[VERSE:]
 G                         Bm
Them old timers they come rolling in
 C                             D
Grab themselves a seat by the fire
  G                 Bm
Their old faces so scarred and worn,
         C                       D
They’re wild like the land they ride
 G                           
They tell their tales of how 
     Bm
they owe their lives
    C                  D
To buckskin mules and old buck knives,
G                  Bm
No true love they sacrificed
          C          D
For them old coyote lives

[CHORUS:]
Am                 Em          D
  So throw another log on the fire
                      Em   D      C
Hear the tales of the old west revival
             G                  D  D
Take a load off, listen for a while
Am        Em                D
  Take a pull and pass the bottle
                    Em  
Pass it over to the old 
 D        C

[VERSE:]
  G                        Bm
Sheep Beater Jim, used to ride 
with him
        C                     D
On the old trap lines in the howlin’ 
wind
       G                    Bm
But a few good years on the Upper 
Green,
          C                     D
‘Til the law came in like some new 
machine
           G                 Bm
Went from getting’ skins to crude 
run-ins
 C              D
Crooked lawmen creepin’ in
          G                   
And they took their land with 
       Bm
their guns and greed
          C                  
And they shot Jimmy down and 
      D
they watched him bleed

[CHORUS:]
Am                 Em          D
  So throw another log on the fire
                      Em  
Hear the tales of the old 
 D      C

             G                  D  D
Take a load off, listen for a while

[VERSE:]
 G                     Bm
Them old stories they start to fade
          C                 D
With the howling wolves of yesterday
 G               Bm
Cattle wars and unsettled scores
         C                       D
Between outlaw brothers and two bit 
whores
      G                  Bm
And though they died so long ago
                    C           
Feels like they’re right by the 
         D
fire to take a pull
           G                  Bm
And we'll never know all the seeds 
they sow
           C                    D   
When they yoked that wagon and said 
            Am
goodbye Chicago

[CHORUS:]
 Am                 Em         D
