Transpose:
Intro: E   E7 E Repeat 3 times

EWell I caught my wife with another man
D A EAnd it cost me ninety-nine
EOn a prison farm in Georgia
BClose to the Florida line
EWell I’ve been here for two long years
D A EI finally made the warden my friend
EAnd so he sentenced me to a life of ease
B ETaking care of Ol’ Red
ENow Ol’ Red he’s the damndest dog
D A EThat I’ve ever seen
EGot a nose that can smell a two day trail
BHe’s a four legged tracking machine
EYou can consider yourself mighty lucky to get past
D A EThe gators and the quicksand beds
B EBut all these years that I been here
EAin’t nobody got past Red
Chorus:
EAnd the warden sang,
E7 E E7 ECome on somebody why don’t you run
E7 E B EOl’ Red’s itchin to have a little fun
E7 E E7 EGet my lantern, get my gun
E7 E B ERed’ll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

EWell I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter
D A ETo my cousin up in Tennessee
EOh and he brought down a blue tick hound
BShe was pretty as she could be
EWell the penned her up in the swampland
D A EAbout a mile just south of the gate
EAnd I’d take Ol’ Red for his evening run
B EI’d just drop him off and wait
EAnd the warden sang,

EWell I made my run with the evening sun
D A EAnd I smiled when I heard ‘em turn Red out
ECause I was headed north to Tennessee
And Ol’ Red was headed south
