Shades Of Gray

Cry Cry Cry

 C#mE
 We made Oklahoma a little after three
 BC#m
 Randy his brother Bob in my old GMC
We had some moonshine whiskey
 E
Some of Bob's homegrown
 BC#m
We were so messed up we didn't know if we were drunk or stoned
 C#mE
 Randy was a sad sack tall kinda frail
 BC#m
Bob was a ravin' maniac, crazier than hell
 E
They'd been kicked outta high school several years ago
 BC#m
For  kickin' over porta-cans at the 4H rodeo
 C#mE
 Since then they done their little dance right outside the law
 BC#m
Popped  twice in Oklahoma and once in Arkansas
 C#mE
And I don't know what possessed me to want to tag along
 BC#m
Cause  I was raised a Christian and I knew right from wrong
 AE
 Right or wrong black or  white
 BC#m
 Cross the line you're gonna pay
 EBC#m
 In the dawn before the light
 ABC#m
 Live or die by shades of gray
 C#m
 We stole two charolais heifers
 E
From Randy's sweetheart's pa
 BC#m
And sold them at the livestock sales outside of Wichita
 C#mE
 We got nine hundred dollars and never did suspect
 BC#m
The world of hurt we'd be in once we cashed that check
 E
Next day we heard the story on the local radio
 BC#m
And made our plans that very night to go to Mexico
 E
And I swear we would've made it if it wasn't for the shine
 BC#m
I got sick about the time we crossed that Kansas line
 AE
 Right or wrong black or  white
 BC#m
 Cross the line you're gonna pay
 EBC#m
 In the dawn before the light
 ABC#m
 Live or die by shades of gray
SOLO
 C#mE
     I was lying in the bar ditch praying I would die
 B
When a light came on above us
 C#m
And a voice called from the sky
 E
A half dozen unmarked cards came screeching to a halt
 BC#m
They grabbed Bob he started screaming that it was my fault
 E
There were men and dogs and helicopters flying all around
 B
They had the brothers on the pickup hood
 C#m
And me on the ground
 E
Then Bob flew all to pieces but Randy he held tight
 BC#m
When a black man in a suit and tie stepped into the light
He told his men to turn us loose
 E
And they put down their guns
 B
He said these are just some sorry kids
 C#m
They ain't the ones
 AE
 Right or wrong black or  white
 BC#m
 Cross the line you're gonna pay
 EBC#m
 In the dawn before the light
 ABC#m
 Live or die by shades of gray
 C#mE
 They left us by the roadside downhearted and alone
 BC#m
Randy got behind the wheel said boys I'm going home
 E
So we turned round and faced our fate hung over but alive
 BC#m
On that morning Oklahoma late April nintry five
