Chords:
Transpose:
[Chorus]
E F#m G#mBoots and Stetson and six guns
F#m E F#m G#m F#mAnd the lilies grow high
E F#m G#m F#mThey grow for a man with a gunslingin' hand
E F#m G#m F#m EWho before his time must die.
[1/2 verse]
C Am EThey grow in the trail he has traveled
C Am EA trail well spattered with lead
C Am EThey weep for the graves of the many
C Am EMen they weep for the men now dead.
[Verse]
E F#m G#mHe rides along lonely, no friends
F#m E F#m G#m F#mBut only the lilies growin' high
E F#m G#m F#mAll men seem to fear him, not one will go near him
E F#m G#m F#m EAnd he knows the reason why.
C Am EHis name and fame spread before him
C Am ELike a carpet of death and he knows
C Am EOne day he'll be slow on the draw
C Am EAnd then for him a lily will grow.
[Verse]
E F#m G#mA woman may love him though she knows
F#m E F#m G#m F#mSoon above him the lilies growin' high
E F#m G#m F#mThen like the lily she'll bow down her head
E F#m G#m F#m EBow down her poor head and cry.
C Am EOn some boothill they will lay him
C Am EAnd a headboard will sway in the wind
C Am EThe lily will nod and gently weep
C Am EFor another gunman's end.
[Chorus]
E F#m G#mBoots and Stetson and six guns
F#m E F#m G#m F#mAnd the lilies grow high
E F#m G#m F#mBoots and Stetson and six guns
E F#m G#m F#m EAnd the lilies grow high...
