jacob green  Johnny Cash



1) J[G]acob Green got busted for possession
next morning early he appeared in [D]court
But he [G]was sent to jail to wait
to be trialed [Am]at some later d[D]ate
Next m[G]orning early, there came a sad re[D]port
At the[G] jail they took away his clothes to shame him
and to make sure Jacob Green had no pride l[D]eft
They[G] cut of all his h[Am]air
Today they[G] found him hanging [D]there
[G]afraid to face th[D]e day he killed h[G]imself
CHORUS:
It h[C]appened yester[D]day, and if you t[C]urn your head a[G]way
So[G]mewhere in some d[G]irty hole the sc[D]ene will be rer[G]un
Not o[C]nly Jacob Gr[D]een, but many m[C]ore you've never s[G]een
It could be s[G]omeone that you lo[D]ve gets[G] done
like J[D]acob Green got[G] done
It could be s[G]omeone that you l[D]ove gets [G]done
like J[D]acob Green got [G]done
2)Jacobs father hired a team of lawyers
inspections and long inquiries were held
The sheriff then retired
and the papers said two guards were fired
They put a brand new coat of paint on Jacob's cell
But like a tomb that looks so white and shiny
inside you'll find corruption never seen
And somewhere out there tonight
In a dirty cell without a light
There will be locked up another Jacob Green
CHORUS:
It h[C]appened yester[D]day, and if you t[C]urn your head a[G]way
So[G]mewhere in some d[G]irty hole the sc[D]ene will be rer[G]un
Not o[C]nly Jacob Gr[D]een, but many m[C]ore you've never s[G]een
It could be s[G]omeone that you lo[D]ve gets[G] done
like J[D]acob Green got[G] done
It could be s[G]omeone that you l[D]ove gets [G]done
like J[D]acob Green got [G]done
