Intro: A   A 
                                                                                     
  A                                  E                  A
A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm,
                                  E              A                     
a boy filled with wanderlust, who really meant no harm.
   D 
He changed his clothes and shined his boots and combed his dark hair down.
        A
And his mother cried as he walked out,
       D                 A
"don't take your guns to town, son.
D                  A
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
      D                 A
Don't take your guns to town."
   A                                        E               A
He laughed and kissed his mom and said, "your Billy Joe's a man.
                                    E            A     
I can shoot as quick and straight as  anybody can
      D
But I wouldn't shoot without a cause, I'd gun nobody down."
        A
But she cried again as he rode away,
       D                 A
"don't take your guns to town, son.
D                  A
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
      D                 A
Don't take your guns to town."
   A                       E                   A
He sang as on he rode, his guns hung at his hips.
                             E              A 
He rode into a cattle town, a smile upon his lips.
   D
He stopped and walked into a bar and laid his money down.
        A
But his mother's words echoed again:
       D                 A
"don't take your guns to town, son.
D                  A
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
      D                 A
Don't take your guns to town."
   A                                    E                A   
He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand,
                                    E           A
and tried to tell himself at last he had become a man.
  D 
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down.
       A
And he heard again his mother's words:
       D                 A
"don't take your guns to town, son.
D                  A
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
       D                A
Don't take your guns to town."
A                                     E              A
Filled with rage the Billy Joe reached for his gun to Draw
                                           E              A   
but the stranger drew his gun and fired before he even saw.
   D
As Billy Joe fell to the floor the crowd all gathered 'round
    A
and wondered at his final words:
       D                 A
"don't take your guns to town, son.
D                            A
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
      D                 A
Don't take your guns to town."

About the artist behind Dont Take Your Guns To Town Chords:

Johnny Cash, born J. R. Cash, (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was a Grammy Award-winning American country singer-songwriter. Cash is widely considered to be one of the most influential American musicians of the 20th century.

Cash was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or "freight train" sound of his Tennessee Three backing band, his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black." He traditionally started his concerts with the introduction "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."

Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. His signature songs include "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire," "Get Rhythm," "That Old Wheel" (a duet with Hank Williams Jr.), "Cocaine Blues," and "Man in Black". He also recorded several humorous songs, such as "One Piece at a Time," "The One on the Right Is on the Left," "Dirty Old Egg-Sucking Dog," "A Boy Named Sue," and a duet with June Carter called "Jackson"; and various railroad songs, such as "Rock Island Line" and "Orange Blossom Special".

He sold over 90 million albums in his nearly fifty-year career and came to occupy a "commanding position in music history".[1]
