G                            
Ho-woah-oo-oh-ho-ho-oo-woah- no
Am
Hoo-oo-woo-oo-oo
G
Ho-oh-oo-woah-oh-oh-oo-woah-no- oo
Am		B
Hoo-woo-

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Th lyrics on this are all messed up. The last two choruses should be:

    I said I think that we can stay here
    ‘Cause I feel our time has come
    And we can walk down to the ocean
    And sit with the rising sun
    So unpack your bags this instant
    No more running from town to town
    Now that we’ve arrived so safely
    Baby you can

    Lay me down…

  2. I would really like to learn the picking part on this song, where would I find it?
