Intro : G  C  Am  F   
        C  F  Am  G         
     
C                                      Am F            C 
I am far away from home  With neither faaaaaaamily nor friends
C       F                Am             G           C
I never meant to stay so long In the Missouri borderlands

 C                                   Am F                   C
Three years ago I held a job Saw the woooooorld from my pony sway
C      F               Am               G                     C
Riding drag on a dusty mount I knew I'd worked when I drew my pay

 C                                                      Am F                    C
But times got hard, Christ times got mean   And I fell iiiiiiiin with desperate men
C       F                  Am                 G            C
And one night the worst of them Laid out what was an awful plan 

Break : G  C  Am  F   
        C  F  Am  G         
          
C                                        Am F             C
I did not like such wicked talk Of Murder aaaaaaaand bold robbery
C            F           Am                G                  C
I told those men I would walk  And they all aimed their guns at me


C                                          Am F             C
Their prisoner I helped rob a bank And much gooooold we did obtain
C           F                Am                     G                      C
They shot a boy just for the sport      I stood and watched his young life wane

C                                                  Am F                C 
Such dreadful sounds I'd never heard  His mother’s waailing filled the room
C             F                     Am           G                C
She looked at me and screamed these words  Devil take you to your doom

Break : G  C  Am  F   
        C  F  Am  G         
     
C                                            Am F                C
I turned to face that murderous crew Shot ‘em dead.   I killed all four
C        F            Am            G                C
And the only thing I rue    Had not thought of that before

 C                                               Am F              C
The posse  found me outside of town    As I was kneeeling there to pray
C               F             Am             G            C
From my gallows high I to lay down     In a dark Missouri grave

 C                                                     Am F            C
Please hide the rope stains around my neck    When my mooother sees me dead
C            F               Am                   G               C
Please don’t let my brothers take    The faithful path I chose to tread
C                                            Am F          C
Cause im far away from home    With neither faaaaamily nor friends
C       F                Am                 G           C
I never meant to stay so long    In the Missouri borderlands 
C            F          Am              G           C
And now I'll spend eternity   In the Missouri borderlands
