Don't Take Your Guns To Town
Words and music by Johnny Cash

G
A young cowboy named Billy Joe
D7 G
Grew restless on the farm

A boy filled with wanderlust
D7 G
Who really meant no harm
C
He changed his clothes and shined his boots

And combed his dark hair down
G
And his mother cried as he walked out

C G
Don't Take Your Guns To Town son
C G
Leave your guns at home Bill
C G
Don't Take Your Guns To Town

Repeat #2
D7 G
He laughed and kissed his mom and said your Billy Joe's a man
D7 G
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
C
But I'd wouldn't shoot without a cause
G
I'd gun nobody down but she cried again as he rode away

Repeat #2
D7 G
He sang a song as on he rode his guns hung at his hips
D7 G
He rode into a cattle town a smile upon his lips
C
He stopped and walked into a bar and laid his money down
G
But his mother's words echoed again

Repeat #2
D7 G
He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
D7 G
And tried to tell himself at last he had become a man
C
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
G
And he heard again his mother's words

Repeat #2
D7 G
Bill was raged and Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw
D7 G
But the stranger drew his gun and fired before he even saw
C
As Billy Joe fell to the floor the crowd all gathered around
G
And wondered at his final words
