Curtis Lowe

Lynyrd Skynyrd

 DA
Well I used to wake the mornin' before the rooster crowed
 DGE
 Searchin for soda bottles to get myself some dough
 DA
 Brung em down to the corner, down to the country store
 GD
 Cash em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Lowe

 DAGD
 Ol' Curt was a black man with white curly hair
 DAGD
 When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care
 DAGD
 He used to own an old dobro used to play it 'cross his knee
 DAGD
 I'd give Ol' Curt my money, he'd play all day for me

Chorus
 GD
 Play me a song, Curtis Lowe, hey Curtis Lowe
 GD
 I got your drinkin' money, tune up your dobro
 GDE
 People said you was useless but them people all were fools
 DAGD
 Cause Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

 DAGD
 He looked to be 60, maybe I was 10
 DAGD
 Mama used to whoop me but I'd go see him again
 DAGD
 I'd clap my hands, stomp my feets tryin' to stay in time
 DAGD
 He'd play me song or two then take another drink of wine

Chorus

 DAGD
 On the day Ol' Curtis died nobody came to pray
 DAGD
 Old preacher said some words and they chucked him in the clay
 DAGD
 He lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
 DAGD
 And on the day he lost his life that's all he had to lose

 GD
 Play me a song Curtis Lowe, hey Curtis Lowe
 GD
 I wish that you was here so everyone would know
 GDE
 People said you was useless but them people all were fools
 DAGD
Cause Curtis, you're the finest picker to ever play the blues
