Five Brothers  Marty Robbins

Music/Lyrics by Tompall Glaser, and popularized by Marty Robbins.
Capos are for the lazy.
[Em]Five brothers who [B7]left Arkansas
[Em]Set out to find the gambler who [B7]murdered their pa
[C]Five brothers, and [G]three in their teens
[Em]Gotta find the [Am]man who killed their [Em]pa in [B7]New Or[Em]leans
They [Em]heard of him in Houston, and his[B7] trail was leadin' west
He'd [Em]left there many months ago, and [B7]so they couldn't rest
[C]Five brothers, and [G]three in their teens
[Em]Gotta find the [Am]man who killed their [Em]pa in [B7]New Or[Em]leans
[Fm]New Orleans
The [Fm]sun was hot as fire, and the [C7]nights were cold as steel
[Fm]Hate was strong, and youth was wild, and [C7]so they couldn't feel
[C#]Five brothers, and [G#]three in their teens
[Fm]Gotta find the [A#m]man who killed their [Fm]pa in [C7]New Or[Fm]leans
His [Fm]trail led to the Badlands, and the [C7]desert promised death
The [Fm]gambler's odds were different now, he [C7]treasured every breath
[C#]Five brothers, and [G#]three in their teens
[Fm]Close behind the [A#m]man who killed their [Fm]pa in [C7]New Or[Fm]leans
[F#m]New Orleans
When [F#m]first they saw the killer, he was [C#7]by the waterhole
Five [F#m]rifles rang out through the night, they [C#7]killed the gambler cold
[D]Five brothers, and [A]three in their teens
[F#m]Finally got the [Bm]man who killed their [F#m]pa in [C#7]New Or[F#m]leans
The [F#m]desert is their keeper now, for [C#7]this a traveler said
That [F#m]poison lived within the hole, now [C#7]six of them are dead
[D]Five brothers, and [A]three in their teens
[F#m]Lay beside the [Bm]man who killed their [F#m]pa in [C#7]New Or[F#m]leans
[F#m]Lay beside the [Bm]man who killed their [F#m]pa in [C#7]New Or[F#m]leans
