pancho and lefty2  Willie Nelson



INTRO     [D] [G] [D] [G] [D]
[D]Living on the road my friend, [A]was gonna keep us free and clean
[G]Now you wear your skin like iron,
[D]Your breath as hard as [A]kerosene.
[G]You weren't your mama's only boy, [D]but her favorite one it[G] seems
[Bm]She began to cry when you [G]said good-[A]bye,
A[G]nd sank into your [Bm]dreams.
[D]Pancho was a bandit boy, [A]rode a horse fast as polished steel
[G]He wore his gun outside his pants
[D]For all the honest [A]world to feel.
[G]Pancho met his match you know [D]on the deserts down in [G]Mexico
[Bm]Nobody heard his [G]dying [A]words, ah b[G]ut that's the way it [Bm]goes.
[G]All the Federales say [D]they could have had him an[G]y day
[Bm]They only let him [G]slip [A]away out of [G]kindness, I supp[Bm]ose.
[D]Lefty, he can't sing the blues [A]all night long like he used to.
[G]The dust that Pancho bit down south [D]ended up in [A]Lefty's mouth
[G]The day they laid poor Pancho low, [D]Lefty split for [G]Ohio
[Bm]Where he got the [G]bread to [A]go, there ain't [G]nobody [Bm]knows
[G]All the Federales say [D]they could have had him a[G]ny day
[Bm]They only let him [G]slip [A]away out of [G]kindness, I supp[Bm]ose.
SOLO
[D]Now the poets tell how Pancho fell, [A]and Lefty's living in cheap hotels
[G]The desert's quiet, Cleveland's cold,And[D] so the story [A]ends we're told
[G]Now Pancho needs your prayers it's true,[D] but save a few for [G]Lefty too
[Bm]He only did what he [G]had to [A]do, and[G] now he's growing [Bm]old
[G]All the Federales say [D]they could have had him a[G]ny day
[Bm]They only let him[G]go so [A]long out of [G]kindness, I supp[Bm]ose.
[G]A few gray Federales say [D]they could have had him a[G]ny day
[Bm]They only let him [G]go so [A]long out of [G]kindness, I sup[Bm]pose.
