Into –  C C         B7 B7        C C     B7……..

Em                            G

With a saddle bag of money

        C

We left that western town

Em                        G

A steep Mountain pass 

                  C

We had to climb

 

Em                        G

That scorching dessert 

                C

Almost made us loose our mind

Em                      G

But we hung on strong 

           C

Until sundown

 

F

Our picture posted 

C                           G

In every town we’d go

              F       C                     

We could only hide for just so long 

 

F

Two ragged drifters

             C                G

On their way to Mexico

Am                                     

Hungry for a life that’s better

     C                      B7

A life we’ll never know

 

 

Riding through the night

We spent 6 months on the run

Our coats were worn 

to tattered threads 

The tumble weed 

and the bright red cactus flowers

Black hungry Buzzards overhead

 Chorus

  • Bridge -

G              C

400 miles of dry riverbeds

G                B7            C

Our horse’s barely survived

      C                                           G

And those bounty hunters seeking silver for our head 

                    Am               C         

We were wanted dead or alive

 

               Am       B7         Em

We were wanted dead or alive

INSTRUNMENTAL-     Like into

I heard a shot

The sun blazing in our eyes

And her body 

Fell onto the ground 

I held her head up

While she whispered in my ear 

Just take the saddlebags and ride

We saw our picture posted 

In every town we’d go

But we could only hide for just so long 

Two ragged drifters

On their way to Mexico                           

Hungry for a life that’s better

a life we’ll never know

Two ragged drifters

their way to Mexico                           

Longing for a life together 

  B7

A life we’ll never know
