 E                 B        A         G
 Across the plain flew the lone grey rider
 E            B       A       G
 Leather bag pounding on his back
 E                     B         A       G
 Above the clouds the moon was climbing higher
   E               B            A     G
 A pack of wolves wanted their money back

D                                 F#m
 With folded arms the chief stood watching
D                                 F#m
 Painted braves slipped down the hill
A                        G
 In his ears the spirit talking

 As they closed in
 For an easy kill

 At the house the door was wide open
 Wind blew curtains off the rod
 She was waiting and hoping
 She was praying to her god

 He was luckier than most men
 He was barely in his prime
 As she stood their in the doorway
 Her long dress flowing
 Would he make it this time


 Over the hill in the big green country
 That's the place where the cancer cowboy rides
 Pure as the driven snow before it got him
 Sometimes I feel like he's all right

 Sometimes I feel like a piece of paper
 Sometimes I feel like my own name
 Sometimes I feel different later
 Sometimes I feel
 I feel just the same
