Cocaine Blues  Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues
[C#]Early one mornin' while makin' the round I took a shot of cocaine and I
[G#]shot my woman down I went right home and I went to bed
[C#]I stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head
[C#]Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun, Took a shot of cocaine and
[G#]away I run, made a good run but I ran too slow
[C#]They overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico
[C#]Late in the hot joints takin' the pills, In walked the sheriff from
[G#]Jericho Hill He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown
[C#]You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down
[C#]Said yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee, If you've got the warrant just
[G#]a-read it to me, shot her down because she made me sore
[C#]I thought I was her daddy but she had five more
[C#]When I was arrested I was dressed in black, they put me on a train and they
[G#]took me back, had no friend for to go my bail
[C#]They slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail
[C#]Early next mornin' bout a half past nine, I spied the sheriff coming
[G#]down the line, Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat He said
[C#]come on you dirty heck into that district court
[C#]Into the courtroom my trial began Where I was handled by
[G#]twelve honest men, Just before the jury started out
[C#]I saw the little judge commence to look about
[C#]In about five minutes in walked the man, Holding the verdict in
[G#]his right hand, The verdict read murder in the first degree
[C#]I hollered Lawdy Lawdy, have a mercy on me
[C#]The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 99 years in the
[G#]Folsom pen, 99 years underneath that ground
[C#]I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
[C#]Come on you've gotta listen
[F#]unto me, [G#]Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine [C#]be
end on C#
