Coward Of The County4-crd

Kenny Rogers

 CFC
 Everyone considered him the coward of the county
 G
He never stood one single time to prove the county wrong
 CFC
 His mama named him Tommy, but folks just called him yellow
 GC
Something always told me they were reading tommy wrong
(vs. 2)
Chorus. 1
 CFC
 Promise me son not to do the things I've done
 CG
 Walk away from trouble if you can
 CFC
 Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek
 G
I hope you're old enough to understand
 FGC
 You don't have to fight to be a man
vs. 3
 C#F#C#
 There's someone for everyone and Tommy's love was Becky
 G#
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man

 One day while he was workin', the Gatlin Boys came callin'
 G#
They took turns at Becky (spoken in disgust) there wre three of them.
(vs. 4)
