Intro: A chordA A chordA

A chordA E chordE A chordA
A chordA young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm
E chordE A chordA
a boy filled with wanderlust who really meant no harm
D chordD
He changed his clothes and shined his boots and combed his dark hair down
A chordA
And his mother cried as he walked out
D chordD A chordA
don't take your guns to town son
D chordD A chordA
Leave your guns at home Bill
D chordD A chordA
Don't take your guns to town
A chordA E chordE A chordA
He laughed and kissed his mom and said your Billy Joe's a man
E chordE A chordA
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
D chordD
But I wouldn't shoot without a cause I'd gun nobody down
A chordA
But she cried again as he rode away
D chordD A chordA
don't take your guns to town son
D chordD A chordA
Leave your guns at home Bill
D chordD A chordA
Don't take your guns to town
A chordA E chordE A chordA
He sang as on he rode his guns hung at his hips
E chordE A chordA
He rode into a cattle town a smile upon his lips
D chordD
He stopped and walked into a bar and laid his money down
A chordA
But his mother's words echoed again
D chordD A chordA
don't take your guns to town son
D chordD A chordA
Leave your guns at home Bill
D chordD A chordA
Don't take your guns to town
A chordA E chordE A chordA
He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
E chordE A chordA
and tried to tell himself at last he had become a man
D chordD
A chordA dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
A chordA
And he heard again his mother's words
D chordD A chordA
don't take your guns to town son
D chordD A chordA
Leave your guns at home Bill
D chordD A chordA
Don't take your guns to town
A chordA E chordE A chordA
Filled with rage the Billy Joe reached for his gun to Draw
E chordE A chordA
but the stranger drew his gun and fired before he even saw
D chordD
As Billy Joe fell to the floor the crowd all gathered 'round
A chordA
and wondered at his final words
D chordD A chordA
don't take your guns to town son
D chordD A chordA
Leave your guns at home Bill
D chordD A chordA
Don't take your guns to town
