Livin' In The West
By The Bellamy Brothers
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Capo 2 (can take off capo and play E, A, Bb)

D                   G  
John Wesley Harding shot a man for snoring
A                                    D
Killed him in the bed right where he lay
D                           G
He took a snort of whisky and went back to his sleepin
    A                                       D
And rode out before they found him the next day 

Now the brothers, Frank and Jesse, No-one could be more fearsome, 
They robbed the trains and rode in the outlaw gangs 
The civil war was over but still they fought for Dixie 
And legend has their last name to be James

G            A    D                  Bm   
Livin in the west must have been the best
G                                    A
Must have been the greatest times of all
G                 A              D        D/C#    Bm     Bm/A 
Me I lived in the east and I was bored to say the least 
      G                                                  A
But I never saw those sons of guns in bar-rooms starting brawls 

Little William Bonney, Billy the Kid they called him
Had to use a six-gun to survive 
He bit the dust at twenty-one but he left a reputation
A notch for every year he was alive 


Now the frontier days are over for William Frank and Jesse
And a thousand other bad guys of their day 
But they still live on in stories and I hope they live forever
And to sum it up here is all that I want to say
