Intro: G G/F# Em 

       G      Em 

       G   G7 C 

       Em     A C G D/F#

          Em             G          
They were Doolin, Doolin-Dalton
        Em              G       G7
High or low, it was the same
     C                    Em 
Easy money, and faithless women
        A      C        G       B7
Red eye whiskey for the pain.

Em                             G               B7
Go down little Dalton, it must be God's will
Em                        G              G7
Two brothers lyin dead in Coffeeville.
C                           Em 
Two voices call to you from where they stood,
A                                    C       G
"Lay down your lawbooks now, they're no damn good."

Better keep on movin, Doolin-Dalton

Till your shadow sets you free.

And if you're fast, and if you're lucky,

You will never see that hangin tree.

         Bm             G              C      C/B
Well the towns lay out across the dusty plain
     Am                                Em 
Like graveyards filled with tombstones waitin for the names
      G                 G7              C       C/B
And a man could use his back or use his brains
    Am                                   D           B7
But some just went stir-crazy Lord cause nothin ever changed

Till Bill Doolin met Bill Dalton

Be was workin cheap, just buyin time

And then he laughed and said I'm goin

And so he left that peaceful life behind.
