Dead or alive    (intro)

 

          D                  C                               G

1. It's all the same, only the names will change.

     C             - G                          F         C  D

    every day      it seems we're wasting away.

                                            C                  G

    Another place, where the faces are so cold.

            C         G                  F    C      D

    I'd drive all night, just to get back home.

 

  C          - G             F               D   

I'm a cowboy,       on a steel horse I ride.

         C        - G     F          D       C       - G   F           D 

I'm wanted,        dead or alive, wanted,     dead or alive.

 

              D                           C                        G

2. Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days,

                    C                   - G              F           C              D

    and the people I meet,        always go their separate ways.

                                                             C                     G

    Sometimes you tell the day, by the bottle that you drink,

            C                             G            F         C        D

    and times when you're alone and all you do is think.

         D                                      C                        G

3. I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back,

          C                   - G                F               C        D

     I play for keeps,       'cause I might not make it back.

                                         C           G

    I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall,

             C                   G                      F           C    D

    I've seen a million faces, and I've rocked them all.

 

       C          - G            F               D   

    I'm a cowboy,       on a steel horse I ride.

            C        - G      F          D      

    I'm wanted,        dead or alive.

              C         -  G                 F                 D   

    I'm a cowboy,       I got the night on my side,

            C          - G    F          D       C        - G    F          D

    I'm wanted,        dead or alive, wanted,       dead or alive…
