 CGC
 Cold iron shackles, ball and chain.   
Drink all day and rock all night.
I run into Charlie Fog.
 FGCGC
 Listen to the whistle of the evenin' train.  
The law come to get you if you don't walk right.
Blacked my eye and he kicked my dog.
 C7B7Bb7GC
                                
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.
 CFGCGC
 if you don't head back to Tennessee Jed.  
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed."
"Let's head back to Tennesse Jed."

 CGC
 Rich man step on my poor head.   
I dropped four flights and cracked my spine.
I woke up feelin' mean.
 FGCGC
 When you get back, you better butter my bread.  
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,
 CFGC
 you better head back to Tennessee Jed.
Then you head back to Tennessee Jed.
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed."

 FCGF
 Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be.
 CGF
 Baby won't you carry me
 CGFGC
 back to Tennessee.
