Mean Mary - Bad Ol' John


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G

[Verse 1]
  Am
A man comes along on a breeze and a song

A man called bad ‘ol John
Am
Some say he’s a saint, some say that he ain’t

Some say he’s a cyclone’s spawn 
Am
Folks they say to this very day

Don’t cross that son-of-a-gun
Am
There never been a man any meaner than

Or as bad as bad ol’ John
Am            G   Am   G
Bad ol’ John


[Verse 2]
Am
There never been a course, never seen a horse

Ol’ John could not stick on
Am
There never been a fight he couldn’t set right

Or a friend he’d go back on
Am
When you try to stand and you need a hand 
                      
There’s one thing to count on 
Am
Never been a friend true to the end

Like good ol’, bad ol’ John
Am
Bad ol’ John


[Instrumental]
Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   (2x)


[Verse 3]
Am
The last time I came upon Bad Ol’ John

He was walking on a Florida beach
Am
A guitar in a sack, a banjo on his back

And an alligator on a leash
Am
I was clingin’ to a raft a shark bit in half

John yells, “Mary, I won’t fail ya”
Am
Rode his alligator out, grabbed that shark by the snout

And drug it all the way to Australia
Am  
Bad Ol’ John


[Instrumental]
Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   (4x)


[Verse 4]
Am
You could cross the seas on a flying trapeze
                        
Or rope the morning sun    
Am
But I doubt you’d find any peace of mind
                                   
Or a feat ol’ John’s not done
Am
A man comes along on a breeze and a song

A man called bad ol’ John 
Am
Some say he’s a saint

Oh, some say that he ain’t
Am            F#        F       Am
Oh, he’s just good ol’, bad ol’ John


[Outro]
Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   (2x)
