                               Cocaine Blues
                              by Johnny Cash

      C                       
     Early one mornin while makin the rounds, I took a shot of cocaine and 
 G                                                          C(palm mute)   
shot my woman down. I went right home and I went to bed, I stuck that 
                           C                 
lovin .44 beneath my head. Got up the next mornin and I grabbed that gun.
                            G
Took a shot of cocaine and away I run. Made a good run but I run too slow,
      C(pm)                                C
they overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico. Laid in the hot joints takin the
                                  G
pill. In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill. He said Willie Lee, your name
                   C(pm)
is not Jack Brown, you're the dirty hack that shot your woman down.
C                                                            G
Oh yes, my name is Willie Lee. If you've got a warrant just read it to me.
                                           C
Shot her down because she made me sore. I thought I was her daddy but she
               C                                          
had five more. When I was arrested I was dressed in black. They put me on
                G                                            C
a train and took me back. Had no friend for to go my bail. They slapped my
                                      C                                                      
dried up carcass in that county jail. Early next mornin, bout a half past
                                         G
nine, I spied the sheriff comin down the line. Upped and he coughed as he
                 C
flared his nose, he said well come on you dirty hack into that district
           C
court. Into the courtroom where my trial began where I was held by twelve
       G                                      C
honest men. Just before the jury started out, I saw that little judge come
                  C       
as to look about. In about five minutes in walked a man holding the verdict
             G                                            C
in his right hand. The verdict read in the first degree, I hollered lordy
                          C
lordy have mercy on me. The judge, he smiled as he picked up his pen.
                          G           
Ninety-nine years in the Folsom pen. Ninety-nine years underneath that
         C                                                 C
ground, I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down. Come all, you
             F                 D             G                  C
gotta listen unto me, lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be.

Man someone needs to make a tab for that riff, not just the chords.
