[Intro]
E   E7 E (Repeat 3 times)

[Verse 1]
E
Well I caught my wife with another man
       D      A      E
And it cost me ninety-nine
E
On a prison farm in Georgia
                     B
Close to the Florida line
E
Well I’ve been here for two long years
D                  A         E
I finally made the warden my friend
E
And so he sentenced me to a life of ease
B                  E
Taking care of Ol’ Red
E
Now Ol’ Red he’s the damndest dog
    D     A    E
That I’ve ever seen
E
Got a nose that can smell a two day trail
                   B
He’s a four legged tracking machine
E
You can consider yourself mighty lucky to get past
D              A             E
The gators and the quicksand beds
B                               E
But all these years that I been here
E
Ain’t nobody got past Red

[Chorus]
E
And the warden sang,
E7           E   E7             E
Come on somebody why don’t you run
E7         E         B             E
Ol’ Red’s itchin to have a little fun
E7      E        E7     E
Get my lantern, get my gun
E7                E              B       E
Red’ll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

[Verse 2]
E                        D  A
E
Well I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter
D      A        E
To my cousin up in Tennessee
E
Oh and he brought down a blue tick hound
                            B
She was pretty as she could be
E
Well the penned her up in the swampland
D                 A            E
About a mile just south of the gate
E
And I’d take Ol’ Red for his evening run
B                         E
I’d just drop him off and wait

[Chorus]
E
And the warden sang,
E7           E   E7             E
Come on somebody why don’t you run
E7         E         B             E
Ol’ Red’s itchin to have a little fun
E7      E        E7     E
Get my lantern, get my gun
E7                E              B       E
Red’ll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

[Verse]
E                        D  A
E
Now Ol’ Red got real used to seeing
D        A            E
His lady every night
E                          E7
And so I kept him away for three or four days
E
E           B
And waited til the time got right
E
Well I made my run with the evening sun
D            A                            E
And I smiled when I heard ‘em turn Red out
E
Cause I was headed north to Tennessee
And Ol’ Red was headed south

[Chorus]
E
And the warden sang,
E7           E   E7             E
Come on somebody why don’t you run
E7         E         B             E
Ol’ Red’s itchin to have a little fun
E7      E        E7     E
Get my lantern, get my gun
E7                E              B       E
Red’ll have you treed ‘fore the morning comes

[Outro]
E                        D  A
E
Now there’s red hair blue ticks all in the south
E                        B           E
Love got me in here and love got me out

Just put a capo on the first fret and you also got the correct sound of it as well.
