The Chicken in Black  Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash - The Chicken In Black
[A] [D] [E] [A] [E]  
For [A]two long years my head hurt bad
So the [D]doctor checked me and he shook his head
He said Iím [E]sorry to tell you put your bodyís out lived your [A]brain[E]
He said I [A]know this doctor in New York son
And heíll [D]fix you right up with a brand new one
So the [E]head doctor met me when I stepped down off the [A]train.[E]
He said we [A]had this bank robber killed last night
His [D]bodyís shot but his brainís alright
Iíll [E]give you a transplant boy and youíll be [A]okay.[E]
I got my [A]new brain in and I was feeliní great
I went [D]right back to Nashville with no head ache
But somethiní [E]strange happened when I walked in the bank one [A]day.
Chorus:
I said stick Ďem [D]up everybody Iím robbiní this place
Drop [A]all of your money in my guitar case
Donít [D]nobody move and donít nobody reach for that [E]door
A [A]lady said why youíre Johnny Cash
I said [D]no maíam, Iím The Manhatton Flash
And I [E]am the best bank robber, in New [A]York.
Now the [A]other night Roy Acuff called me
He said [D]John Iíd like you to do the Orpy
So I [E]went out on the stage, but I couldnít [A]sing[E]
I got into [A]half a verse of I Walk The Line
And [D]somethiní snapped in this head of mine
I yelled [E]stick Ďem up, give me your money your watches and your [A]rings.
[Bb]Well I called New York and talked to that brain quack
I said [Db]doc I got to have my old brain back
He said Iím [F]sorry there Mr. Cash but I canít do [Bb]that.[F]
He said I [Bb]put your brain in a chicken last Monday
Heís [Db]singiní your songs and makiní lots of money
And I [F]got him signed to a ten year recordiní con[Bb]tract.[F]
Now [Bb]friends if you see me walkiní down the street
Remember [Db]what you see ainít necessarly me
And if [F]I try to hold you up, donít pay me no [Bb]mind.
But when you [Bb]got ten bucks that you can blow
You [Db]oughta catch that Johnny Chicken Show
Heís [F]doiní fairs and concert dates all up and down the [Bb]line.
Chorus2:
I said stick Ďem [Db]up everybody Iím robbiní this place
Drop [Bb]all of your money in my guitar case
Donít [Db]nobody move and donít nobody reach for that [F]door
A [Bb]lady said why youíre Johnny Cash
I said [Db]no maíam, Iím The Manhattan Flash
And I [F]am the best bank robber, in New [Bb]York.[F]
Well it donít pay any income tax
You donít pay tax on money you steal
You oughta catch that Johnny Chicken Show
Chicken In Black.
