Rhymes of the Renegades  Michael Martin Murphey



[G]If You Listen [C]Close When The [G]Hot Wind [C]Blows
Down The [G]Dust Filled [C]Streets Of [G]Old Tomb[C]stone
You Might [G]Hear An Old Rhyme [D]Ringin'
Of The [G]Legends Who [C]Walked In Their [G]Long Black [C]Coats
And [G]Their High Top [C]Boots And Their .[G]45 [C]Colts
Right In [G]To This Song I'm [D]Singing
That The [G]Ballad [D]Mongers [C]Made
Into The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [D]
Way [G]Up In [C]Dakota By The [G]Deadwood [C]Moon
Wild [G]Bill's Ghost [C]Haunts Number [G]10 Sal[C]oon
Where A [G]Coward Came To [D]Get Him
Bill Held A [G]Dead Man's [C]Hand Of [G]Aces And [C]Eights
With His [G]Back To The [C]Door He [G]Tempted [C]Fate
Old [G]Bill Never Knew What Hit [D]Him
[G]Gamblin' His [D]Life [C]Away
To The [D]Ryhmes Of The [G]Renegades
And [D]In All Of The Towns Too Tough To Die
Their [G]Dancin' Up On Boot Hill Tonight
[D]Laughin' At The Movies Hollywood Made
[C]Dancing To The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
And [D]Billy The Kid Is Laughing Right Out Loud
At [G]How They Turned Him Into A Hero Somehow
Who'll [D]Cast A Third Stone At His Well Known Grave
While [C]Chanting These [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
Way [G]Out In [C]California By A [G]Long Dark [C]Bend
And A [G]Mask And [C]Duster Blowing [G]In The [C]Wind
Black [G]Bart Still Stands There [D]Waitin'
And [G]Out In El [C]Paso The [G]Thunder Cloud [C]Rolls
Like [G]John Wessley [C]Hardin's Guns [G]Long [C]Ago
And The [G]West Still Loves To [D]Hate Him
For His [G]Legend [D]Will Not [C]Fade
From The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
And [G]All Of The [C]Robbers Who [G]Rode Through [C]Hell
And [G]Danced On The [C]Rope When The [G]Gallows [C]Fell
Their [G]Demons Are Still With [D]Us
And The [G]Vigilantes [C]Do More [G]Evil Than [C]Good
When They [G]Masquarade [C]Around Like [G]Robin [C]Hood
And They [G]Ride At Night To [D]Get Us
From The [G]Owl Whoot [D]Trails The [C]Shades
Come The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
And [D]Could It Be True That Some Become Outlaws
Holdin' [G]On To The Last To A Long Lost Cause
[D]Diggin' Their Grave With A Silver Spade
Singing [C]Hymes And R[D]hymes To The R[G]enegades
Some [D]Call It A Mystery When Waco Burns
From [G]History They Refuse To Learn
They [D]Turn Their Backs 'Till The Movie Deal's Made
[C]Deaf To The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
They'll [D]Burn Down Up To Heaven And Stay (not sure of lyrics here)
Cause The [G]Raid Out Laws On the Churches And Banks (not sure of lryics here)
They [D]Enforce The Laws That Where Tailor Made
They Won't [C]Hear The [D]Rhymes Of The [G]Renegades
They [D]Ignore The Dark Side Of Humanity
They're [G]Living The Illusion That Were All Free
They'll [D]Never Know How Many Could Be Saved
C D N.C. G
From The Lessons And The Rhymes Of The Renegades
