I tried to do what my daddy told me

But I must've washed my hands in a muddy stream

And We might just make a descent man outta' you yet

Jerry broke out broke out of that Nashville jail
               A7                    D
And he crossed down there to Atlanta Georgia

And now all you can hear them blood hounds on his trail

I tried to do what my daddy told me
