CAPO: 2nd Fret

G C GBad News, bad news, has come to where I sleep
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)Saying one of my friends is in trouble deep
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GTell me the trouble, tell me once to my ears
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)Joliet Prison for ninety-nine years
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GA crash on the highway threw a car into a field
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)There were four people killed and he was at the wheel
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GBut I know him as well as I know my own self
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)And he wouldn't harm a life that belonged to someone else
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C G"That may be so," said the judge from the side of his mouth
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)But the witness who saw it, he left little doubt
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn, to the wind and the rain
G C GHe may, he may have a sentence for to serve
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)But ninety-nine years he just does not deserve
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GToo late, too late, for his case it is sealed
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)His sentence it is passed and it cannot be repealed
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GBut he ain't no criminal, and his crime it is none
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)And what happened to him could have happened to anyone
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GAt that the judge jerked forward and his face it did freeze
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)Saying "Would you kindly leave my office now please"
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GI squinted my eyes and I stood up so slow,
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)With no other choice except for me to go
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GWell, I walked down the hall and I heard his door slam
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)I walked down the stairs, but I could not understand
Am C D Dsus DTurn, turn to the wind and the rain
G C GI played my guitar through the night and through the day
Am D Dsus DTurn, turn, turn again
G C (walk down bass to Am)But the only tune that my guitar would play
Am C D Dsus DWas oh, how cruel the wind and the rain
