Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


cocaine blues  Johnny Cash



[C]EARLY ONE MORNIN' WHILE MAKIN' THE ROUNDS
I T[G]OOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AND SHOT MY WOMAN DOWN
I WENT RIGHT HOME AND I WENT TO BED
I STUCK[C] THAT LOVIN' 44 BENEATH MY HEAD[G] [C]
GOT UP NEXT MORNIN' AND I GRABBED THAT GUN
TOOK A SHOT OF COC[G]AINE AND AWAY I RUN
MADE A GOOD RUN BUT I RUN TOO SLOW
                  [C]                  [G] [C]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
[C]                                   [G]YOU'RE THE DIR[C]TY HACK THAT SHOT YOUR WOMAN DOWN
OH YES OH YES MY NAME IS WILLIE LEE
IF YOU'VE [G]GOT A WARRANT JUST A READ IT TO ME
I SHOT HER DOWN CAUSE SHE MADE ME SORE
        [C]                            [G]I THOUGHT[C] I WAS HER DADDY BUT SHE HAD FIVE MORE
WHEN I WAS ARRESTED I WAS DRESSED IN BLACK
THEY PUT ME O[G]N A TRAIN AND THEY TOOK ME BACK
I HAD NO FRIEND FOR TO GO MY BAIL
              [C]                      [G]THEY SLAPPE[C]D 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
                           [C]         HE SAID[G] COME ON YOU DIRTY HACK INTO THE DISTRICT
[C]COURT
INTO THE COURT ROOM MY TRIAL BEGAN
WHERE I WAS H[G]ELD  BY TWELVE HONEST MEN
BEFORE THE JURY STARTED OUT
[C]                                    [G]I SAW THAT LI[C]TTLE 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
I[C] HOLLERED LORDY LORDY HAVE MERCY ON ME[G] [C]
THE JUDGE HE SMILED AS HE PICKED UP HIS PEN
[G]NINETY NINE YEARS IN THE FOLSOM PEN
NINETY NINE YEARS UNDERNEATH THAT GROUND
     [C]                               [G]I CAN'T FORG[C]ET THE DAY I SHOT THAT BAD BITCH DOWN
COME ON COME ON AND LISTEN UNTO ME[F]
                                    [G]STAY OFF TH[C]AT WHISKEY AND LET THAT COCAINE BE
