The Ghost of Johnny Cash by Shawn Mullins

Acoustic version from KINK.FM video
Key: A
Standard Tuning (I think the studio version is in F# and uses an alternatetuning. I liked this version since Shawn transposed it into standard
tuning, which makes it easier to play live and it loses none of the character of the studio version)
Am GI woke up in a cold sweat, from a dream at 3am,
D/F# FI was driftin' on a sea of shadows; the rain was whippin' in the wind
Am C G D/F#I saw a man dressed all in black, reach out and take the helm,
F E AmAnd he charted us a course, out into the spirit realm.
Am GI can taste the salt; feel the blisters on my hand
D/F# FAs I'm pulling at the ores, rowing on to glory land,
Am C G D/F#And sitting in the stern, singin' hymns and talkin' trash
Am G D/F# F E AmIs my broken guardian angel, the ghost of Johnny Cash.
Am GWell, Johnny's quoting from the bible, while I'm trying to steer this leaky craft,
D/F# FAnd his familiar voice reminds me that I'm man who's cut in half,
Am C G D/F#His tarnished halo slips and shines, as the raging billows crash,
Am G D/F# F E AmAnd I'm riding out the deluge with the ghost of Johnny Cash
Chorus:
G Some sinners need their saints to be survivors of the fall,
Am G D/F# E Cuz' when you're down here on your knees, most angels look to tall,
Am G D/F# FSo I'll just live this life out dust to dust and ash to ash,
Am G D/F# F E AmWith my guide from the other side the ghost of Johnny Cash,
Interlude: Am, G, D/F#, F, Am
Am GYou gotta' stand for something, cuz' when you're gone your gone
D/F# F The devil lost a lot of souls when Johnny put that black suit on,
Am C G D/F# He's still flipping off the Pharacies and laughing at old scratch
Am G D/F# F E AmWhile he haunts the halls of heaven, the ghost of Johnny Cash
Chorus:
G Some sinners need their saints to be survivors of the fall,
Am G D/F# E Cuz' when you're down here on your knees, most angels look to tall,
Am G D/F# FSo I'll just live this life out dust to dust and ash to ash,
Am G D/F# F E AmWith my guide from the other side the ghost of Johnny Cash,
Am G D/F# FYeah, I'll just live this life out dust to dust and ash to ash
Am G D/F# F E AmUntil I'm raisin' hell in heaven with the ghost of Johnny Cash
