[Intro]
D  A  G  D

[Verse 1]
D                               A
  Livin' on the road my friend,  was gonna keep us free and clean
G                                      D                            A
  But now you wear you skin like iron, and your breath's as hard as kerosene
G                                    D                        G
  You weren't your momma's only boy, but her favorite one, it seems
Bm                          G         A   Asus4 A Asus2 A
  She began to cry when you said good-bye
G                    Bm      A (quick change to D in the next verse)
  And sank into your dreams

[Verse 2]
D                            A
  Pancho was a bandit, boys.  His horse was fast, as polished steel
G                                    D                  A
  He wore his gun outside his pants, for all the honest world to feel
G                                D                      G
  Pancho met his match you know, on the deserts down in Mexico
Bm                 G     A  Asus4 A Asus2 A G                         Bm   A
  Nobody heard his dying words               Aw but that's the way it goes

[Chorus]
G                        D                       G
  All the federales say, they could have had him any day
Bm                  G     A Asus4 A Asus2 A        G              Bm    A
  They only let him slip away               Out of kindness, I suppose

[Verse 3]
D                                    A
  Now Lefty he can't sing the blues, all night long, like he used to
G                                      D           A
  The dust that Pancho bit down south, ended up in Lefty's mouth
G                                  D               G
The day they laid poor Pancho low, Lefty split for Ohio
Bm               G        A Asus4 A Asus2 A G                    Bm    A
Where he got the bread to go                  There ain't nobody knows

[Chorus]
G                        D                       G
  All the federales say, they could have had him any day
Bm                  G     A Asus4 A Asus2 A        G              Bm    A
  They only let him slip away               Out of kindness, I suppose

[Break]
       Same chords and timing as a verse...
D  A  G  D  A  G  D  G  Bm  G  A  Asus4  A  Asus2  A  G  Bm  A

[Verse 4]
D                                    A
  Now poets sing how Pancho fell, and Lefty's living in cheap hotels
G                                              D            A
  The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold, and so the story ends we're told
G                                         D               G
Pancho needs your prayers, it's true.  But save a few for Lefty too
Bm                    G      A Asus4 A Asus2 A  G                      Bm  A
  He only did what he had to do.                 And now, he's growing old

[Chorus]
G                        D                       G
  All the federales say, they could have had him any day
Bm                  G     A Asus4 A Asus2 A        G              Bm    A
  They only let him slip away               Out of kindness, I suppose

[Outro]
G                           D                       G
  A few gray federales say, they could have had him any day
Bm                  G     A Asus4 A Asus2 A         G              Bm   A G D
  They only let him go so long               Out of kindness, I suppose

I like it! I hang on the A though. Have to play with the embellishment a little more.

For what it's worth.... the Hoyt Axton version is the same as this, just down 2 half step = C, G, F ... (Am)
