Transpose:
[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
Em DLooked like a hundred guns held on me
Am C EmHunkered by the shed of Detroit General & Company
D CCalling, boy come out, we have you jailed
Em DBeside the buck-shot door, I stood still
Am C EmWondering how the hell the bastards found me in those hills
D CAnd clinging to a letter that I wish I'd mailed
[Chorus]
Em DGo rest easy, Madeline
Dm Am C EmI'm bringing down the bank across this flooded county line
D CAnd when I get home, we'll have a grand old time
Em DBut don't you shed no tears or be surprised
Am G C EmIf you get the word that your wild man has up and died
D CJust set me up a stone on that high hillside
[Interlude] [Verse 2]
Em DNow in the pouring snow, sad, but swift
AmI headed down the highway
C EmHoping that the burden of my blues would lift
D CAnd praying that the whiskey would keep me brave
Em DOh, but I got caught in the cold
Am G C EmLooking like a hobo without no mercy from the road
D CAnd feeling like a dead man without a grave
[Chorus]
Em DGo rest easy, Madeline
Dm Am C EmI'm bringing down the bank across this flooded county line
D CAnd when I get home, we'll have a grand old time
Em DBut don't you shed no tears or be surprised
Am G C EmIf you get the word that your wild man has up and died
D CJust set me up a stone on that high hillside
C EmOh my, oh my
[Interlude] Em D Am C Em D C [Verse 3]
Em DBloodied-up and chained, my legs pinned down
Am C EmI woke to find my fate in the hands of four men gathered 'round
D CAnd cursing for the bag they knew I'd hid
Em DAnd the more they stomped and moaned, the more I prayed
Am C EmFeeling every spark flying off of that file and their rusted blade
D CSaid, better think it through, this is your last chance, kid
[Chorus]
Em DGo rest easy, Madeline
Dm Am C EmI'm bringing down the bank across this flooded county line
D CAnd when I get home, we'll have a grand old time
Em DBut don't you shed no tears or be surprised
Am G C EmIf you get the word that your wild man has up and died
D CJust set me up a stone on that high hillside
