After refrain, play first section of verse chords through once before singing next verses.

Jam section is F C and G chords hit very quickly repeatedly.  I find itís easier if 
barring the C and G chords at the 3rd fret.  Listen to the song to get it close.  Solo over 
with F major scale?

LYRICS:
I am my mother's only son
And you might think that I'd regret the things I've done
But I can only think of one right now
You and I both know the reason why you've turned your gun on me

I'm rarely held in high regard
And most folks don't seem to trust me very far
But I can promise you one thing
I would've turned my back and walked away if she had worn a ring

Chorus:
Please don't put your bullets in me
Please don't bury me Ďneath the cold, cold ground
You and I alone will know the truth of what went on
And you will never see my face again in town

Most nights I go to bed alone
And there's no place on this earth that I'd call home
And Iíll admit I have a roving eye
But I'm not the only man who turned to look when she walked by

I don't expect to buy much time
But I need to find a way to change your mind
And to convince you that I couldn't know
She wore no ring upon her hand to mark the vows that she had spoken

Chorus - "So I'm beggin' you..."

I swear the whole world must be blind
If I'm the first man to see murder in your eyes
How fitting now the wind is turning cold
And with my dying breath I curse your life, I curse your very soul

Chorus

I am my motherís only son
And you might think that Iíd regret the things Iíve done
But thereís just one thing I wish I could change
And thatís the day I met the sheriffís wife
The day that robbed me of my life
And left me in this shallow mountain grave
