Chords: C Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds C G I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down G 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 C G Took a shot of cocaine and away I run G 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 C G In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill G 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 C If you've got the warrant just a-read it to me G 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 C G They put me on a train and they took me back G 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 C G I spied the sheriff coming down the line G Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat C He said come on you dirty heck into that district court C Into the courtroom my trial began C G Where I was handled by twelve honest men G 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 C G Holding the verdict in his right hand G The verdict read murder in the first degree C I hollered Lordy Lordy, have a mercy on me C The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen C G 99 years in the Folsom pen G 99 years underneath that ground C I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
