Dm-C-Dm-C-Dm

Dm CMy name is William Bonny and I have some things to tell
Dm CAll about my life 'n death and the way things are in Hell
Bb Dm Bb FAnd lies they told about me after Garrett shot me down
C In Mexico, in 1881
Dm CTwenty one were the lives that Garrett said I took
Dm CThat was just another lie he wrote down in his book
Bb Dm Bb FFor he had to make it seem as though I were the Devils seed
Cbut the lives I took, they were three
Bb FAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as blue as blue could be
Bb F C And the sun that shines on you, well it used to shine on me
Bb F And I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I liked the taste of beer
CThe only difference now, is I'm not here
Bb DmI'm in New Mexico and it's 1881
Dm CA man who'd lie to save his skin won't look you in the eye
Dm CGarrett never saw my face when he let those bullets fly
Bb Dm Bb FAnd I died there in Pete Maxwell's room, no boots upon my feet
CIn the dark, and all alone
Dm CThey had themselves an inquest, and then they buried me
Dm CThey made me into something that I never meant to be
Bb Dm Bb FAnd the vultures came and chipped away the headstone on my grave
CAnd then took it home, for souvenirs
Bb FAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as blue as blue could be
Bb F C And the sun that shines on you, well it used to shine on me
Bb F And I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I liked the taste of beer
CThe only difference now, is I'm not here
Bb DmI'm in New Mexico and it's 1881
Bb FHistory books are written by the ones who survive
Bb FGarrett was the one who came out of that room alive
Bb Dm Bb FAnd he harnessed up my ghost, made it sing and dance
CAnd I am dancing still, I'm dancing still
Dm CThe corridors of my Hell, they never ever change
Dm CI am doomed forever to this little piece of range
Bb Dm Bb FTrapped here by a legend that's no making of my own
CI look around, and I see.
Bb DmIt's still New Mexico and it's 1881
Bb FAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as blue as blue could be
Bb F C And the sun that shines on you, well it used to shine on me
Bb F And I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I liked the taste of beer
CThe only difference now, is I'm not here
Bb DmI'm in New Mexico and it's 1881
Bb DmIt's still New Mexico and it's 1881
