Transfusion Blues  Johnny Cash

KEY: Bb / CAPO: 1 / PLAY: A
[A]Early one morning while making the rounds
[A]Took a transfusion and I [E]shot my woman down
[E]Went right home and I went to bed
Well I stuck that loving forty-four beneath my head
Got up next morning and I grabbed that gun
Took a transfusion and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow
They overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico
Laid in the hot joints taking the pill
In walked a sheriff from Jericho Hill
He said Willie Lee your name is not Jack Brown
You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down
Said yes oh yes my name is Willie Lee
If you got a warrent just read it to me
Shot her down because she made me slow
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more
When I was arrested I was dressed in black
Put me on a train and they took me back
Had no friends for to go my bail
They slapped my dried-up carcass in that county jail
Into the courtroom my trial began
Where I was handled by twelve honest men
Just before the jury started out
Well I saw that little judge commence to look about
In about five minutes in walked a man
Holding the verdict in his right hand
Verdict read in the first degree
Well I hollered Lordy, Lordy have mercy on me
Judge me smiled as he picked up his pen
Ninety-nine years in the San Quentin pen
Ninety-nine years underneath that ground
I can't forget the day I shot my woman down
[A]Come all you gotta listen [D]unto me
[B7]Lay off that liquor and [E]let that transfusion [A]be
