Johnny Cash – Cocaine Blues chords ver. 2

Capo 3rd fret

To start each verse play the standard walk down into A

AEarly one mornin' while makin' the round I took a shot of cocaine and I
Eshot my woman down I went right home and I went to bed
AI stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head
AGot up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun, Took a shot of cocaine and
Eaway I run, made a good run but I ran too slow
AThey overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico
ALate in the hot joints takin' the pills, In walked the sheriff from
EJericho Hill He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown
AYou're the dirty heck that shot your woman down
ASaid yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee, If you've got the warrant just
Ea-read it to me, shot her down because she made me sore
AI thought I was her daddy but she had five more
AWhen I was arrested I was dressed in black, they put me on a train and they
Etook me back, had no friend for to go my bail
AThey slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail
AEarly next mornin' bout a half past nine, I spied the sheriff coming
Edown the line, Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat He said
Acome on you dirty heck into that district court
AInto the courtroom my trial began Where I was handled by
Etwelve honest men, Just before the jury started out
AI saw the little judge commence to look about
AIn about five minutes in walked the man, Holding the verdict in
Ehis right hand, The verdict read murder in the first degree
AI hollered Lawdy Lawdy, have a mercy on me
AThe judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 99 years in the
EFolsom pen, 99 years underneath that ground
AI can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
ACome on you've gotta listen
B7 E Aunto me, Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be.
