Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent.

The first person to tab this got it almost completely correct but they left out a 
few chords (said they were new to guitar but they did a great job). Hope this sounds right.

Standard tuning, no capo. Harp in C.


 C                 G                F          C
Aint it just like you and me to go down like that?
 C               G        F           C
Bleeding out in a boxcar shot in the back.
 C                              G
We were all that luck(?) all that time
F                             C
Lord was waiting for us at the end of the line.                     
C                   G                    F        C
Any minute now we knew we were going to have to decide.

F                              
Take a fat chance come out gunning.
C                Em                  F         
Get out now and try to keep running down south.
 
               C              G
Til she said hey hey cut the rope
  F                           C
No  way weíre gonna let them get us both
  C                                    G
Donít stop running til we reach that coast
  F                              C
Let your pretty momma go up in smoke

  C                G              F         C
Coming out of the harbor it was simple and new
  C         G                  F               C
Clean as clear water we could see straight through.
  C                                   G
But in that old dust bowl when the money got low
         F                         C
it was all we could do to keep a nail in the floor
   C                  G
Showed on her face, tell by the lines
               F        C
These were desperate times

    F           
Pistol strapped and her hair was dyed
    C                     Em
Gonna make her money like Bonnie and Clyde
  F
Well be alright

               C              G
And she said hey hey cut the rope
  F                          C
No  way were gonna let them get us both
  C                                   G
Dont stop running til we reach that coast
  F                              C
Let your pretty momma go up in smoke

   F
Dont let the sorry weather get you down
   C                              Em
Change your last name, try your luck around
  F
And if they ever come to ask about me
  C                               Em
Tell them that you knew me and you kind of liked me
 F
I ainít afraid to go it on my own
 C                              Em
You can make a run and make it all alone
  F
Youll be all right

  F
End of the line the engines still burning
  C                   Em                       F
Just like the wheels, the hands keep turning round and round
 F
Til time ran out

              C               G
And she said hey hey cut the rope
  F                          C
No  way were gonna let them get us both
  C                                   G
Dont stop running til we reach that coast
  F                              C
Let your pretty momma go up in smoke (X2)
