Cocaine Blues  Johnny Cash

Standard tunning: Capo 4
Chords: A,E.
[A]Early one mornin while making the rounds, I
took a shot of cocaine and I shot[E] my woman
down, I went right home and I went to bed!
[A]I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head.
[A]Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun.
I took a shot of cocaine a[E]nd away I run,
made a good run but I run to slow
[A]they over took me down in Juarez, Mexico!
[A]Late in the hot joints takin' the pills
in walked the sheriff from[E] Jericho Hill.
He said willy Lee your name is not Jack
Brown! Y[A]ou're they dirty hack that shot your
woman down![A]I said oh yes my name is Willy
Lee, if you got a warrant [E]aread it to me.
Shot her down because she made me slow.
[A]I thought I was her daddy but she had 5 more
[A]When I was arrested I was dressed in black
they put me on a train and they[E] took me back
had no friend for to go my bail
[A]they slapped my dried up carcass in that
county jail. [A]Early next mornin' bout a half
past nine,I spied a sheriff comin[E] down the
line; talked and he coughed as he cleared
his throat. [A]He said come on you dirty hack
into that district court! [A]Into the court
room my trial began. Where I was held by[E] 12
honest men. Just before the jury started out
[A]I saw that little judge commence to look
around. [A]In about 5 minutes in walked a man
holding the verdict in[E] his right hand,
the verdict read in the first degree. [A]I
hollered lordy lordy have a mercy on me!
[A]The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen
99 years in the[E] folsom pen. 99 years
underneath that ground! [A]I can't forget the
day I shot that bad bitch down! [A]Come on you
gotta listen unto me! [D]Lay off that Whiskey
and [E]let that Cocaine [A]be!
I hope Ya'll liked it! Have Fun! :)
