Johnny Cash - Leave That Junk Alone (Alabama 3 Remix)
------------------------------
Key of F, ear-transcribed on ukulele by Neil Killer.
------------------------------
This was tabbed from Alabama 3's remix of "Leave That Junk Alone", which 
includes elements of Johnny's original recording and Alabama 3's added verses. 
From the highly controversial 2009 album, Johnny Cash Remixed.
------------------------------
Alabama 3's lyrics were difficult to transcribe, but I got them all, save for 
one word!
------------------------------

CHORUS:
FLeave that junk alone
FLeave that junk alone
A#Leave that junk alone
C FAnd drink cool H2O
VERSE 1:
FWell, me and a couple of good ol' boys
FTook a taxi ride downtown
A#Were checking out a honkytonks
C FWaiting for the man to come around
FLined up ten tequilas
FLined up a twenty chase of beer
A#Put the (glata???) on the barmaid
C FSaid, "Don't you ever come back in here!"
CHORUS: Johnny said,
F FDrink water, Lord, that liquor is hot, drink water
Please Johnny, just a one more shot
A# CDrink water, Lord, that liquor is hot, drink water
FSomebody took the bottle top off
VERSE 2:
FWe would shoot a bitch our stares
FAcutely aware of the state we was in
A#Met a nun called Mary in a strip joint
C FSaid she'd guide us through the city of sin
FBought a thousand Marlboro Reds
FWe got a quart of Bombay gin
A# C FLooking for salvation in some out-of-town Comfort Inn
FThen Johnny busted down the door
FKing James Bible in his hand
A#Eyes burning with a rapture
C FHe'd seen the angels in the Promised Land
FWell, I could hear that train a-comin', Lord
FMy mind was going 'round the bend
A#The good ol' boys put the bottle top on the floor
C FThey'd never touch a drop again
BRIDGE: Johnny said,
FYour eyes are baggy and a bloodshot red
FIt's been a week or two since you've been in bed
A#You better pay attention now to what I said
C FYou better leave that junk alone and drink water
FYou come home feeling for the knob on the door
FYou better pick up your feet, you're gonna fall on the floor
A#I keep on telling you, I'll tell you some more
C FYou better leave that junk alone and drink water
FNow I'll forgive you for your running around
FIf you just promise that you'll come unwound
A#I'll buy you anything you want in town
C FIf you'll leave that junk alone
CHORUS:
FLeave that junk alone (and drink water)
FLeave that junk alone
A#Leave that junk alone (and drink water)
C FAnd drink cool H2O
FLeave that junk alone (and drink water)
FLeave that junk alone
A#Leave that junk alone (and drink water)
C C FAnd drink cool H... 2O
