"Poor Rambler"
Sturgill Simpson (Ralph Stanley)
High Top Mountain (2013)


[Verse 1]
         G
Come and gather around me good people
          D7     G
My life I must reveal
     G
Well tomorrow might have been different
                  D7               G
And I know how my darling ought to feel


[Verse 2]
          G
Well that last time I saw my woman
                     D7     G
She had a wine glass in her hand
        G
She was drinking down her troubles
                D7    G
With a low down sorry man


[Verse 3]
       G
Well I wrote my Momma a letter
               D7       G
And I told her I was in jail
         G
Well she wrote me back in a hurry
                       D7                  G
Saying honey I'm gonna come and throw your bail


[Verse 4]
           G
Well I'm a laying around in this old jail house
                   D7     G
Forty dollars will pay my fine
       G
Pretty women swarming all around me
                D7         G
Marijuana has destroyed my mind


[Chorus]
        G
Give me corn bread when I'm hungry
             D7       G
Corn whiskey when I'm dry
       G
Pretty women swarming all around me
             D7     G
Sweet Heaven when I die


[Solo]

[Verse 5]
        G
Well my Daddy taught me plenty
                 D7        G
And my Momma she taught me more
            G
She said if I didn't quit my rowdy ways
                 D7             G
I'd have trouble knocking at my door


[Verse 6]
        G
When my Earthly trials are over
                   D7          G
Throw my cold dead body in the sea
          G
Tell that false hearted lover of mine
                          D7        G
That the whales are gonna fuss over me


[Chorus]
        G
Give me corn bread when I'm hungry
             D7       G
Corn whiskey when I'm dry
       G
Pretty women swarming all around me
             D7     G
Sweet Heaven when I die
