give up your guns  Buoys

[Bm] [F#m] 
[Bm] [F#m] 
When [Bm]I woke up this [F#m]morning
[Bm]found myself [F#m]alone
[G]turned to touch her [A]hair
but she was [Bm]gone, she was [A]gone

And [F#m]there beside my [Bm]pillow
were her [F#m]tears from the night [Bm]before
she [G]said give up your [A]guns and face the [Bm]law     [Bm]

[Bm]robbed a bank in [F#m]Tampa
and I [Bm]thought I had it [F#m]made 
but the [G]hounds picked up my [A]trail
within the [Bm] Glades
so I [Fm]ran

And I [F#m]stumbled on this [Bm]cabin
and she [F#m]came to me once [Bm]more
she [G]said give up your [A]guns and face the [Bm]law      [Bm]

[Bm]I don't [A] wanna [D]leave her
[C]I don't wanna [F#m]die
[C]deep within a [G]cold cold grave
with [Em]no-one 'round to [Dmai7]cry

[Bm]but I [A] got my [D]pistol
[C]now it's time to [G]choose
[C]shootin' here or [G]hanging there
and [Em]either way I [F#7]loose

And [Bm]now I'm in this [F#m]cabin
where my [Bm]own true love should [F#m]be
Instead [G]there lies a note [A] she wrote to [Bm]me
and it says[A]

no you [F#m]can't live by the [Bm]bullet
and you [F#m]sure as death can [Bm]die
my [G]love, give up your [A]guns or say good[Bm]bye... good[F#]bye

And the [F#m]sheriff now is [Bm]calling
with a [F#m]shotgun at my [Bm]door
s[G]on... give up your [A]guns 'n face the [Bm]law
[Bm] [F#m] [Bm] [F#m]repeat & fade
