[C]Cold iron shackles, ball and chain.[G]  [C]
Drink all day and rock all night.
I run into Charlie Fog.
[F]Listen to the whistle of the [G]evenin' [C]train.[G]  [C]
The law come to get you if you don't walk right.
Blacked my eye and he kicked my dog.
[C7]                [B7]     [Bb7]         [G] [C]
You know you bound to wind up dead
Got a letter this mornin', baby and all it read:
My doggie turned to me and he said.
[C]if you [F]don't head back to Ten[G]nessee [C]Jed.[G]  [C]
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed."
"Let's head back to Tennesse Jed."

[C]Rich man step on my poor head. [G]  [C]
I dropped four flights and cracked my spine.
I woke up feelin' mean.
[F]When you get back, you better [G]butter my [C]bread.[G]  [C]
Honey, come quick with the iodine.
I went down to play the slot machine.
Co7 Dm7 C7
Well you know it's like I said:
Catch a few winks, baby, under the bed.
The wheels turned around and the letters read,
[C]you [F]better head back to T[G]ennessee [C]Jed.
Then you head back to Tennessee Jed.
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed."

[F]Tennessee, Tennessee, there [C]ain't no place I'd [G]rather b[F]e.
[C]Baby won't you [G]carry [F]me
[C]back to[G] Tennes[F]see. [G]  [C]
