I could be wrong but I have seen your face before

Am           G              C                Dm
You were the man that I saw running from the store

Dm                        C                  Bb     
You ordered money but you gave him something more

With a gun      with a gun

Am       Bb          C            Bb
You will be what you are just the same

Bb      F             G            A             G
Did you pay the other man with the piece in your hand

   F         Em           Dm      G
Or leave him lying in the rain


Verse 2:

Am           G               F      G      Am
You were the founders of the clinic on the hill

Am         G                    C              Dm
Until they caught you with your fingers in the till

Dm                          C               Bb
He slapped your hand so you settled up your bill

With a gun      with a gun

You will be what you are just the same

Bb      F             G            A             G
Did you pay the other man with the piece in your hand

   F         Em           Dm     
Or leave him lying in the rain



Middle 8:
---------

Dm          Em
When you're born to play the fool
 
Em                      Bb   
And you've seen all the western movies 

A          G               F#m
Woe to the one who does it wrong

       D    A      C  G   E          D
You'll hide in the bushes murder the man

     E        D
With Luger in hand

Am      G                  F       G       Am    
I understand that you will soon be leaving town

Am           G                 C                 Dm
Don't try to call me when they finally track you down

Dm                         C             Bb
Just give fair warning any time you come around



Chorus:
--------

       Gm   Am         Gm    Am
With a gun      with a gun

You will be what you are just the same

Bb      F             G            A            G
Did you pay the other man with the piece in the hand

Or leave him lying in the rain
