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

G chordG Am chordAm
I said I wish that we could stay here
G chordG
But I fear our time has come
Am chordAm
Oh we can ride out in the darkness
G chordG
Chasing the rising sun
Am chordAm
We gotta pack our bags this instant
G chordG
We're heading southbound to the next town
Am chordAm
And if we arrive there so safely
B chordB G chordG G chordG G chordGAm chordAm
Baby you can lay me down
G chordG G chordG G chordGAm chordAm
Lay me down
G chordG G chordG G chordGAm chordAm
Lay me down

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

G chordG Am chordAm
I said I wish that we could stay here
G chordG
But I fear our time has come
Am chordAm
Oh we can walk down to the ocean
G chordG
Chasing the rising sun
Am chordAm
We gotta pack our bags this instant
G chordG
No more running from town to town
Am chordAm
And if we arrive there so safely
B chordB G chordG G chordG G chordGAm chordAm
Baby you can lay me down
G chordG G chordG G chordGAm chordAm

G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
Well you're my green eyed girl and I've been running round with you
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
It's the afternoon and we got nothing left to do
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
So wipe the dirt off or take yer shirt off
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
And we should go hit the cantina we got work off
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
I said it's hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
We've been running for a while why'oncha lay down make me smile
G chordG G chordG G chordG Am chordAm
I could never ask for nothing better than this
G chordG
It's just tequila and the beach that's why it's salty when we kiss

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