 Intro: Am D F G Am

Am                  G         Am
 I seek the man who killed my friend
                      G
 and when we meet my life may end
            F    G       C
 my life depends upon my gun
        D          F
 and my gun spells hope
        G              F            Em       Am
 in the land where the rope and the colt are king

 Am D F G Am

 I swore a vow on my dyin' breath
 to ride a trail that ends in death
 and death could strike with a frightening jolt of a lightning bolt in
 the land where the rope and the colt are king

Am         F          G        C   G
 But oh my darlin' if I should die
Am             F             G    F           Em        F
 there's not a soul who will ever know that I loved you so
         Em     Am
 was the reason why

 The days are dust and the nights are black
 but oh my darlin' if I get back
 I'll trade my gun for a weddin' ring and I'll turn my hand
 to the land where the rope and the colt are king
