Em    - 022000

Am    - X02210


G                      
  As the sun is sinking low

        C                   Cm
And the evening's tucked in tow

       G        Gmaj7 Em          D   D7
On the horizon, my    true love I see

          G                G7
She ain't fancy, she ain't fine

          C                   Cm
While her fingers number only nine

          G        Gmaj7 Em            D
She's the belle of the   ball of the insurgency


         G                               Em
She's my bandit queen laying beneath the moon

     C                               D
In a bandit cave, a blanket laid for two

           G                                  Em
If I could find a way to your hideaway by the sea

    C            D              G  G Gmaj7
Oh, bandit queen, steal away to me


Em
Somewhere on a mountain by a starry water fountain

      G                        G7
In an alcove hid by some trees

 Em
Amidst a pile of treasure, reclining at her leisure

   C                       D
My lady love sniffs at the breeze

   C
And sitting up she adjusts her turban

    G                         
And takes another swig from a bottle of bourbon

    Am
And listening to the whistling of the train in station

D                      
Odds are it will never reach its destination


           G                                   Em
'Cause the bandit queen astride her steed will ride

    C                    D                               G
Oh, let me be the one to lay within your thievin' arms tonight


G Gmaj7 Em C D D7



         G                               Em
She's my bandit queen laying beneath the moon

     C                                       D
In a bandit cave, there's a blanket laid for two

           G                                  Em
If I could find a way to your hideaway by the sea

    C            D              G Gmaj7 Em
Oh, bandit queen, steal away to me

    C            D              G
Oh, bandit queen, steal away to me
