This is one of the best written songs I've ever heard.  It's on
Springsteen's album Nebraska where he does it in a different key, but
slap a capo on and that's easily changable.  He also throws a few gut
wrenching harmonica solos in.  Happy pickin'!

Nebraska-Bruce Springsteen

A	      E		          A
I saw her standin¹ on her front lawn
        E	 	         A
Just twirlin¹ her baton
	   D		     A
Me and her went for a ride sir
         E			          A
And ten innocent people died

From the town of Lincoln Nebraska
With a sawed of .410 on my lap
Through to the badlands of Wyoming 
I killed everything in my path

I can¹t say that I¹m sorry
For the things that we done
At least for a little while sir
Me and her we
Had us some fun

The jury brought in
A guilty verdict and the
Judge he sentenced me to death
Midnight in a prison storeroom with
Leather straps across my chest

Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir
And snaps my poor head back
You make sure my pretty baby Is sittin¹ right there
On my lap

They declared me unfit to live
Said into that great void my soul¹d be hurled
They wanted to know why I did what I did
Well sir I guess there¹s just a meanness in this world
