Capo 3 – Drop D Tuning

You can hear a walk down on the last line as well and it is like this
While staying in the G chord shape:

A G D I came to tell my story to all these young and eager minds G A To look in their unspoiled faces and their curious bright eyes A G D Stories of corruption, crime and killing, yes it's true G A Greed and fixed elections, guns and drugs and whores and booze It's been a while since I put on a suit of my own clothes And even longer since I cast my shadow on a church house door They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all Bridge: D I used to have a wad of hundred dollar bills in the back pocket of my suit G A I had a .45 underneath my coat and another one in my boot D I drove a big ole Cadillac, bought a new one anytime I pleased G A And I put more lawmen in the ground than Alabama put cottonseed I spent a few years on vacation, sanctioned by the state I mentioned But a man like me don't do no time too hard to come back from The meanest of the mean, I see you lock away and toss the key But they're all just loud mouth punks to me, I've scraped meaner off my shoe Bridge 2: Somewhere, I ain't saying, there's a hole that holds a judge The last one that I dug myself and I must admit I was Sad to lay him in it, but I did the best I could Once his Honor grows a conscience, well folks, that there just ain't no good Bridge 3: G A There's a pretty girl out there said "Daddy, you stay cool tonight G A All I need from you is to come home and be here by my side G A Say what you gotta say to shut their Bibles and their mouths G G/G# A If they was to tie a noose, they'd have to lay their Bibles down" I ain't here to save no souls and even if I could I could never save enough to put back half the ones I took So if they rest in torment you can't say it's cause of me They'd long been bought and paid for like that fool's in Tennessee Bridge 3
