E7                       Am
When I was just a little young boy,
D                     G
Papa said son, you'll never get far,
E7                          Am
Tell you the reason, if you wanna know,
      D
Cause child of mine,
      Am7         Am  D  E  F#  G
There isn't really very far to go.

E7                      Am
Well, baby baby wants a gold diamond ring,
D                       G 
Wants it more than most any old thing,
E7                    Am 
Well when I get those jelly-roll blues,
D            Am7           Am   D   E   F#   G
Why I go and get anything in this world for you.

E7                         Am
Down to the jewelry store packin' a gun,
D                              G
Says, "Wrap it up I think I'll take this one."
E7                               Am
"A thousand dollars please," the jewelry man said,
D                Am7                   Am  D  E  F#  G
Dupree he said, "I'll pay this one off to you in lead."

G                             D     C  G
Well you know son, you just can't figure,
Am                                   G     D     C    G
First thing you know you're gonna to pull that trigger,
G                             F#   F   E
And it's no wonder, your reason goes bad,
Am              D            G    C G
Jelly-roll will drive you so mad.

E7                                Am    
Judge said, "Son, it's gonna cost you some time."
D                                 G
Dupree said, "Judge you know that crossed my mind."
E7                                    Am
Judge said, "Fact it's gonna cost you your life."
D              Am7                            Am   D   E   F#   G
Dupree said, "Judge you know that seems to me to be about right."

E7                           Am
Baby baby you gonna lose her sweet man,
D                      G
Dupree come out with a losin' hand,
E7                           Am
Baby's gonna weep it up for a while,
D                            Am7               Am   D   E   F#   G
Then go out and find another sweet man's gonna treat her with style.

E7                            Am
Judge said, "Son, I know your baby well,
D                         G
But that's a secret I can never tell."
E7                                Am
Dupree said, "Judge well it's well understood,
D                Am7                Am   D   E   F#   G
But you got to admit that sweet sweet Jelly's so good."

G                             D     C  G
Well you know son, you just can't figure,
Am                                   G     D     C    G
First thing you know you're gonna to pull that trigger,
G                             F#   F   E
And it's no wonder, your reason goes bad,
Am              D            G    C G
Jelly-roll will drive you so mad.

E7                             Am
Same old story and I know it's been told,
D                      G
Some like Jelly Jelly, some like gold,
E7                   Am
Many a man's done a terrible thing
D              Am7           Am   D   E   F#   G
Just to get, baby a shinin' diamond ring.
