Intro [Am]  [G]  [D]


([Em])        ([C])   	        ([G])  ([D])
Tell me a story about outlaws, Grandpa
([Em])        ([C])           ([G])         ([D])             
Tell me a story about those wild, wild days
([Em])        ([C])           ([G])         ([D])     
Tell me a story about cowboys, Grandpa
([Em])        ([C])           ([G])         ([D])
Tell me a story about where you were raised
And he'd say


([Em])   ([C])        ([G])           ([D])
Over yonder's where I was born
([Em])            ([C])           ([G])            ([D])
Down near the meadow In a plank-board shack
([Em])         ([C])             ([G])       ([D])
Times were hard then for honest folks
([Em])     ([C])                   ([G])         ([D])
But we made up for all the things we lacked
([Em])          ([C])             ([G])    ([D]) 
Didn't have lawmen but we had thieves
([Em])           ([C])              ([G])         ([D])          ([Em])  ([C]) 
They used to hang them from that oak tree back then
([G])                 ([D])                    ([Em])     ([C]),([G]),([D]),
  That's just the way things were back then


Tell me a story about outlaws, Grandpa
Trying to find a place that's safe
Tell me a story about young men, Grandpa
The kind that sometimes make mistakes
And he'd say


Over yonder lies an old headstone
Of a man who tried to outrun his past
He settled down here and he made a home
But he was wanted alive or dead
Saw my first lawman when I was thirteen
He shot my daddy down in front of me back then
That's just the way things were back then


SOLO

Then,  [Am] [G] [D] again before going back into the verse.

Tell me a story about poor men, Grandpa
Trying to feed their body and souls
Tell me a story about farmers, Grandpa
Who cleared the land where the dogwoods grow
And he'd say

Over yonder's where I would plow
We scratched a living among these hills
We raised peanuts and we raised cows
But I made my living from a whiskey stillThey sent a lawman when I was eighteen
I tried to run but they arrested meI spent a year and a day in the county jail
That's where I was
When the market fell

SOLO

Tell me a story about outlaws, Grandpa.
