Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


A Girl Named Johnny Cash-crd  Novelty

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

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

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

(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.
