pills and powder could not make me stay.
I'm on my merry way in the morning light.
All these dying matadors in dusty rings
have killed my will to sing and I'm gone.

[part 2]
Tell me Judge, what's the bounty on that boy from Lawrence County?
He's a friend of mine.
If I had a way to trap him would you swear to pay up Captain?
He's a friend of mine.
