Intro: Em C D (2X)
 E--0----0------------- (Feel your way through this part)

[Em]The cold wind blew the preacher grieved
He [C]said they're comin' after me
I [D]ain't exactly what I seem to be[Em]
[Em]He pulled his pistol from his side
[C]Pointed it at me and cried
And [D]then he laid a bullet deep in my [Em]chest
[Em]He stood still revealin' the story
[C]That I knew was true before
And [D]now because of it I lay [Em]dying
[Em]He claimed to run with Jesse James,
[C]William Bonnie, and they all the same
I[D] ain't no preacher man I was born of [Em]fire
Pre Chorus: A G* Em F#*
Hey can't you hear that train coming now
A G* Em
Rollin' fast down the tracks to hell their bound
Chorus: C D G F#* Em
Well I'm in over my head again
[C]I hear those [D]pistols layin' [Em]down
C D G F#* Em
And I have takin' the lives of many men
[C]Now the [D]angel's comin' [Em]down
I said the [C]Angel of De[D]ath is coming [Em]down
[Em]Well up in the horizon
[C]Laid the red sun beatin' cold and dying
And [D]taking with it all the lives the preacher [Em]stole
[Em]Well you see the preacher is not real
He[C] clench his fists of rage and steal
And [D]spit the fires of Satan at your [Em]soul
[Em]He beat the path to Heaven's door
The[C] angels said they'd take no more
[D]Now he walks the Earth forever lo[Em]ne
[Em]And on the stone that marked his death
When[C] he did finally lay to rest
[D]Were the lonely words "I'm going[Em] home"
