Album: The Dirty South


Intro:
G  F#/G   Em  D
G  F#/G   Em  D
 
G                        F#/G                Em
Life ain't nothin' but a blendin' up all the ups and downs
                          C
Damn it, Elvis, don't you know?
                      D
You made your mama so proud.
G                         F#/G                            Em
Before you ever made that record, before there ever was a Sun
                          C                          D
Before you ever lost that Cadillac, the Carl Perkins one.

G  F#/G  Em  D  (2x)

G            F#/G                              Em                
Mr. Phillips found ol' Johnny Cash when he was high
                    C
high before he ever took those pills
                            D
and he's still too proud to die.

G                  F#/G                    Em
Mr. Phillips never said anything behind nobody's back

                             C
like damn it Elvis, don't he know?
                   D
He ain't no Johnny Cash


    C                     B/C            A                    G     F#/
Mr. Phillips was the only man that Jerry Lee still would call sir
                Em                               D
I just wish Mr. Phillips did all of y'all, bout as good as you deserved

   C                          B/C 
He did just what he said he's gonna do
        A             G        F#/G
and the money came in sacks.
       Em         D
New contracts and Carl Perkins' Cadillac


I got friends in Nashville, or at least the folks I know
Nashville's where you go to see if what he said is so.
Carl drove his brand new Cadillac from Nashville anywhere downtown.
This town they promised him a Grammy, he turned his Cadillac around.

'Cause Mr. Phillips never blew enough hot air to need a little gold plated paperweight
he promised him a Cadillac, they put the wind in Carl's face. 
He did just what he said he's gonna do and the money came in sacks.

Damn it Elvis, I swear son, I think it's time you came around.
Makin' money you can't spend ain't what bein' dead's about 
You gave me all but one good reason not to do all of the things you did.
Like Cadillac (?) glass, if you were me, you'd call it quits.

Mr. Phillips was the only man that Jerry Lee still would call sir
I just wish Mr. Phillips did all of y'all, 'bout as as good as you deserved

He did just what he said he's gonna do
and the money came in sacks.
