Poncho & Lefty  Willie Nelson

[D]Living on the road my friend, [A]who's gonna keep you free and clean
[G]Now you wear your skin like iron, [D]Your breath as hard as [A]kerosene.
[G]You weren't your mama's only boy, but her [D]favorite one it [G]seems
[Bm]She began to cry when you [G]said good[A]bye,
And [G]sank into your [Bm]dreams.[Bm] [A] [D]

[D]Poncho was a bandit boy, [A]his horse was fast as polished steel
[G]He wore his gun outside his pants [D]for all the honest [A]world to feel.
[G]Poncho met his match you know on the [D]deserts down in [G]Mexico
[Bm]Nobody heard his [G]dying [A]words, ah but [G]that's the way it [Bm]goes.[Bm] [A] [G]

[G]All the Federals they say [D]they could have had him [G]any day
[Bm]They only let him [G]slip awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.[Bm] [A] [D]
[D]Lefty, he can't sing the blues [A]all night long like he used to.
[G]The dust that Poncho bit down south [D]ended up in [A]Lefty's mouth
[G]The day they laid poor Poncho low, [D]Lefty split for [G]Ohio
[Bm]Where he got the [G]bread to [A]go, there [G]ain't nobody [Bm]knows [Bm] [A] [G]
[G]All the Federals they say [D]they could have had him [G]any day
[Bm]They only let him [G]slip awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.[Bm] [A] [D]

[D]The boys tell how Poncho fell, and [A]Lefty's living in cheap hotels
[G]The desert's quiet, Cleveland's cold,[D]so the story [A]ends we're told
[G]Poncho needs your prayers it's true, but [D]save a few for [G]Lefty too
[Bm]He only did what he [G]had to [A]do, and [G]now he's growing [Bm]old[Bm] [A] [G]  

[G]All the Federals they say [D]they could have had him [G]any day
[Bm]They only let him [G]slip awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.[Bm] [A] [D]
