Livin' in the West  The Bellamy Brothers

By The Bellamy Brothers
Capo 2 (can take off capo and play E, A, Bb)
[D]John Wesley Harding [G]shot a man for snoring
[A]Killed him in the bed right where he [D]lay
[D]He took a snort of whisky an[G]d went back to his sleepin
And [A]rode out before they found him the next [D]day
Now the brothers, Frank and Jesse, No-one could be more fearsome,
They robbed the trains and rode in the outlaw gangs
The civil war was over but still they fought for Dixie
And legend has their last name to be James
[G]Livin in the [A]west [D]must have been the [Bm]best
[G]Must have been the greatest times of [A]all
[G]Me I lived in the [A]east and I was [D]bored to [D/C#]say the [Bm]least [Bm/A]
But I [G]never saw those sons of guns in bar-rooms starting [A]brawls
Little William Bonney, Billy the Kid they called him
Had to use a six-gun to survive
He bit the dust at twenty-one but he left a reputation
A notch for every year he was alive
Now the frontier days are over for William Frank and Jesse
And a thousand other bad guys of their day
But they still live on in stories and I hope they live forever
And to sum it up here is all that I want to say
