jacob green

Johnny Cash



 G
1) Jacob Green got busted for possession
 D
next morning early he appeared in court
 G
But he was sent to jail to wait
 AmD
to be trialed at some later date
 GD
Next morning early, there came a sad report
 G
At the jail they took away his clothes to shame him
 D
and to make sure Jacob Green had no pride left
 GAm
They cut of all his hair
 GD
Today they found him hanging there
 GDG
 afraid to face the day he killed himself
CHORUS:
 CDCG
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away
 GGDG
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun
 CDCG
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen
 GDG
It could be someone that you love gets done
 DG
like Jacob Green got done
 GDG
It could be someone that you love gets done
 DG
like Jacob Green got 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:
 CDCG
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away
 GGDG
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun
 CDCG
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen
 GDG
It could be someone that you love gets done
 DG
like Jacob Green got done
 GDG
It could be someone that you love gets done
 DG
like Jacob Green got done
