Old Red

Blake Shelton

 E
 Well I caught my wife with another man
 DAE
And it cost me ninety-nine
 E
 On a prison farm in Georgia
 B
Close to the Florida line
 E
 Well I've been here for two long years
 DAE
 I finally made the warden my friend
 E
 And so he sentenced me to a life of ease
 BE
 Taking care of Ol' Red

Now Ol' Red he's the damndest dog
That I've ever seen
Got a nose that can smell a two day trail
He's a four legged tracking machine
You can consider yourself mighty lucky to get past
The gators and the quicksand beds
But all these years that I been here
Ain't nobody got past Red

Chorus:
 E
 And the warden sang,
 E7EE7E
 Come on somebody why don't you run
 E7EBE
 Ol' Red's itchin to have a little fun
 E7EE7E
 Get my lantern, get my gun
 E7EBE
 Red'll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

 EDA

Well I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter
To my cousin up in Tennessee
Oh and he brought down a blue tick hound
She was pretty as she could be
Well the penned her up in the swampland
About a mile just south of the gate
And I'd take Ol' Red for his evening run
I'd just drop him off and wait

 E
 And the warden sang,
 E7EE7E
 Come on somebody why don't you run
 E7EBE
 Ol' Red's itchin to have a little fun
 E7EE7E
 Get my lantern, get my gun
 E7EBE
 Red'll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

 EDA

Now Ol' Red got real used to seeing
His lady every night
And so I kept him away for three or four days
And waited til the time got right
Well I made my run with the evening sun
And I smiled when I heard ‘em turn Red out
Cause I was headed north to Tennessee
And Ol' Red was headed south

 E
 And the warden sang,
 E7EE7E
 Come on somebody why don't you run
 E7EBE
 Ol' Red's itchin to have a little fun
 E7EE7E
 Get my lantern, get my gun
 E7EBE
 Red'll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

 EDA

 E
 Now there's red hair blue ticks all in the south
 EBE
 Love got me in here and love got me out

The END!
