Verse 1:
[Am] [G] James,[Dm7]
Come on [Am]home.[G] [Dm7]
[Am] You've [G]been gone [Dm7]too long, baby.
[Am] We [G]can't let our [Dm7]hero [Am]die a-[G]lone.[Dm7]
We miss you [Am]day and [G]night,[Dm7]
[Am] You [G]left town to [Dm7]live by the rifle.
[Am] You [G]left us to [Dm7]fight,
But it [E7]just ain't right,
To take away the light.
Bridge 1:
[F] Remember [C]Genie,
[G] From the ca-[Dm]sino?
[F] She's still a-[C]waiting,
In that [G]big brass bed.
[F] The boys from [C]your gang,
[G] Are knocking [Dm]whisky back,
[F] 'Til they get [C]out of hand,
And [G]wish they were dead.
[F] They're only [Dm]lonely for,
The [C]life that they [G]led,
With their [F]old friends.

[Am] Ooh..[G].[F]
Wooh-[Em7]hoo-ooh-[Am]hoo,[G] [F]

Verse 2:
[Am] Where,[G] [Dm7]
Lies your [Am]heart?[G] [Dm7]
[Am] It's not [G]there in the [Dm7]buckskin baby.
[Am] It's not [G]there in the [Dm7]gin,
That makes you [Am]laugh [G]long and [Dm7]loud.
You're a [Am]coward, [G]James;[Dm7]
[Am] You're [G]running a-[Dm7]way from humanity.
[Am] You're [G]running [Dm7]out on reality.
[E7] It won't be funny,
When they rat-a-tat-tat you down.

The [C]life that they [G]led,
With their [F]old friends.
