Willie Nelson - Pancho And Lefty guitar chord

D

Livin' on the road, my friend

A

Was gonna keep us free and clean

G

But now you wear your skin like iron

D A

And your breath's as hard as kerosene

G

You weren't your mama's only boy

D G

But her favorite one, it seems

Bm

She began to cry

G A

When you said good bye

G Bm

And sank into your dreams

Pancho was a bandit, boys

Rode a horse fast as polished steel

Wore his guns outside his pants

For all the honest world to feel

Pancho met his match, you know

On the deserts down in Mexico

No one heard his dyin' words

But that's the way it goes

G

And all the federales say

D G

They could have had him any day

Bm G A

They only let him slip away

G Bm

Out of kindness, I suppose

Now Lefty he can't sing the blues

All night long like he used to

The dust that Pancho bit down South

It ended up in Lefty's mouth

The day they laid old Pancho low

Lefty split for Ohio

Where he got the bread to go

Well there ain't nobody 'knows

But all the federales say

They could have had him any day

They only let him slip away

Out of kindness, I suppose

Now poets sing how Pancho fell

Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel

The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold

And so the story ends, we're told

Pancho needs your prayers, it's true

But save a few for Lefty, too

He only did what he had to do

And now he's growin' old

And all the federales say

They could have had him any day

They only let him go so long

Out of kindness, I suppose

Yes a few old gray federales still say

They could have had him any day

They only let him go so wrong

Out of kindness, I suppose
