Ballad of curtis lowe

Lynyrd Skynyrd

 EB
Well, I used to wake the mornin before the rooster crowed,
 EAF#
 Searchin for soda bottles to get myself some dough,
 EB
 Run em down to the corner, down to the country store,
 AE
  Cash em in, and give my money to a man named Curtis Loew,

(verse 2)
 EBAE
 Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair,
 EBAE
 When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care,
 EBAE
 He used to own an old Dobro, used to play it across his knee,
 EBAE
 I give old Curt my money, he play all day for me,

(chorus)
 AEE7
Play me a song, Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew,
 AEE7
Well, I got your drinkin money, tune up your Dobro.
 AEF#
People said he was useless, them people all were fools,
 EDAE-D-E
Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues     

(verse 3)
He looked to be sixty, and maybe I was ten,
Mama used to whup me, but I'd go see him again,
I clap my hands, stomp my feets, try to stay in time,
He'd play a song or two, then take another drink of wine,

(chorus)
 AEE7
Play me a song, Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew,
 AEE7
Well, I got your drinkin money, tune up your Dobro.
 AEF#
People said he was useless, them people all were fools,
 EDAE-
Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues,
