cocaine blues

Johnny Cash



 C
 EARLY ONE MORNIN' WHILE MAKIN' THE ROUNDS
 G
I TOOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AND SHOT MY WOMAN DOWN
I WENT RIGHT HOME AND I WENT TO BED
 CGC
I STUCK THAT LOVIN' 44 BENEATH MY HEAD 
GOT UP NEXT MORNIN' AND I GRABBED THAT GUN
 G
TOOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AND AWAY I RUN
MADE A GOOD RUN BUT I RUN TOO SLOW
 CGC
                                     THEY OVERTOOK ME DOWN IN JUAREZ MEXICO
LAID IN THE HOT JOINT TAKIN' THE PILL
 G
 IN WALKED A SHERIFF FROM JERICHO HILL
HE SAID WILLY LEE YOUR NAME IS NOT JACK BROWN
 CGC
                                    YOU'RE THE DIRTY HACK THAT SHOT YOUR WOMAN DOWN
OH YES OH YES MY NAME IS WILLIE LEE
 G
IF YOU'VE GOT A WARRANT JUST A READ IT TO ME
I SHOT HER DOWN CAUSE SHE MADE ME SORE
 CGC
                                    I THOUGHT I WAS HER DADDY BUT SHE HAD FIVE MORE
WHEN I WAS ARRESTED I WAS DRESSED IN BLACK
 G
THEY PUT ME ON A TRAIN AND THEY TOOK ME BACK
I HAD NO FRIEND FOR TO GO MY BAIL
 CGC
                                    THEY SLAPPED MY DRIED UP CARCUS IN THE COUNTY JAIL
EARLEY NEXT MORNING ABOUT A HALF PAST NINE
 G
 I SPOTTED A SHERIFF WALKIN' DOWN THE LINE
MY DADDY COUGHED AS HE CLEARED HIS THROAT
 CG
                                    HE SAID COME ON YOU DIRTY HACK INTO THE DISTRICT
 C
 COURT
INTO THE COURT ROOM MY TRIAL BEGAN
 G
WHERE I WAS HELD  BY TWELVE HONEST MEN
BEFORE THE JURY STARTED OUT
 CGC
                                     I SAW THAT LITTLE JUDGE COMMENCE TO LOOK ABOUT
IN A BOUT FIVE MINUTES IN WALKED A MAN
 G
 HOLDING THE VERDICT IN HIS RIGHT HAND
THE VERDICT READ IN THE FIRST DEGREE
 CGC
I HOLLERED LORDY LORDY HAVE MERCY ON ME 
THE JUDGE HE SMILED AS HE PICKED UP HIS PEN
 G
 NINETY NINE YEARS IN THE FOLSOM PEN
NINETY NINE YEARS UNDERNEATH THAT GROUND
 CGC
                                    I CAN'T FORGET THE DAY I SHOT THAT BAD BITCH DOWN
 F
COME ON COME ON AND LISTEN UNTO ME
 GC
                                    STAY OFF THAT WHISKEY AND LET THAT COCAINE BE
