EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
Well this is how it starts two lovers in the dark
BB chord
On the run from the one that they call Sheriff Sparks
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
Six guns by the side and bullets ‘round their waist
BB chord
Two shots to the sky signal sound for the chase
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
The safe was nearly empty and they were nearly free
BB chord
But was seen by the wood eye of the mean Billy Greene
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
And he screamed at the top of his lungs “they’re on the run!
BB chord
It’s the two outsiders grab yer holsters and yer guns!”

GG chord                           AmAm chord
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        GG chord
But I fear our time has come
			   AmAm chord
Oh we can ride out in the darkness
		    GG chord
Chasing the rising sun
                            AmAm chord
We gotta pack our bags this instant
				      GG chord
We’re heading southbound to the next town
			   AmAm chord
And if we arrive there so safely
	     BB chord      GG chord GG chord GG chord	AmAm chord
Baby you can lay me down
       GG chord GG chord GG chord	AmAm chord
Lay me down
       GG chord GG chord GG chord	AmAm chord
Lay me down
       GG chord GG chord GG chord	AmAm chord
Lay me down

EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
Well it’s the story of the two always on the move
BB chord
They got nothing left to lose ‘cept their guns and they wounds
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
Now they’re crossing borders sheriff’s posse on their tail
BB chord
They rather die together than be stuck up in a cell
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
They drank up all the whiskey and they partied every night
BB chord
Like it could be the last the bounty said to shoot on sight
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
So they chased the endless summer though it came with a price
BB chord
They wouldn’t stop running ‘til they found a paradise
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
But the Sheriff finally found ‘em with his eyes seeing red
BB chord
So the lovers had to shoot him down and fill him full of lead
EmEm chord			        AmAm chord
They were finally free to find a place to lay their head
BB chord
And when they finally did he looked at her and then he said:

GG chord                           AmAm chord
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        GG chord
But I fear our time has come
			    AmAm chord
Oh we can walk down to the ocean
		    GG chord
Chasing the rising sun
                            AmAm chord
We gotta pack our bags this instant
			      GG chord
No more running from town to town
			   AmAm chord
And if we arrive there so safely

GG chord GG chord GG chord 						AmAm chord
Well you’re my green eyed girl and I’ve been running round with you

It’s the afternoon and we got nothing left to do
GG chord GG chord GG chord                            AmAm chord
So wipe the dirt off or take yer shirt off 
GG chord GG chord GG chord                                   AmAm chord
And we should go hit the cantina we got work off 
GG chord GG chord GG chord                             AmAm chord

GG chord GG chord GG chord                                    AmAm chord

GG chord
It’s just tequila and the beach that’s why it’s salty when we kiss

GG chord                           AmAm chord
I said I wish that we could stay here
                        GG chord
But I feel our time has come
			    AmAm chord
Oh we can walk down to the ocean
		    GG chord
Chasing the rising sun
