White Girl  Johnny Cash

Recorded by: Johnny Cash
Key of A
INTRO:
 
 D--------------------------------
 A-4-3-2-2-2-2-4-5-2------4-2---0-
 E-------------------2-0------2---

[A]I am stunned and I am broken and my [E]hat is in my hand
[E]For she who said she loved me will not w[D]ed an Indian[A] man
[A]My gods who were wild-ridden stand [E]quiet by my side
[E]For although I love her she [D]would not be my [A]bride
CHORUS:
[A]Oh good-bye softly sweet one it was [E]splendid while it ran
[E]Good-bye my bitter white girl I'll [D]forget you if [A]I can
She came up to the pueblo with her bright blond hair
They told me not to love her but I did not care
She took me to her parties she carried me around
And I was a proud one the tallest man in town
For I found great wonder all wrapped in brilliant dreams
I held her strong with gentle as kings have held their queens
I learned to drink strong whiskey as she took me here and there
Until life without my whiskey I could not bare
REPEAT CHORUS
SOLO:
 
 D--------------------------------
 A-4-3-2-2-2-2-4-5-2------4-2---0-
 E-------------------2-0------2---

KEY CHANGE: Key of G
[G]Well when she came to leave me she [D]took me by the arm
[D]And she said she loved me and [C]would not do me [G]harm
[G]But she would not marry not an [D]Indian she said
[D]She thanked me for my offer and I [C]wish that I was [G]dead
Now I'm back among my people and they are kind to me
Although I'm sad with staggers when I drink the tough whiskey
For I've been a white girl's pet a captive in the end
Shown off and discarded just a drunk who might have been
REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
