He had white horses and ladies by the score
G              D         G             D
All dressed in satin and waiting by the door

White lace and feathers, they made up his bed
  G            D           G            D
A gold covered mattress on which he was led

A bullet had found him, his blood ran as he cried
   G           D              G                D
No money could save him so he laid down and he died

Am            Em           D
