Curtis Lowe  Lynyrd Skynyrd

Well I u[D]sed to wake the mornin' bef[A]ore the rooster crowed
[D]Searchin for soda bottles to[G] get myself some d[E]ough
[D]Brung em down to the corner, [A]down to the country store
[G]Cash em in and give my money to a man named Curtis[D] Lowe

[D]Ol' Curt was a[A] black man with w[G]hite curly [D]hair
[D]When he had a [A]fifth of wine he d[G]id not have a [D]care
[D]He used to own an old do[A]bro used to p[G]lay it 'cross his k[D]nee
[D]I'd give Ol' C[A]urt my money, he'd p[G]lay all day for [D]me

[G]Play me a song, Curtis L[D]owe, hey Curtis Lowe
[G]I got your drinkin' money, t[D]une up your dobro
[G]People said you was useless but them p[D]eople all were f[E]ools
[D]Cause Curtis Lowe was the f[A]inest picker to e[G]ver play the [D]blues

[D]He looked to be[A] 60, m[G]aybe I was [D]10
[D]Mama used to w[A]hoop me but I'd [G]go see him aga[D]in
[D]I'd clap my hands, st[A]omp my feets [G]tryin' to stay in [D]time
[D]He'd play me s[A]ong or two then [G]take another drink of [D]wine

[D]On the day Ol' C[A]urtis died no[G]body came to [D]pray
[D]Old preacher s[A]aid some words and they ch[G]ucked him in the c[D]lay
[D]He lived a l[A]ifetime [G]playin' the black man's b[D]lues
[D]And on the day he lo[A]st his life that's a[G]ll he had to l[D]ose

[G]Play me a song Curtis L[D]owe, hey Curtis Lowe
[G]I wish that you was here so e[D]veryone would know
[G]People said you was useless but them p[D]eople all were f[E]ools
Cause C[D]urtis, you're the f[A]inest picker to [G]ever play the [D]blues
