<i></i>Old Crow Medicine Show
Bootlegger's Boy
Standard Tuning
F# Chord:
Intro: A,E,A,E,A,E,A,E,D,A,E,A,E,A
**The A-E transition is very quick so hardly one strum is required on the E chords.
[A]I was [E]born and r[A]aised, A [E]bootlegger's [A]boy,
In the [E]Cherokee [A]Hills, I [E]applied my [A]trade,
In [E]Mountain [D]City, I had me a [A]time, just [E]makin' [A]money, on [E]Moonshin[A]e.
Interlude: A,E,A,E,A...
So I [E]hauled my [A]load, into [E]Knoxville [A]town,
I [E]met me a [A]gal, and we [E]knocked [A]around,
But them [E]Knoxville [D]girls, can't leave me [A]alone,
In my [E]suits so [A]fine, and my [E]bottle of [A]corn.
I'm going [D]back to Mountain [A]City, Where I can [F#]make another [A]run,
Load my [F#]trunk, with Moonshine [A]whisky, I am a [D]brave, Bootlegger's [A]Son.
Interlude: A,E,A,E,A...
So I so[E]ld that co[A]rn, to the Ci[E]rcuit Ju[A]dge,
On the [E]public [A]square, to [E]Mayor [A]Trent,
But I [E]met with [D]trouble, on the tracks one [A]night,
With a [E]drunken [A]man, I [E]commenced to [A]fight.
Interlude: A,E,A,E,A...
Yeah I [E]fought five [A]rounds, then I [E]put him [A]away,
With a [E]wicked [A]jab, from a [E]razor [A]blade,
And the [E]women [D]screamed, as the bottles [A]broke,
On [E]stony [A]ground, where the [E]blood did [A]flow.
I'm going [D]back to Mountain [A]City, gonna [F#]make those revenues [A]run
I killed a [F#]man, in a feud of [A]whiskey, I am a [F#]cruel, Bootlegger's [A]son.
Solo: play the chords to the chorus 2x
Interlude: A,E,A,E,A...
Now I [E]roam the [A]night, just to [E]hide my [A]shame,
I lost [E]all my [A]money, can't [E]find a [A]friend,
Gonna [E]drag my [D]bones, to the mountainsid[A]e,
If [E]corn don't [A]kill me,[D] I might never [A]die.
I'm going [D]back to Mountain [A]City, or else they'll [F#]hang me this I [A]know,
I killed a [F#]man, in a feud of [A]whiskey, I am a [F#]cruel, Bootlegger's [A]boy.
I'm going [D]back to Mountain [A]City, to the Cherokee [F#]hills I started [A]from,
Going home [F#]broke ain't it a [A]pity, I am a [F#]cruel, Bootlegger's [A]son.
Outro: play the chords to chorus
