Smackwater Jack  Carol King


INTRO:
[C] [C] [F] [C] [2x] 

VERSE 1:
N[C]ow, Smackwater Jack,
He bought a shotgun[F] [C]
'Cause he was in the mood
For a little confrontation.[F] [C]
He just a-let it all hang loose;
He didn't [F]think about the noose.
He couldn't t[G]ake no more ab[F]use
So he shot down the congreg[C]ation.[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

You can't t[Am]alk to a m[G]an
With a s[Am]hotgun i[G]n his h[F]and.
A shotgun in his h[C]and.[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

N[C]ow, Big Jim the chief
Stood for law and order.[F] [C]
He called for the guard to come
And surround the border.[F] [C]
Now, from his bulldog mouth,
As he led the p[F]osse south,
Came the c[G]ry, "We got to r[F]ide
To clean up the streets
For our wives and our d[C]aughters!"[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

You can't t[Am]alk to a m[G]an
With a s[Am]hotgun i[G]n his h[F]and.
A shotgun in his h[C]and.[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

The account of the capture
Wasn't in the papers,[F] [C]
But you know, they hanged ol' Smack right then
Instead of later.[F] [C]
You know, the people were quite pleased
'Cause the o[F]utlaw had been seized
And on the wh[G]ole, it was a very good [F]year
For the undert[C]aker.[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

You can't t[Am]alk to a m[G]an
With a s[Am]hotgun i[G]n his h[F]and.
A shotgun in his h[C]and.[F] [C] [C] [F] [C]

S[C]mackwater Jack bought a shotgun.[F] [C]
Yeah, Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun.[F] [C]
Oh, Smackwater Jack, yeah.[F] [C]
Talkin' 'bout Smackwater Jack, y[F] [C]eah.
Talkin' 'bout a-Smackwater Jack, n[F] [C]ow.
Talkin' 'bout Smack.[F] [C]
