Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Pancho & Lefty  Willie Nelson

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

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

[G]All the Federales say[D] they could have had him [G]any day
[D]They only let him [G]slip [D]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 Pancho bit down south [D]ended up in [A]Lefty's mouth
[G]The day they laid poor Pancho low, [D]Lefty split for [G]Ohio
[D]Where he got the [G]bread [D]to g[A]o, there [G]ain't nobody [Bm]knows [Bm]   [A]  [G]
[G]All the Federales say[D] they could have had him [G]any day
[D]They only let him [G]slip [D]awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.[Bm] [A] [D]
[D]The boys tell how Pancho fell, and [A]Lefty's living in cheap hotels
[G]The desert's quiet, Cleveland's cold,
[D]And so the story [A]ends we're told
[G]Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but [D]save a few for [G]Lefty too
[D]He only did what he [G]had [D]to [A]do, and [G]now he's growing [Bm]old[Bm]   [A]  [G]  [G]All the Federales say [D]they could have had him [G]any day
[D]They only let him [G]slip [D]awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.[Bm]   [A]  [G]  [G]A few gray Federales say [D]they could have had him [G]any day
[D]They only let him [G]slip [D]awa[A]y out of [G]kindness, I sup[D]pose.[G] [A] [D]
