Ballad of a Well-Known Gun  Elton John

Intro: | D * G/D * | D |
[D]I pulled out my Stage Coach Times and I read the latest [G]news.
I [A]tapped my feet in d[D]umb surprise and of c[G]ourse I [A7]saw they k[D]new.[G] [G/A]
The [D]Pinkertons pulled [G]out my bags and [D]asked me for my n[G]ame.
A D A * D D7 * G/A D D7 *
I stuttered out my answer and hung my head in shame.
[G/A]Now they've [D]found me. At last they've [A7]found me.
It's hard to [G]run from a starving [D]family.
G/A D * G D G * G/D
Now they've found me. Well I won't run.
* D Bm A/C# G D
I'm tired of hearing "There goes a well-known gun".
[D]Now I've seen this chain gang - [Em7/A]Lord, I say l[D]et me see my p[G]riest.
I [A]couldn't have faced your d[D]esert sand-old b[G]urning b[A7]rown-backed b[D]east[G].[G/A]
The p[D]oor house they hit me [G]for my kin and c[D]laimed my crumbling [G]walls.
A D A * D D7 * G/A D D7 *
Now I know how Reno felt when he ran from the law.
[D]Oh, the well-known gun
[D](Now they've found me) There goes the well-known gun
[D](I said found me) There goes the well-known gun
