Tougher Than Leather
written and recorded by Willie Nelson
[3/4 time]


G G7
He was tougher than leather and he didn't care
C
Whether the sun shined or not
D7
When a young kid in Cow Town wanted a showdown
G
He was careless or just maybe forgot


But he died in the gunfight blinded by sunlight
G7 C
Never draw when you're facing the sun
D7
And old tougher than leather
G
Just carved one more notch on his gun

D7
And when he turned to go the beautiful maiden knelt down
G
Where her dead sweetheart lay
A7
And on his breast placed a rose
D7
While the townspeople stared in dismay

G
And old tougher than leather should've known better
D7
But he picked up the rose in his hand

And the townspeople froze when his hands crushed the rose
G
And the rose petals fell in the sand


And old tougher than leather was a full-time go-getter
D7
The grass never grew beneath his feet

From one town to another he would ride like the wind
G
But his mind kept going back to the street


Where a young cowboy died and a young maiden cried
D7
And rose petals fell in the sand

And his heart had been softened by the beautiful maid
G
And he knew he must see her again


Well he went back to the town where it all had come down
D7
And he searched but his search was in vain

He had wanted to find her and say he was sorry
G
For causing her heart so much pain


But one night he died from a poison inside
D7
Brought on by the wrong he had done

And old tougher than leather
G
Had carved his last notch on his gun


Well he was buried in Cow Town along about sundown
D7
Looking good in his new store-bought clothes

When the young maiden came over and knelt down beside him
G
And on his lapel placed a rose

C
There's a bird in the sky
G
Flying high flying high
D7
To a place from a place
G
Changing skies changing skies
