C
Early one morning while making the rounds

                               G7
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down


I went right home and I went to bed 

  C
I stuck that loving 44 beneath my head



Got up next morning and I grabbed that gun 

                           G7
Took a shot of cocaine and away I run


Made a good run but I run too slow
 
     C
They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico



Late in the hot joints taking the pills 

                           G7
In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill


He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown

   C
You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down



Said yes oh yes my name is Willy Lee
 
                               G7
If you've got the warrant just a-read it to me


Shot her down because she made me slow

  C
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more



When I was arrested I was dressed in black

                                G7
They put me on a train and they took me back


Had no friend for to go my bail 

     C
They slapped my dried up carcass in that country jail



Early next morning bout a half past nine 

                           G7
I spied the sheriff coming down the line


Talked and he coughed as he cleared his throat

   C
He said come on you dirty heck into that district court



Into the courtroom my trial began 

                              G7
Where I was handled by twelve honest men


Just before the jury started out
 
  C
I saw the little judge commence to look about



In about five minutes in walked the man
 
                           G7
Holding the verdict in his right hand


The verdict read in the first degree
 
  C
I hollered Lordy Lordy have a mercy on me



The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 

                G7
99 years in the Folsom pen


99 years underneath that ground 

  C
I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down


                            F
Come on you've gotta listen unto me
 
G7                                        C
Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be
