Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

dalton  Eagles

They were du[F#m]elin', Doolin' Dalt[A]on,
High or l[F#m]ow, it was the s[A]ame    [A7]
Easy m[D]oney, and faithless wo[F#m]men
Red eye w[B]hiskey for the pai[A]n     [C#]

[F#m]Go down, Bill Dalton, it must [A]be God's will  [C#]
[F#m]Two brothers lyin' dead in C[A]offeyville     [A7]
[D]Two voices call to you from wh[F#m]ere they stood
[B]Lay down your law books now, they're no d[D]amn good  [A]

Better k[C#m]eep on [F#m]movin', Doolin' Da[A]lton
'Till[C#m] you[F#m]r shadow sets yo[A]u free  [A7]
If you're f[D]ast and if you're lu[F#m]cky
You will [B]never [D]see that hangin' t[A]ree.
Well the t[C#m]owns lay out ac[A]ross the dusty p[D]lains
Like gr[B]aveyards filled with tombstones wai[F#m]tin' for the names
And a m[A]an could use his bac[Em7]k or us[A7]e his b[D]rains
But s[Bm]ome just went stir crazy, Lord 'cause not[E]hin' ever changed       [C#m]
'Till Bill[F#m] Doolin met Bill [A]Dalton
He was workin' ch[F#m]eap, just bidin' t[A]ime     [A7]
Then he la[D]ughed and said, "I'm goin[F#m]',"
And so he le[B]ft that pe[E]aceful life behind

The verse chords are only listed once, which makes it hard to follow if you're just learning.
