G             C             G
Born under a south Kentucky sky
G                 C          G
He'd come west to Mexico to fight 
C
1842 at Mier
     G                  E 
The gutters filled with blood and fear
G               D             G
Barely made it back to Texas alive

     G             C                     G
With Missouri Volunteers when the war began
     G       C               G 
In '46 they crossed the Rio Grande
C                 
There he met his dark-eyed love
     G                     E                           
But said good bye when the war was done
   G                    D             G
He swore that he'd come back for her again

C  E      G
Oh oh novia
C   E       D       C
Oh oh your man is gone
C
Maybe he's in Texas
           G                E
But we'll take what God has left us
           G             D               G
And we'll leave for California with the dawn

G                   C          G
Worked his way back to Old Mexico
      G                  C               G
To reclaim the love he'd left two years ago
C        
Back to those same city walls
      G                   E
Where he'd watched copper cannonballs
      G                 D              G
Like wayward suns roll down the cobblestones

     G              C           G
They put him in a prison left alone
     G            C                  G
With other yankee fools so far from home
   C
Parade them through the square in chains
  G                    E
'Till in rode Captain Glanton's gang
 G                 D               G
Apache scalps for bounties paid in gold


C  E      G
Oh oh novia
C   E       D       C
Oh oh your man is gone
C
Maybe he's in Texas
           G                 E
But we'll take what God has left us
           G             D               G
And we'll leave for California with the dawn


 G                 C              G
Glanton's men were killers all by trade
     G                 C                G
And through the prison bars a deal was made
 C         
Glanton needed three new men
    G                 E
He hired the lovelorn veteran
     G                D                      G
The killers rode out through the governor's gates


     G            C                    G
The Veteran left camp 'fore the rising sun
    G                         C       G
No killer he'd left all their work undone
 C
He was not yet two days out
      G              E
When Glanton's naked native scouts
        G              D                       G
Brought back his empty horse and his brand new gun


C  E      G
Oh oh novia
C   E       D       C
Oh oh your man is gone
C
Maybe he's in Texas
           G                E
But we'll take what God has left us
           G             D               G
And we'll leave for California with the dawn

C  E      G
Oh oh novia
C   E       D       C
Oh oh your man is gone
C
Maybe he's in Texas
           G                E
But we'll take what God has left us
           G             D               G
And we'll leave for California with the dawn
