Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cocaine Blues  Johnny Cash

[C]EARLY ONE MORNIN' WHILE MAKIN' THE ROUNDS
I TOOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AND [G]SHOT MY WOMAN DOWN

I WENT RIGHT HOME AND I WENT TO BED
I [C]STUCK THAT LOVIN' 44 BENEATH MY HEAD                            

[C]GOT UP NEXT MORNIN'  AND I GRABBED THAT GUN
TOOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AND [G]AWAY I RUN

MADE A GOOD RUN BUT I RUN TOO SLOW
THEY [C]OVERTOOK ME DOWN IN JUAREZ MEXICO

[C]LAID IN THE HOT JOINT TAKIN' THE PILL
IN WALKED A SHERIFF FROM [G]JERACO HILL

HE SAID WILLY LEE YOUR NAME IS NOT JACK BROWN
[C]YOU'RE THE DIRTY HOP HEAD THAT SHOT YOUR WOMAN DOWN

[C]OH YES OH YES MY NAME IS WILLIE LEE
IF YOU'VE GOT A WARRANT JUST A [G]READ IT TO ME

I SHOT HER DOWN CAUSE SHE MADE ME SLOW
I [C]THOUGHT I WAS HER DADDY BUT SHE HAD FIVE MORE

[C]WHEN I WAS ARRESTED I WAS DRESSED IN BLACK
THEY PUT ME ON A TRAIN AND THEY [G]TOOK ME BACK

I HAD NO FRIEND FOR TO GO MY BAIL
THEY [C]SLAPPED MY DRIED UP CARCUS IN THE COUNTY JAIL

[C]EARLY THE NEXT MORNING ABOUT A HALF PAST NINE
I SPIED A SHERIFF WALKIN' [G]DOWN THE LINE

AND THEN COUGHED AS HE CLEARED HIS THROAT
HE SAID COME [C]ON YOU DIRTY HACK INTO THE DISTRICT COURT

[C]INTO THE COURT ROOM MY TRIAL BEGAN
WHERE I WAS HELD  BY [G]TWELVE HONEST MEN

JUST BEFORE THE JURY STARTED OUT
I [C]SAW THAT LITTLE JUDGE COMMENCE TO LOOK ABOUT

[C]IN A BOUT FIVE MINUTES IN WALKED A MAN
HOLDING THE VERDICT IN [G]HIS RIGHT HAND

THE VERDICT READ IN THE FIRST DEGREE
I [C]HOLLERED LORDY LORDY HAVE MERCY ON ME                  

[C]THE JUDGE HE SMILED AS HE PICKED UP HIS PEN
NINETY NINE YEARS IN THE [G]FOLSOM PEN

NINETY NINE YEARS UNDERNEATH THAT GROUND
I [C]CAN'T FORGET THE DAY I SHOT THAT BAD BITCH DOWN
[C]COME ON YOU GOTTA LISTEN [F]UNTO ME                                  
JUST[G]LAY OFF THAT WHISKEY AND LET THAT COCAINE [C]BE
