D/F# A/E G/D A/E G/D Dsus2 D - D G/D D G/D D Dsus2 D Dsus4/E 

D                                 A
Living on the road, my friend, is gonna keep you free & clean,
G                     G6                      D                   A
But now you wear your skin like iron and your breath's as hard as kerosene,
G                                         D        A       G
You weren't your mama's only boy, but her favorite one, it seems,
    Bm                    G    F#m* A Asus4   G              Bm    C#m 
She began to cry when you said goodbye... and sank into your dreams,

D                              A                
Pancho was a bandit, boys, his horse was fast as polished steel,
G                                  D                  A
He wore his gun outside his pants, for all the honest world to feel,
G                               D                      A  G
Pancho met his match, you know, on the deserts down in Mexico,
    Bm               G F#m* A  Asus4    G                     Bm   A
And nobody heard his dying words....Ah, but that's the way it goes,

Chorus
G                      D                       A   G 
All the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm                G   F#m* A         G           Bm
They only let him slip away...out of kindness, I suppose,

D                               A
Lefty, he can't sing the blues, all night long like he used to,
G                                    D           A
The dust that Pancho bit down south, ended up in Lefty's mouth,
G                                  D               A G    
The day they laid poor Pancho low, lefty split for Ohio,
Bm               G F#m*   A Asus4 G            Bm   A
Where he got the bread to go......ain't nobody knows,

Chorus
G                      D                       A   G 
All the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm              G   F#m* A Asus4/E        G           Bm
We only let him slip away..........out of kindness, I suppose,

Solo: G D G D G Bm A G Bm G Bm C#m 

D                                        A
Well the poets tell how Pancho fell, and Lefty's living in a cheap hotel,
G                                           D            A
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold and so the story ends we're told,
G                                    D                  A     G        
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but save a few for Lefty too,
Bm                  G  F#m* A Asus4    G                Bm  A 
He only did what he had to  do.....and now he's growing old,

G                           D                  A   G 
All the Federales say, they could have had him any day,
Bm                G  F#m* A           G           Bm      A
They only let him go so long...out of kindness, I suppose,
G                         D                       A   G 
A few grey Federales say, they could have had him any day,
     Bm           G F#m* A            G              Bm   G6 D
They only let him go so long...out of kindness, I suppose.
