Db                            
Ho-woah-oo-oh-ho-ho-oo-woah- no
Ebm
Hoo-oo-woo-oo-oo
Db
Ho-oh-oo-woah-oh-oh-oo-woah-no- oo
Ebm		F
Hoo-woo-

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

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

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

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

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

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

It sounds a little better if you put a capo on the first fret and do the strumming pattern DDD-DDUDDU
