RUNNING GUN by Marty Robins

D G7

I rode out of Kansas City,going/ south to Mexico

A G7 D

I was/ running dodging danger,left the/ girl that I loved so

G7

Far behind lay Kansas City and the/ past that I had earned

A G7 D

Twenty/ notches on my six gun marked the/ lessons I had learned

G7 D

Many times I sold my fast gun for a/ place to lay my head

G7 D A

Till the/ nights began to haunt me by the/ men that I lay dead

D G7

Couldn't/ stand it any longer with the/ life that I'd begun

A G7 D

So I/ said good-bye to Jeannie and/ became a running gun

G7

I rode into Amarillo as the sun sank in the west

A G7 D

My thoughts in Kansas City and the girl that I love best

G7

As I smiled and kissed her gently and then turned around to go

A G7 D

Said I'd send for her to meet me when I reached old Mexico

G7 D

I had barely left the saddle and my foot just touched the ground

G7 D A

When a cold voice from the shadows told me not to turn around

D G7

Said he new about my fast gun,new the price paid by the law

A G7 D

Challenged by a bounty hunter,so I turned around to draw

D G7

I knew someday I'd meet him for his hand like lightning flashed

A G7 D

My own gun stayed in leather as his bullet tore it's path

G7

As my strength was slowly fading,I could see him walk away

A G7 D

And I knew that where I lie today,he to must lie some day

G7 D

Now my strength is slowly fading and my eyes are growing dim

G7

And my thoughts return to Jeannie

D A

and the home that we had planned

D

Oh please tell her won't you mister

G7

that she's still the only one

A G7 D

But a woman's love is waisted when she loves a running gun

Cheers!!!
