A Girl Named Johnny Cash-crd

Novelty

 G#
  Started out in Tennessee in 1944;
 C#
When the  doctor hollered; "it's a girl"; My father hit the floor
 G#
Then he  hit the bottle; And he signed his name; And he drove off in the NASH
 EbG#
And  when that sun came up again; He'd named me JOHNNY  CASH.
 F#
.. HMM! HMM!  

 F#
  So at 22 I left my home; To Nashville I did go
 B
To  try to land me a little job; Had to earn myself some dough
 F#
I was  workin' in a diner; In a hair-net servin' hash
 C#F#
And  on my little apron; Was embroidered JOHNNY  CASH.
 E
.. HMM! HMM!  

 E
  I could-a had my pick of men; If I'd been named LUCILLE
 A
BUt  when they saw my uniform; They just laughed and ate their meals
 E
So  I just drink my coffe black; In back behind the trash
 BE
And  curse that lousy drunkard; Who had named me JOHNNY  CASH.

HALF OF FOLSOM PRISON BLUES TURN AROUND

Then I walked the streets of Nashville; I was feelin' low and lost
Thought I'd go and change my name; No matter what it cost
I stood in line behind a man; Who turned and in a flash
He said; "My name is Sue"; And I said; "Great, I'm Johnny Cash."
 F#
.. HMM! HMM!  

(SAME CHORDS AS 2nd VERSE)
Now me and Sue is married; With a little boy and girl
The boy was christened Jessica; And the girl was christened Earl
And when my Sue comes home from work; It's up the stairs we dash
'Cause I love to hear my little Susie say; "I love you - JOHNNY CASH."

TAG: SAME CLOSE AS ON FOLSOM PRISON BLUES.
