D                                 
Living on the road, my friend, 
   A
Is gonna keep you free & clean,
G                     G6                      
But now you wear your skin like iron, 
         D                   A
And your breathís as hard as kerosene,
G                                         
You weren't your mama's only boy, 
        D        A       G
But her favorite one, it seems,
    Bm                    G    F#m* A Asus4   
She began to cry when you said goodbye... 
    G              Bm    C#m 
And sank into your dreams,

D                                              
Pancho was a bandit, boys, 
    A
His horse was fast as polished steel,
G                                  
He wore his gun outside his pants, 
D                  A
For all the honest world to feel,
G                               
Pancho met his match, you know, 
D                      A  G
on the deserts down in Mexico,
    Bm               G F#m* A  Asus4    
And nobody heard his dying words....
    G                     Bm   A  
Ah, but that's the way it goes,

Chorus:
G                          D                       A   G 
And all the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm                G   F#m* A         
They only let him slip away...
       G           Bm
out of kindness, I suppose,

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           A
Ended up in Lefty's mouth,
G                                  D               A G    
The day they laid poor Pancho low, lefty split for Ohio,
Bm               G F#m*   A Asus4 
Where he got the bread to go......
G            Bm   A
Ainít nobody knows,

Chorus
G                          D                       A   G 
And all the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm              G   F#m* A Asus4/E        
We only let him slip away..........
       G           Bm
Out of kindness, I suppose,

Solo: G D G D G Bm A G Bm G Bm C#m 

D                                        
Well the poets tell how Pancho fell, 
    A
And Lefty's living in a cheap hotel,
G                                           
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold 
    D            A
And so the story ends we're told,
G                                            
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, 
D                  A     G
But save a few for Lefty too,
Bm                  G  F#m* A Asus4     
He only did what he had to  do.....
    G                Bm  A
And now he's growing old,

G                           D                  A   G 
And the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm                G  F#m* A           
They only let him go so long...
       G           Bm      A
Out of kindness, I suppose,
G                         D                       A   G 
A few grey Federales say, they could have had him any day,
     Bm           G F#m* A            
They only let him go so long...
       G              Bm   G6 D
Out of kindness, I suppose.
