All around in my home town

They're trying to track me down

Sheriff John Brown always hated me

For what I don't know

Every time that I plant a seed

And I started out of town,.. yeah

Aiming to shoot me down

Reflexes got the better of me

D#    Dm         Gm
And what is to be must be

D#    Dm             Gm
Every day the bucket falls to the well

D#             Dm          Gm
But one day the bottom will drop out

Yes,.. one day the bottom will drop out But I say! (RIFF 1)
