Don't Cuss the Fiddle  Waylon Jennings


****************** DON'T CUSS THE FIDDLE *******************
written by Kris Kristofferson
performed by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.
Capo on the 2nd fret.
Verse 1 (W. Nelson):
I [B]scandalized my brother while admitting that he sang some pretty s[E]ongs
I he[F#]ard that he'd been scandilizing me and Lord i knew that that was w[B]rong
Now i'm looking at over something cool and feeling fool enough to s[E]ee
What i h[F#]ad called my brother,now he had every right to call on m[B]e
Chorus (W. Jennings,W. Nelson):
D[B]on't ever cuss that fiddle,boy unless you want that fiddle out of t[E]une
That p[F#]icker there in trouble,boy ain't nothing but another side of y[B]ou
If we ever get to Heaven,boy it ain't because we ain't done nothing wr[E]ong
We're in [F#]this thing together so let settle down and steal each other's song[B]s
Verse 2 (W. Jennings):
I f[B]ound a wounded brother drinking bitterly away the aftern[E]oon
And s[F#]oon enough he turned on me like he'd done every face in that sal[B]oon
Well we cussed him to the ground and said he couldn't even steal a decent [E]song
But as s[F#]oon as it was spoken we were sad enough to wish that we were wr[B]ong
I kn[F#]ow that it sounds silly but i think that i just somebody's [B]song
Verse 3 (W. Jennings,W. Nelson):
Sh[B]e's a good hearted woman in love with a good timin' m[E]an
She l[F#]oves him in spite of my ways that she don't underst[B]and
Through teardrops and laughter we'll pass through this world hand in h[E]and
A g[F#]ood hearted woman in love with a good timin' m[B]an
