Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues chords

Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues

C#Early one mornin' while makin' the round I took a shot of cocaine and I
G#shot my woman down I went right home and I went to bed
C#I stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head
C#Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun, Took a shot of cocaine and
G#away I run, made a good run but I ran too slow
C#They overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico
C#Late in the hot joints takin' the pills, In walked the sheriff from
G#Jericho Hill He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown
C#You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down
C#Said yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee, If you've got the warrant just
G#a-read it to me, shot her down because she made me sore
C#I thought I was her daddy but she had five more
C#When I was arrested I was dressed in black, they put me on a train and they
G#took me back, had no friend for to go my bail
C#They slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail
C#Early next mornin' bout a half past nine, I spied the sheriff coming
G#down the line, Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat He said
C#come on you dirty heck into that district court
C#Into the courtroom my trial began Where I was handled by
G#twelve honest men, Just before the jury started out
C#I saw the little judge commence to look about
C#In about five minutes in walked the man, Holding the verdict in
G#his right hand, The verdict read murder in the first degree
C#I hollered Lawdy Lawdy, have a mercy on me
C#The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 99 years in the
G#Folsom pen, 99 years underneath that ground
C#I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
C#Come on you've gotta listen
F# G# C#unto me, Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be
end on C# great song by JOhnny "the man" Cash seeya playas
