Transpose
Am G Am I was sittin' beside the road in Black Jack County.
G Enot knowing that that the Sheriff paid a bounty,
Am G F Amfor men like me that didn't have a penny to their name.
G Am E AmSo he locked my leg to 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chains.
G Am And all we had to eat was bread and water,
G Eand each day we built the road a mile and a quarter,
Am G F Ama Black Snake Whip, would cut our back, when some poor Fool complained,
G Am E Ambut we couldn't fight back wearing 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chains.
G AmOne night while the Sheriff was a sleeping,
G Ewe all gathered round him slowly creeping,
Am G F Amand Heaven help me to forget that night in the cold cold rain,
G Am E Amwhen we beat him to death with 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chains.
now the whip marks are all healed and I'm thankful, there's nothing but the scar around my ankle. but most of all I'm glad no man will be a slave again, to a Black Snake Whip, and 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chain.
