[Verse]

Am
I didn't mean to end his life   
                                 Am
I know it wasn't right 
          Em
I cant even sleep at night 
                                     Em
Cant get it off my mind 
           Am
I need to get out of sight 
                                      Em
Before I end up behind bars 


                     Am
What started out as a simple altercation 
             Em
Turned into a real sticky situation 
             Am
Me just thinking on the time that im facing 
Am                       Em
Makes me wanna cry 


[Pre-Chorus]

             Am                          G
Cause I didn't mean to hurt him 
             Em                       Am
Coulda been somebodies son 
Am                 G
And I took his heart when 
Em                    Am
I pulled out that gun 

                                        Am                         Em
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum 
Am
Man Down 
                                        Am                         Em
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Am
Man Down 


[Chorus]

      Am                Am
Oh mama mama mama 
        G
I just shot a man down 
                Am
In central station
                   Em 
In front of a big ol crowd 

     Am         Em
Oh Why Oh Why
     Am                 Am
Oh mama mama mama 
        G
I just shot a man down 
                Am 
In central station 


[Verse]

Am
It's a 22 
  Am
I call her Peggy Sue 
                       Em
When she fits, right down in my shoes 
         Em
What you expect me to
                    Am
Do if you are play-ing me for a fool 
                     Am
I will lose my cool 
                      G
And reach for my firearm 


                         Am
I didn't mean to lay him down
                            Em 
But it’s too late to turn back now 
         Am
Don’t know what I was thinking 
        Am
Now he’s no longer living
     Em 
So I’m about to leave town 


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                          G
Cause I didn't mean to hurt him 
             Em                       Am
Coulda been somebodies son 
Am                 G
And I took his heart when 
Em                    Am
I pulled out that gun 

                                        Am                         Em
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum 
Am
Man Down 
                                        Am                         Em
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum


[Chorus]

      Am                Am
Oh mama mama mama 
        G
I just shot a man down 
                Am
In central station
                   Em 
In front of a big ol crowd 

     Am         Em
Oh Why Oh Why
     Am                 Am
Oh mama mama mama 
        G
I just shot a man down 
                Am 
In central station
