The Bolton Stretch

Verse 1
D                             C                     G
He cracks a wicked smile, had his foot pressed to the floor
D                     C                           G
   Flyin' down country roads that he's been down before
D             C            G      A
One of just three men that the sheriff cannot catch
Bm          A              G            D  C  G (2x)
And he's travelin' 90 miles an hour, down the Bolton Stretch     

Verse 2
D                             C                     G
The first time we had seen his face was back in '84
D                             C                     G
He walked right into old O'Hares, he robbed that liquor store
D             C            G      A
The sheriff tried to catch him but the man he got away
Bm          A              G                       D  C  G (2x)
And he didn't show his face in town again until today


Chorus:
      Em                                          D
He Didn't come for justice, didn't come to make amends
Em                                                D
Doesn't ask forgiveness, he's not looking to make friends
Em                              D         A          G
Just that he was passing through with money wearin' thin
                A                                    D      C  G
Now he's travelin' down the Bolton Stretch again

Verse 3
D                             C                     G
He watches all the trees fly by, but doesn't seem to care
D                             C                     G
Knows it's time to leave again, but doesn't know to where
D             C            G      A
And though he stole a lot of money, it's not enough for bail
Bm          A              G                       D  C  G (2x)
And there are two blue lights behind him now, the sheriff's on his trail


Chorus:
      Em                                          D
He Didn't come for justice, didn't come to make amends
Em                                                D
Doesn't ask forgiveness, he's not looking to make friends
Em                                  D         A          G
Just that he was passing through with money wearin' thin
                A                                 D      C  G
Now he's travelin' down the Bolton Stretch again

Verse 4
D                             C                     G
Since the day that he was born he spent his whole live livin' free
D                             C                     G
With nothing but the loosest ties to friends and family
D             C            G      A
No punishment will make him care about the things he's done
Bm          A              G                       D  C  G (2x)
And if he lives another 20 years he'll live 'em on the run


Chorus:
      Em                                          D
He Didn't come for justice, didn't come to make amends
Em                                                D
Doesn't ask forgiveness, he's not looking to make friends
Em                                    D         A          G
Just that he was passing through with money wearin' thin
                A                               D      C  G
Now he's travelin' down the Bolton Stretch again
