Key of C Major 4/4 time

C
 When I was a young boy
E7
 My daddy sat me down
F
 He said "son, don’t you never go"
       F    C/E  Dm7   C
To the dark side of town
C
 I'm talking downtown Memphis
E7
 See, that’s where the black folk play"
F
 And I said Yes sir daddy
           F     C/E  Dm7 C
And then I snuck down any-way

C
 See never was taught to read none
E7
 No never taught to write
F
 The only thing my daddy taught
    F            C/E  Dm7  C
Was white should stay with white

G7                                   F#7
 But I heard it through the alleys
F7
 It floated on the breeze
C             G/B         Am      C/G
 It burst out through the doorways
       F                     G
And it knocked me to my knees
C                        F6  C
 It broke down all of my sen-ses
C                 F  C   F
 Yet make me feel so whole
G                 C     G
 See I was lost until I found
    F     C/E  Dm7  C
The music of   my   soul
    F     C/E  Dm7  C
The music of   my   soul

C
 And then one day my daddy died
E7
 And we laid him in his grave
F
 And my mama she cried and cried and cried
    F           C/E  Dm7 C
And prayed that he’d be  saved
C
 But all I felt was pity
E7
 For he never understood
F
 How could people be so bad
    F       C/E  Dm7 C
Who made me feel so  good
G7
 It went right through my body
F#7 F7
 It grabbed me by my heart

C         G/B       Am
 It shot up from my fingertips
C/G  F                  G
 And tore me right apart

C                     F6  C
 It broke down all my sen-ses
C                 F6 C    G
 Yet made me feel so whole
G                           C     G
 And I will love it til the day I die

    F     C/E Dm7 C
The music of  my  soul
C                     F  C
 It broke down all my senses
C                 F  C    F
 Yet made me feel so whole
C                 F     C
 See I was lost until I found
C             F     C    F
 I was deaf until I heard

G                           C     G
 I’ll make this world come around to

    F     C/E Dm7 C
The music of  my  soul
    F     C/E Dm7 F/G   C
The music of  my________Soul

End with one last strum on C
