Outlaw Pete  Bruce Springsteen

Song: Outlaw Pete
Album: Working on a Dream
Transcribed by Hugo Kleinhans (hugotahell)
[Am]He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Tr[D]ail
At si[E]x months old he'd done three months in j[Am]ail
[Am]Here at the bank in his diapers and his little bare baby f[D]eet
[E]All he said was "Folks, my name is Outlaw Pe[Am]te."
I'm Ou[C]tlaw Pete!
I'm Ou[G]tjaw Pete!
Can you h[Am]ear me?
Do[D]o, doo, doo, doo doo
At twenty-fi[Am]ve a mustang pony he did st[D]eal
And they rode ar[E]ound and 'round on heaven's w[Am]heel
Father Jes[Am]us, I'm an outlaw killer and a th[D]ief
And I s[E]lowed down only to saw my g[Am]rief
I'm Out[C]law Pete!
I'm Out[G]law Pete!
Can you h[Am]ear me?
Do[D]o, doo, doo, doo doo
They cut his tra[F]il of tears across the count[C]ryside
And where [G]he went, women wept and men di[D]ed[E]
One night[Am] he woke from a vision of his own de[D]ath
Saddl[E]ed his pony and rode her deep into the We[Am]st
Married a[Am] Navajo girl and settled down on the r[D]es
And as the smoke f[E]ell he held that beautiful daughter to his ch[Am]est
I'm Out[C]law Pete!
I'm Ou[G]tlaw Pete!
Can you [Am]hear me?
Can you he[D]ar me?
Can you h[C]ear me?
Instrumental Break: C - F - Am - F x2
Out of the Ea[F]st on an Irish stallion came Bounty Hunter D[C]an
His heart quic[G]kened and burned by the need to get his m[Am]an
He found Pete pea[F]cefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun and got the dr[C]op
He said, "Pete, [G]you think you've changed, but you have n[D]ot."[F] [E]
He cocked his p[Am]istol, pulled the trigger and shot him ?let it sta[D]rt?
He drew a kn[E]ife from his boot and pierced Dan through the [Am]heart
Dan smil[Am]ed as he laid in his own blood dying in the s[D]un
And whispered in Pete's e[E]ar, "We cannot undue these things we've do[Am]ne."
You're Out[C]law Pete!
You're Out[G]law Pete!
Can you h[Am]ear me?
Can you he[D]ar me?
Can you h[E]ear me?
For forty da[Am]ys and nights Pete rode and did not st[D]op
Till he sat h[E]igh upon an icy mountain t[Am]op
He watched the h[Am]awk on a desert updraft slip and sl[D]ide
Moved to the ed[E]ge and dug his spurs deep into his pony's s[Am]ide
Instrumental Break:
[C] [-] [Am] [-] [C] [-] [Am]  
[G] [-] [Am] [-] [G] [-] [F] [-] [E] [-] [Am]  
Some say Pe[Am]te and his pony vanished over the ed[D]ge
Some say they rem[E]ain frozen high upon that icy l[Am]edge
[)Am] [Dm]
