[Intro]
C  C/G  C  C/G  (2x)

[Verse 1]
C Livin' on the road, my friend
G Was gonna keep us free and clean
F But now you wear your skin like iron
C G And your breath's as hard as kerosene
F You weren't your mama's only boy
C FBut her favorite one, it seems
Am F C GShe began to cry when you said goodbye
F AmAnd sank into your dreams
[Verse 2]
C Pancho was a bandit, boys
G Rode a horse fast as polished steel
F Wore his guns outside his pants
C G For all the honest world to feel
F Pancho met his match, you know
C F On the deserts down in Mexico
Am F C G No one heard his dyin' words
F Am But that's the way it goes
[Chorus]
F All the federales say
C F They could have had him any day
Am F C G They only let him slip a-way
F Am Out of kindness, I suppose
[Verse 3]
C Lefty he can't sing the blues
G All night long like he used to
F The dust that Pancho bit down South
C G It ended up in Lefty's mouth
F The day they laid old Pancho low
C G Lefty split for Ohio
Am F C G Where he got the bread to go
F Am Well there ain't nobody knows
[Chorus]
F All the federales say
C F They could have had him any day
Am F C G They only let him slip a-way
F Am Out of kindness, I suppose
[Verse 4]
C Poets tell how Pancho fell
G Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
F The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold
C G And so the story ends, we're told
F Pancho needs your prayers, it's true
C G But save a few for Lefty, too
Am F C G He only did what he had to do
F Am And now he's growin' old
[Chorus]
F All the federales say
C F They could have had him any day
Am F C G They only let him slip a-way
F Am Out of kindness, I suppose
[Chorus]
F Yes a few old gray federales still say
C F They could have had him any day
Am F C G They only let him go so wrong
F Am Out of kindness, I suppose
