     G               D      Em
They took my life on August 31
    G                D               Em 
For all the bad they said that I had done
G          D                
One man he pulled the switch
         Am                      
While my family watched my fingers twitch
          G                 D                Am
When they covered my face I knew my time had come
          G                 D                Em
When they covered my face I knew my time had come

D                     Em
My name is Johnny Ray Dupree
D                               Em
One big brother two sisters and me
Am                      C                            G
We were brought up just living to be free
                       D                          Am
Now she took that from me
        C                         G
Now she took that from me
           D          Em
My name is Johnny Ray Dupree

They shaved my leg about an hour ago
I imagine they did so to help with all the flow
My last supper wouldn't much 
Some banana pudding and a sack of nuts
The preacher came in and we prayed a prayer real low
That preacher and me we prayed a prayer real low

Chorus

C                            D
My lawyer said that I’d been drinking on that night
         Am                               C
Couldn’t possibly have known that gun was loaded but he lied
G                                      D
It’s true that there was whiskey but I loaded it myself
        Am                      C
Cause I knew he was coming over soon as I had left
      D                            Am
And I put it in the dresser drawer right beside the door
           C                              Em
So I could have it in my hands before his feet had hit the floor
     G                            D
They never heard me come in and I grabbed it like I planned
        Am                             C
A lucky break that it was easier while they were still in bed
        G                              D                           Am        
A lucky break that it was easier while they were still in bed…

Am      C       G       D
Am      C       G       Em…
