Pancho And Lefty

Song Author Willie Nelson Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Living on the road my friend
[G]Is gonna keep you free and clean
[F]Now you wear your skin like iron
[C]Your breath as hard as ker[G]osene
[F]Weren't your mama's only boy
But her [C]favorite one it [F]seems
She [Am]began to cry when you [F]said [C]goodb[G]ye  
And [F]sank into your [Am]dreams

[C]Pancho was a bandit boys
[G]his horse fast as polished steel
[F]He wore his gun outside his pants
For [C]all the honest world to [G]feel
[F]But Pancho met his match you know
[C]on the deserts down in M[F]exico
[Am]Nobody heard his [F]dyi  [C]ng   [G]words
[F]ah but that's the way it [Am]goes   

[F]All the Federales say
[C]they could have had him any [F]day  
[Am]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa  [G]y  
[F]out of kindness I supp[Am]ose   

[C]Lefty he can't sing the blues

[G]all night long like he used to
[F]The dust that Pancho bit down south
[C]ended up in Lefty's m[G]outh
[F]When they laid poor Pancho low
[C]Lefty split for O[F]hio  
[Am]Where he got the [F]bread [C]to   [G]go  
[F]there ain't nobody k[Am]nows   

[F]All the Federales say
[C]they could have had him any [F]day  
[Am]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa  [G]y  
[F]out of kindness I supp[Am]ose   

[C]Poets tell how Pancho fell
[G]and Lefty's living in a cheap hotel
[F]The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold,
[C]And so the story [G]ends we're told
[F]Pancho needs your prayers it's true
[C]but save a few for Lefty [F]too  
[Am]He only did what he [F]had [C]to   [G]do  
[F]and now he's growing [Am]old   

[F]All the Federales say
[C]they could have had him any [F]day  
[Am]They only let him [F]slip [C]awa  [G]y  
[F]out of kindness I supp[Am]ose   

Living on the road my friend
Is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath as hard as kerosene
Weren't your mama's only boy
But her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams

Pancho was a bandit boys
his horse fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
But Pancho met his match you know
on the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dying words
ah but that's the way it goes

All the Federales say
they could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose

Lefty he can't sing the blues

all night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south
ended up in Lefty's mouth
When they laid poor Pancho low
Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go
there ain't nobody knows

All the Federales say
they could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose

Poets tell how Pancho fell
and Lefty's living in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold,
And so the story ends we're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true
but save a few for Lefty too
He only did what he had to do
and now he's growing old

All the Federales say
they could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
out of kindness I suppose
