Dm C Dm C Dm

DmMy name is William Bonny and I Chave some things to tell DmAll about my life 'n death and the Cway things are in Hell And Blies they told Dmabout me after BGarrett shot me Fdown In CMexico, in 1881 DmTwenty one were the lives that CGarrett said I took DmThat was just another lie he Cwrote down in his book For he Bhad to make it Dmseem as though I Bwere the Devils Fseed but the Clives I took, they were three BAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as Fblue as blue could be BAnd the sun that shines on you, well it Fused to shine on Cme BAnd I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I Fliked the taste of beer The only Cdifference now, is I'm not here I'm in New BMexico and it's 1881Dm DmA man who'd lie to save his skin won't Clook you in the eye DmGarrett never saw my face when he Clet those bullets fly And I died Bthere in Pete DmMaxwell's room, no Bboots upon my Ffeet In the Cdark, and all alone DmThey had themselves an inquest, and Cthen they buried me DmThey made me into something that I Cnever meant to be And the Bvultures came and Dmchipped away the Bheadstone on my Fgrave And then Ctook it home, for souvenirs BAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as Fblue as blue could be BAnd the sun that shines on you, well it Fused to shine on Cme BAnd I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I Fliked the taste of beer The only Cdifference now, is I'm not here I'm in New BMexico and it's 1881Dm BHistory books are written by the ones who Fsurvive BGarrett was the one who came out of that room Falive And he Bharnessed up my ghost, Dmmade it Bsing and Fdance And I am Cdancing still, I'm dancing still DmThe corridors of my Hell, they Cnever ever change DmI am doomed forever to this Clittle piece of range BTrapped here by a Dmlegend that's no Bmaking of my Fown I look Caround, and I see. It's still New BMexico and it's 1881Dm BAnd the skies of Lincoln County were as Fblue as blue could be BAnd the sun that shines on you, well it Fused to shine on Cme BAnd I knew the smell of woodsmoke and I Fliked the taste of beer The only Cdifference now, is I'm not here I'm in New BMexico and it's 1881Dm It's still BNew Mexico and it's 1881Dm
