Performed by Johnny Cash
Lyrics by Peter La Farge


[INTRO]
C G  G C


[Verse 1]
    G               D              G              C
Now I will tell you buster, that I ain't a fan of Custer
        G                C            D
And the General he don't ride well anymore
   G             D            G                C
To some he was a hero, but to me his score was zero
        G                D            G   
And the General he don't ride well anymore


[Verse 2]
    G               D             G              C
Now Custer done his fightin', without too much excitin'
        G                C            D
And the General he don't ride well anymore
        G              D                 G              C
General Custer come in pumpin', when the men were out a huntin'
        G                D            G   
But the General he don't ride well anymore


[Verse 3]
     G                D                   G                  C
With victories he was swimmin', he killed children, dogs and women
        G                C            D
But the General he don't ride well anymore
      G                  D        G                C
Crazy Horse sent out the call, to Sitting Bull and Gall
        G                D            G   
And the General he don't ride well anymore


[Verse 4]
    G                D            G              C
Now Custer split his men, well he won't do that again
          G                C            D
Cause the General he don't ride well anymore
       G                 D                 G       C
Twelve thousand warriors waited, they were unanticipated
        G                D            G   
And the General he don't ride well anymore


[Verse 5]
         G                D              G           C
It's not called an Indian victory, but a bloody massacree
        G                C            D
And the General he don't ride well anymore
            G                D              G                C
There might have been more enthusin', if us Indians had been losin'
        G                D            G   
But the General he don't ride well anymore


[Verse 6]
G                 D              G               C
General George A. Custer, oh his yellow hair had lustre
        G                C            D
But the General he don't ride well anymore
    G                 D              G        C
For now the General's silent, he got barbered violent
        G                D            G   
And the General he don't ride well anymore


[Outro]
       G                D            G  
Oh the General he don't ride well anymore
