4/4 - Reggae Strum

[Intro] ||:Cm | Bb | Cm | Bb | Cm | Bb | Ab | Bb :||

[Verse 1]
              Cm
I didn't mean to end his life

I know it wasn't right
            Bb
I cant even sleep at night

Cant get it off my mind
            Cm
I need to get out of sight
                                          Bb
Before I end up behind bars

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

[Pre-Chorus]
                             Cm
Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
                         Bb
Coulda been somebodies son 
                         Cm
And I took his heart when
                    Bb
I pulled out that gun

[Chorus]
Cm                         Bb                              
Rum pu-pu-pum, rum pu-pu-pum

Man Down
Ab                          Bb                              
Rum pu-pu-pum, rum pu-pu-pum

Man Down
Cm
Oh mama mama mama
          Bb
I just shot a man down
                  Cm
In central station
                       Bb
In front of a big ol crowd
Cm               Bb
Oh Why Oh Why
      Ab
Oh mama mama mama
            Bb 
I just shot a man down
           
[Verse 2]
Cm
It's a 22 

I Call her Peggy sue
                         Bb
When she fits right down in my shoes 

What do you expect me to do
                Cm
If you're playing me for a fool

I will lose my cool
                         Bb
And reach for my fire arm
                             Cm
I didn't mean to lay him down
                               Bb
But its too late to turn back now
           Ab
don't know what I was thinking 

Now hes no longer living
      Bb
So imma bout to leave town

[Pre-Chorus]
                               Cm
Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
                           Bb
Coulda been somebodies son 
                          Cm
And I took his heart when
                     Bb
I pulled out that gun

[Chorus]
Cm                         Bb
