performed by Billy Joe Shaver and Waylon Jennings. 
 
 
 
Verse 1: 
     Em                                 Am  
	Jesse lit us up and passed the bottle one more time 
                                               Em 
	We used to smoke and drink a lot back then 
                                           Am 
	Thunder shook the heavens and the lightning danced the sky 
                                                Em  
	Like i ain't seen since can't remember when 
 
 
Verse 2: 
     Em                              Am 
	The Oklahoma kid laid dying in a women's wing 
                                    Em 
	Just another indian biting dust 
                                              Am  
	Clouds grew dark in promise but they didn't rain a thing 
                                                Em  
	The government ain't something you can trust 
 
 
Bridge: 
               G         A             D                G        
	Oh the Oklahoma wind slides across the burning sand 
            G            A               Em 
	Over double crosses mother nature made 
 
 
Verse 3: 
     Em                                   Am    
	We picked a gig in Tulsa at the Cains ballroom that night 
                                       Em 
	The Oklahoma kid was dead and gone 
                                          Am 
	Rains still hadn't come but the clouds still blacked the sky 
                                                                  Em 
	That's when i took the time to write this song about the wrong 
 
 
Chorus: 
                G        A             D                G  
	Oh the Oklahoma wind slides across the burning sand 
                          A               Em     
	Over double crosses mother nature made 
             G              A       D             G 
	And nothing's ever come as far as i'm concerned  
                                 A               Em   
	From those dead tomorrows planted yesterday 
 
 
Verse 4:(Waylon) 
     Em                                          Am 
	The white man took a chance and got his foot hung in the door 
                                           Em 
	He sure as hell is gonna have his day 
                                              Am                              
	The redman speaks his peace gain his long lost dignity 
                                          Em 
	Washington just turned the other way 
 
 
Verse 5:(Waylon) 
     Em                                Am 
	Jesse spends his days in Loco Hills New Mexico 
                                           Em  
	Every night he drinks his fill of booze 
                                           Am 
	When Williams ghost is running he lays his money down 
                                                Em   
	Winning just enough to lose to lose to lose ...
