Words at Twenty Paces  Alabama

Words at Twenty Paces Alabama
Just [Bm] like a western movie a [A] challenge has been made
a [G] shot was fired in anger as [F#m] pride stepped off the train
[Bm] won't we ever stop this [A] killin' me and you
til our [G] hearts are up on boot hill
and [F#m] there's nothin' we can do
[Bm] Words at 20 paces [A] anger at high noon
this [G] house ain't big enough for both of [F#m] us it's comin' soon
we'll [Bm] finish up our happiness and [A] run hope out of town
with [G] words at twenty paces lord it's [F#m] love we're gunnin' [Bm] down
How did we ever lose the [A] dreams we used to share
the [G] gentle touch, the words of love, the [F#m] way we used to care
[Bm] sometimes your words cut like a [A] bullet in my side
oh, [G] which is more important, [F#m] wounded hearts or wounded pride
I've [Bm] got my ammunition, I [A] know you've got yours too
we [G] know each other's weakness, lord the [F#m] damage we can do
[Bm] why can't we just step aside and [A] put our guns away
Let [G] love come like the cavalry, [F#m] ride in and save the day
