Ballad Of Curtis Loew  Lynyrd Skynyrd

Well, I [E]used to wake the mornin' [B]before the rooster crowed,
[E]Searchin' for soda bottles to [A]get myself some [F#]dough.
[E]Run 'em down to the corner, [B]down to the country store,
[A]Cash 'em in, and give my money to a man named Curtis [E]Loew.
Verse:
[E]Old Curt was a [B]black man with [A]white cu[G]-rly [E]hair,
[E]When he had a fifth of [B]wine he [D]did not have a [A]care,[G] [E]
[E]He used to own an old [B]Do-bro, used to [A]play it '[G]cross his k[E]nees
[E]I give old Curt my [B]money, he [D]play all day for [E]me.[A]
Chorus:
[A]Play me a song, Curtis [E]Loew, Curtis Loew,[A]
[A]Well, I got your drinkin' money, [E]tune up your Dobro.[A]
[A]People said he was useless, them [E]people all were [F#]fools,
'Cause C[E]urtis Loew was the [D]finest picker to [A]ever play the [E]blues[E] [D] [A] [G] [E]
verse
[E]He looked to be [B]sixty, [A]and maybe [G]I was [E]ten,
Mama used to [B]whoop me, but I'd [D]go see him [A]again[G].
[E]I clap my hands, [B]stomp my feets, [A]try to [G]stay in [E]time,
[E]He'd play a [B]song or two, then [D]take another drink of [E]wine.
Chorus:
[A]Play me a song, Curtis [E]Loew, Curtis Loew,[A]
[A]Well, I got your drinkin' money, [E]tune up your Dobro.[A]
[A]People said he was useless, them [E]people all were [F#]fools,
'Cause C[E]urtis Loew was the [D]finest picker to [A]ever play the [E]blues[E] [D] [A] [G] [E]
verse
[E]On the day ole [B]Cur-tis died no_[A]bod-y [G]came to [E]pray,__ old preacher
[B]said some words and [D]they chunked him in the [A]clay.[G]
[E]well he lived a [B]life-time [A]play-in the [G]black mans_ [E]blues
[E]and on the [B]day he lost his life thats [D]all he had to [E]lose
Chorus:
[A]Play me a song, Curtis [E]Loew, Curtis Loew,[A]
[A]I wish that you was here __ so [E]ev-ry one would know
