Tennessee Flat Top Box  Johnny Cash

Capo 1st fret
Intro:
| A | A | A | D |
| A | A | A |
In a lit[A]tle cabaret, in a south Texas border town,[E]
Sat a boy and his guitar, and the people came from all around.[A]
And all the girls from there to Austin were slip[E]pin' 'way from home
And puttin' jew'lry in hock to take[A] the trip to go and listen[E]
To the little dark haired boy that played the Tennessee flat top box.[A]
And he would play...[D]
Guitar Solo:
| D | D | D | A |

Well, he couldn[A]'t ride or wrangle, and he never cared to make a dime.[E]
But give him his guitar and he'd be happy all the time.[A]
And all the girls from nine to ninety[E]
Were snappin' fingers, tappin' toes and beggin' him, "Don't stop!"[A]
And hypnotized, and fasci - nated[E]
By the little dark haired boy that played the Tennessee flat top box.[A]
And he would play...[D]
Guitar Solo:
| D | D | D | A |
| A | A | A | D |

| A | A | A | D |
| A | A | A |
Then one d[A]ay he was gone and no one ever saw him 'round.[E]
He vanished like the breeze, and they forgot him in the little town.[A]
But all the girls still dreamed a-bout him[E]
And hung around the cabaret until the doors were locked.[A]
And then one day on the hit pa-rade[E]
Was a little dark haired boy that played the Tennessee flat top box.[A]
And he would play...[D]
