Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
CWell, there's lots of strange men in cell-block ten,
Gbut the strangest of them all
F Cwas a pal of mine who would spend his time
Am C F Cjust staring at the wall, staring at the wall.
[Verse 2]
CIn his hand was a note that his gal had wrote,
Gwhich proves that crime don't pay
F Cthe very same gal that h'd robbed and stole for,
Am C F Cnaming her wedding day, naming her wedding day.
[Chorus]
F CAs he looked at the wall so strong and tall,
F C FI heard him softly curse, "nobody at all
C Am Chas ever made that wall, but I'm gonna be the first,
F CI'm gonna be the first."
[Verse 3]
CWell the Warden walked by, said "Son don't try,
Gcause I'd hate to see you fall
F Ccause there ain't no doubt we're gonna carry you out
Am C F Cif you ever touch that wall, if you ever touch that wall."
[Verse 4]
CBut a year has gone by since he made his try;
GI can still recall
F Chow hard he tried and the way he died,
Am C F Cbut he never topped the wall, he never topped the wall.
[Chorus]
F CMany a man who has shook this can,
F Cand I know a man who tried.
F CThe newspapers called it a jailbreak plan,
Am C F Cbut I know it was suicide; I know that it was suicide.
(Song goes to "Cotton Mouth River") [Verse 1]
C AmWell I know that I shouldn't have done it
F G CI know it just wasn't right
G AmCause they got me backed up to the Cottonmouth river
F G Cand I can't cross late at night.
[Chorus]
G CYeah, there's lots of stories told about the Cottonmouth river,
F G they tell them time and again,
C G Am about the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight
F G C never were heard from again.
[Verse 2]
C AmWell if I had my life to live over,
F G CI'd've gone to work that day
G Aminstead of going into town and shooting him down
F G Cfor a thing I never heard him say.
[Chorus]
G CYeah, there's lots of stories told about the Cottonmouth river,
F Gthey tell them time and again,
C G Amabout the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight
F G Cnever were heard from again.
[Verse 3]
C AmWell, I'd just made it through the canebreak
F G Cand got one foot in the mud.
G AmI can hear the hounds a-bayin' but the snake around my ankle's
F G Ctelling me my running days are done.
[Chorus]
G CYeah, there's lots of stories told about the Cottonmouth river,
F Gthey tell them time and again,
C G Amabout the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight
F G Cnever were heard from again.
