Verse: 1  (Johnny Cash)

Am				          F
I am a shotgun rider for the San Jacinto line
       C	                                  G
The desert is my brother, my skin is cracked and dry
   Am					        F
I was riding on a folk coach, and everything was fine
C				     G
Til we took a shorter road to save some time
         F				         C
The bandits only fired once, they shot me in the chest
C						     G
They  may have wounded me, but they`ll never get the best
          Am	 		
Of better men, cause I`ll ride again.

I was shufflin` for some delta boys on the boat for New Orelans
C				     G
I was the greatest shark they`d ever seen
F				         C
But the Captain bumped a sandbar, and an ace fell from my sleeve
C					     G
The threw me overboard as I swore I didn`t cheat
        Am
But I could swim, and I`ll ride again

We are heros of the homeland, American remains
F			        Am
We live in many faces and answer many names
      C				            G
We will not be forgotten, we won`t be left behind
 F				  G
Our memories live on in mortal minds
  	    Am		         
And poets pens, we`ll ride again

I am a mid-west farmer, I make a livin` off the land
 C				             G
I ride a John Deer tractor, I`am a liberated man
Am					        F
But the rain it hasn`t fallen, since the middle of July
C				        G
And if it don`t come soon my crops will die
F				         C
The bank man says he likes me, but there`s nothin`he can do

He tells me that he`s comin`, but the clounds are comin` too

He ain`t my friend, and I`ll ride again.

And he who trys to beat her down will lose her to the rest
