Johnny Cash – Man In Black chords ver. 2

BbWell, you wonder why I always dress in black.
C Why you never see bright colors on my back, and
Eb Bb Eb BbWhy does my ap - pearance, seem to have a sombre tone,
Cm F7Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
Bb I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
C Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town.
Eb Bb Eb BbI wear it for the prisoner, who has long paid for his crime.
Cm F7 But is there because he's a victim of the crime.
BbI wear the black for those, who've never read,
COr listened to the words, that Jesus said,
Eb Bb Eb BbAbout the road to happi - ness, through love and chari - ty,
Cm F7Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.
Bb Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do sup - pose,
C In our streak-of-lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
Eb Bb Eb BbBut just so we're re -minded, of, the ones who are held back,
Cm F7Up front there oughta be a man in black.
Bb I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
C For the reckless ones, whose bad trip left them cold,
Eb Bb Eb BbI wear the black in mournin', for the lives that could have been,
Cm F7Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
Bb And I wear it for the thousands who have died,
C believen' that the Lord was on their side,
Eb Bb Eb BbI wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Cm F7Believen' that we all were on their side.
Bb Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
C and things need changing everywhere you go,
Eb Bb Eb Bbbut 'til we start to make a move, to make a few things right,
Cm F7you'll never see me wear a suit of white.
Bb Oh I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
C and tell the world that everything's OK,
Eb Bb Eb Bbbut I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
Cm F7'till things are brighter, I'm the man in black.
