Poncho And Lefty  Emmylou Harris














[C]Living on the road my friend,[G] is gonna keep you free and clean
[F]Now you wear your skin like iron,
Your [C]breath as hard as [G]kerosene.
[F]You weren't your mama's only boy, but her [C]favorite one it [F]seems
[C]She began to cry when you [F]said [C]goodb[G]ye,
And [F]sank into your [Am]dreams.[Am]   [G]  [C]
[C]Pancho was a bandit boys[G], his horse was fast as polished steel
[F]He wore his gun outside his pants
For [C]all the honest world to [G]feel.
[F]Pancho met his match you know on the [C]deserts down in [F]Mexico
[C]Nobody heard his [F]dyi[C]ng [G]words, ah but [F]that's the way it [Am]goes.[Am]   [G]  [F]

[F]All the Federales say[C] they could have had him [F]any day
[C]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa[G]y out of [F]kindness, I sup[Am]pose.

[C]Lefty, he can't sing the blues [G]all night long like he used to.
[F]The dust that Pancho bit down south [C]ended up in [G]Lefty's mouth
[F]The day they laid poor Pancho low, [C]Lefty split for [F]Ohio
[C]Where he got the [F]bread [C]to g[G]o, there [F]ain't nobody [Am]knows

[F]All the Federales say[C] they could have had him [F]any day
[C]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa[G]y out of [F]kindness, I sup[Am]pose.[Am]   [G]  [C]

[C]Poets tell how Pancho fell, and Lef[G]ty's living in a cheap hotel
[F]The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold,
[C]And so the story [G]ends we're told
[F]Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but [C]save a few for [F]Lefty too
[C]He only did what he [F]had [C]to [G]do, and [F]now he's growing [Am]old

[F]All the Federales say [C]they could have had him [F]any day
[C]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa[G]y out of [F]kindness, I sup[Am]pose.

[F]A few gray Federales say [C]they could have had him [F]any day
[C]They only let him g[F]o s[C]o l[G]ong, out of of [F]kindness, I s[Am]uppose.
