Dupree's Diamond Blues  Grateful Dead

When I was just [E7]a little young boy,[Am]
[D]Papa said son, you'll [G]never get far,
[E7]Tell you the reason, if you [Am]wanna know,
Cause [D]child of mine,
There [Am7]isn't really[Am] ver[D]y f[E]ar [F#]to g[G]o.
[E7]Well, baby baby wants a [Am]gold diamond ring,
[D]Wants it more than most [G]any old thing,
[E7]Well when I get those [Am]jelly-roll blues,
[D]Why I go and [Am7]get anything i[Am]n thi[D]s wo[E]rld [F#]for y[G]ou.
[E7]Down to the jewelry store p[Am]ackin' a gun,
[D]Says, "Wrap it up I think I'll [G]take this one."
[E7]"A thousand dollars please," the [Am]jewelry man said,
[D]Dupree he said, "[Am7]I'll pay this one off [Am]to y[D]ou [E]in [F#]lead[G]."
[G]Well you know son, you just ca[D]n't fi[C]gur[G]e,
[Am]First thing you know you're gonna to [G]pull t[D]hat tr[C]igger[G],
[G]And it's no wonder, your reaso[F#]n goe[F]s ba[E]d,
[Am]Jelly-roll will [D]drive you so [G]mad.[C] [G]
[E7]Judge said, "Son, it's gonna cost [Am]you some time."
[D]Dupree said, "Judge you know that [G]crossed my mind."
[E7]Judge said, "Fact it's gonna cost you [Am]your life."
[D]Dupree said, "J[Am7]udge you know that seems to me [Am]to be[D] abo[E]ut r[F#]ight.[G]"
[E7]Baby baby you gonna lose her [Am]sweet man,
[D]Dupree come out with a [G]losin' hand,
[E7]Baby's gonna weep it up for a[Am] while,
[D]Then go out and find another [Am7]sweet man's gonna [Am]treat[D] her[E] wit[F#]h sty[G]le.
[E7]Judge said, "Son, I know your [Am]baby well,
[D]But that's a secret I can [G]never tell."
[E7]Dupree said, "Judge well it's well[Am] understood,
[D]But you got to ad[Am7]mit that sweet swee[Am]t Jel[D]ly's[E] so [F#]good.[G]"
[G]Well you know son, you just ca[D]n't fi[C]gur[G]e,
[Am]First thing you know you're gonna to [G]pull t[D]hat tr[C]igger[G],
[G]And it's no wonder, your reaso[F#]n goe[F]s ba[E]d,
[Am]Jelly-roll will [D]drive you so [G]mad.[C] [G]
[E7]Same old story and I know it's [Am]been told,
[D]Some like Jelly Jelly, [G]some like gold,
[E7]Many a man's done a t[Am]errible thing
[D]Just to get, ba[Am7]by a shinin' d[Am]iamon[D]d ri[E]ng.[F#] [G]
