Ellis Paul – Kick Out The Lights Johnny Cash chords
This song Ellis plays live and is not yet on an album. Standard blues shuffle. There are multiple video versions on YouTube. He plays it in either C# with an open tuning, or in E (C# open tuning with capo on 3rd fret). Chords are just bar chords for I, IV, V. Apologies in advance for the lyrics at the bridge. There are just a few lines that are tough to understand from the vids. All other lyrics should be accurate. C# open tuning C# G# C# F G# C# Capo: 3rd fret to play in E LYRICSENow, Johnny Cash, the man in black, was at the Grand Ole OpryADrunk with ambition, whiskey and coffeeE BHe was dancing with demons. Nothing could stop him tonight, tonightEIt felt like a church, he said a little prayerARan to the stage taking two and three stairsE BYou can heckle old Johnny, hell he wouldn't care 'cause tonight,He's gonna kick out the lights. CHORUS:EKick out the lights, Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash, Johnny CashAKick out the lights, Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash, Johnny CashEKick out the lights, Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash, Johnny CashBKick out the lightsENow you can play a big theater to chandeliers and pearlsARage inside a stadium to rows of pretty girlsE BTake your fancy jet, tour around the world, if you like, it's alrightEOr you can play Folsom prison to the robbers, the crooksATo 300 killers giving back dirty looksE BIf there's a prison riot, you're gonna get the hook, so tonight, you better kick out the lights...CHORUS BRIDGEDbm A E BPlay, play on John. Johnny until the light goes onDbm A E BPlay, play on John. Johnny until the light goes onESo go on sing your little love songs about lying and leavingAYour mama's good cooking, how you can't break evenE BYour pick-up truck, how your girlfriend's cheating, it's alright, if you likeEOr you can sing a ring of fire, and how God cut you downAAbout cocaine, freight trains, Sunday morning coming downE BHow you shot a man in Reno just to paint the town, you're damn right.
