Transcribed by Hugo Kleinhans (hugotahell)



Am                                             D
He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Trail
     E                                       Am
At six months old he'd done three months in jail
Am                                                        D
Here at the bank in his diapers and his little bare baby feet
E                                           Am           
All he said was "Folks, my name is Outlaw Pete."

Chorus
      C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
      G
I'm Outjaw Pete!
         Am
Can you hear me?
  D
Doo, doo, doo, doo doo



            Am                         D
At twenty-five a mustang pony he did steal
                E                            Am
And they rode around and 'round on heaven's wheel
          Am                               D
Father Jesus, I'm an outlaw killer and a thief
       E                          Am
And I slowed down only to saw my grief

       C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
       G
I'm Outlaw Pete!
         Am
Can you hear me?
  D
Doo, doo, doo, doo doo


                F                           C
They cut his trail of tears across the countryside
          G                             D          E
And where he went, women wept and men died



         Am                                  D
One night he woke from a vision of his own death
     E                                        Am
Saddled his pony and rode her deep into the West
         Am                                    D
Married a Navajo girl and settled down on the res
                  E                                            Am
And as the smoke fell he held that beautiful daughter to his chest

       C
I'm Outlaw Pete!
      G
I'm Outlaw Pete! 
        Am
Can you hear me?
          D
Can you hear me?
         C   
Can you hear me?

Instrumental Break:  C - F - Am - F x2

             F                                           C
Out of the East on an Irish stallion came Bounty Hunter Dan
              G                                        Am
His heart quickened and burned by the need to get his man
                 F                                                          C
He found Pete peacefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun and got the drop
                G                                       D            F              E
He said, "Pete, you think you've changed, but you have not."

               Am                                                D
He cocked his pistol, pulled the trigger and shot him ?let it start?
            E                                             Am
He drew a knife from his boot and pierced Dan through the heart
        Am                                           D
Dan smiled as he laid in his own blood dying in the sun
                         E                                         Am
And whispered in Pete's ear, "We cannot undue these things we've done."
  
          C
You're Outlaw Pete!
          G
You're Outlaw Pete!
         Am
Can you hear me?
          D
Can you hear me?
         E
Can you hear me?

            Am                                    D
For forty days and nights Pete rode and did not stop
             E                         Am
Till he sat high upon an icy mountain top
                Am                                 D
He watched the hawk on a desert updraft slip and slide
               E                                          Am
Moved to the edge and dug his spurs deep into his pony's side

Instrumental Break: 
C - Am - C - Am 
G - Am - G - F - E - Am

           Am                                  D
Some say Pete and his pony vanished over the edge
                 E                              Am  
Some say they remain frozen high upon that icy ledge
             ]Am                                    Dm  <------ Only Dm in the song. All other
The young Navajo girl washes in the river, skin so fair           D's are major
               E                                       Am
And braids a piece of Pete's buckskin chaps into her hair

    C
Outlaw Pete!
    G
OutJaw Pete!
         Am
Can you hear me?
         D

          F
Can you hear me?
