Dmin Fmaj My Daddy played poker in the woods they say, back in his younger days Gmaj Dmin Prohibition was the talk, but the rich folks walked to the woods where my Daddy stayed ----- ----- ----- ----- -5/7~ 7---- Dmin Fmaj Jugs and jars from shiners, these old boys here, they ain't miners Gmaj They came from the twenty-niners Dmin It didn't take a hole in the ground to put the bottom in their face

You can hit the high E string (or D in this song's case) whenever you'd like during that to add a fuller and less repetetive sound. Verse: Dmin Back in the thirties when the dust bowl dried Fmaj And the woods in Alabama didn't see no light Gmaj My Daddy played poker by a hard wood fire Dmin Squeezing all his luck from a hot copper wire
----------|----------|----------|-2-2-2/3--|2-2-2---2-|----------|
Dmin Scrap like a wildcat fights till the end Fmaj Trap a wildcat and take his skin Gmaj Deal from the bottom, put the ace in the hole Dmin One hand on the jug but you never do know

Chorus: Cmaj Son come running Gmaj You better come quick Gmaj Amaj Bbmaj Fmaj This rotgut moonshine is making me sick Cmaj Gmaj Your Mama called the law and they're gonna take me away Gmaj Amaj Bbmaj Fmaj Down so far even the Devil won't stay Verse: Where I call to the Lord with all my soul I can hear him rattling the chains on the door He couldn't get in I could see he tried Through the shadows of the cage around the forty watt light

Chorus: Daddy tell me another story Tell me about the lows and the highs Tell me how to tell the difference between what they tell me is the truth or a lie Tell me why the ones who have so much make the ones who don't go mad With the same skin stretched over their white bones and the same jug in their hand Verse: My Daddy played poker on a stump in the woods back when the world was gray Before black and white went and chose up sides and gave a little bit of both their way
