The Rope and the Colt  Scott Walker

Capo on the 3rd fret
Intro: Am D F G Am
[Am] I seek the man who [G]killed my [Am]friend
and when we meet my l[G]ife may end
my life dep[F]ends [G]upon my [C]gun
and my [D]gun spells [F]hope
in the [G]land where the [F]rope and the [Em]colt are [Am]king
[Am] [D] [F] [G] [Am]  
I swore a vow on my dyin' breath
to ride a trail that ends in death
and death could strike with a frightening jolt of a lightning bolt in
the land where the rope and the colt are king
( Tab from: )
[Am] But oh my [F]darlin' if [G]I should [C]die[G]
[Am] there's not a [F]soul who will [G]ever [F]know that I [Em]loved you [F]so
was the [Em]reason [Am]why
The days are dust and the nights are black
but oh my darlin' if I get back
I'll trade my gun for a weddin' ring and I'll turn my hand
to the land where the rope and the colt are king
