Intro:

Am  G, Dm7 (x4)

Verse 1:

Am  G      Dm7
     James,
        Am    G  Dm7
Come on home.
Am      G         Dm7 
 You've been gone too long, baby.
Am  G             Dm7  Am    G    Dm7
 We can't let our hero die a-lone.

            Am      G     Dm7
We miss you day and night,
Am   G            Dm7
 You left town to live by the rifle.
Am   G          Dm7
 You left us to fight,
       E7
But it just ain't right,
To take away the light.

Bridge 1:

F         C
 Remember Genie,
G            Dm
 From the ca-sino?
F              C
 She's still a-waiting,
        G
In that big brass bed.

F              C
 The boys from your gang,
G             Dm
 Are knocking whisky back,
F              C
 'Til they get out of hand,
    G
And wish they were dead.

F             Dm
 They're only lonely for,
    C              G
The life that they led,
           F
With their old friends.

Chorus 1:

Am    G  F
 Ooh...
     Em7     Am   G  F
Wooh-hoo-ooh-hoo,
         Em7
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo,
    Am   G  F
Hoo hoo,
         Em7     (C)
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo.

C      Dm
 James,
        F
Are you selling,
     E7       (Am)
Your soul to a cold gun?
Selling your soul to a...
Ooh, James,
Are you selling your soul to a cold gun?

Interlude:

Am  G, Dm7 (x2)

Verse 2:

Am     G  Dm7
 Where,
          Am     G  Dm7
Lies your heart?
Am        G            Dm7
 It's not there in the buckskin baby.
Am        G            Dm7
 It's not there in the gin,
               Am    G        Dm7
That makes you laugh long and loud.

         Am      G      Dm7
You're a coward, James;
Am      G         Dm7
 You're running a-way from humanity.
Am      G       Dm7
 You're running out on reality.
E7
 It won't be funny,
When they rat-a-tat-tat you down.

Bridge 2:

 Remember Genie,
G            Dm
 From the ca-sino?
F              C

F              C

    C              G
The life that they led,
           F
With their old friends.

Chorus 2:

Am    G  F
 Ooh...
     Em7     Am   G  F
Wooh-hoo-ooh-hoo,
         Em7
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo,
    Am   G  F
Hoo hoo,
         Em7     (C)
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo.

C      Dm
 James,
        F            E7
Are you selling your soul...

 To...

A cold gun?
