TRUDY – THE CHARLIE DANIELS BAND

INTRO: A↓ Blues Scale

CHORUS:               D7
Call up Trudy on the telephone
                         A7
Send a letter in the mail 
                         E7
Tell her I'm hung up in Dallas 
                                 A7
And they won't let me outta this jail 

                              D7
And if she asks you how I'm fairing 
                                   A7
Tell her I'm just about to lose my mind 
                             E7  
Worried about old Johnny Lee Walker 
                      A7    A↓ Blues Scale
And the girl I left behind 

VERSE:                             D7
Now Johnny Lee Walker was a card mechanic 
                                     A7
Had a hand for trouble and an eye for cash 
                       E7
Luckiest man in Dallas County 
                                          A7
He had a gold watch chain and a black moustache 

                                          D7
And he loved his whiskey and he loved his women
                               A7
Drove a big long Cadillac limousine 
                               E7
Kept a big fine fancy townhouse in Dallas 
                           A7
And a hotel suite in New Orleans 

                                            D7
Carried a switchblade knife in his left hip pocket
                              A7
And a 44 hog leg up under his coat 
                           E7
Cut you down in a New York minute 
                                          A7    A↓ Blues Scale
If he catch you cheating that was all she wrote 

CHORUS:               D7
Call up Trudy on the telephone
                         A7
Send a letter in the mail 
                         E7
Tell her I'm hung up in Dallas 
                                 A7
And they won't let me outta this jail 

                            D7
And if she asks you how I'm fairing 
                                   A7
Tell her I'm just about to lose my mind 
                             E7  
Worried about old Johnny Lee Walker 
                      A7    A↓ Blues Scale
And the girl I left behind 


VERSE:  (Bass)                 D7
I just got to town last Friday evening 
                            A7
Sure as hell didn't mean to stay 
                              E7
I was on my way back to Louisiana 
                                     A7
Had a powerful thirst and six months pay 

(+Guitar)                           D7        
I met a peroxide blonde in a bar on D-ville
                                A7
I was flying high and feeling mean 
                                   E7
Poured down a bottle and a half of red eye 
                                   A7
I dropped 35 dollars in the slot machine 

(+Piano)                             D7
And the boys in the back was dealing seven card 
                                    A7
I set down and won me a hundred and ten 
                                      E7
I was raking in chips like Grant took Richmond 
                                     A7
Till big Johnny Lee come a strolling in 

                                 D7
He ripped off the table like a 707 
                                 A7 
Pretty soon he done won all of my bread 
                                           E7
I accused him of cheating he reached for a pistol 
                                         A7
I grabbed a chair and went upside of his head 

                                      D7
Then I took off a running like a motorcycle 
                                     A7
Heard the bullets whining and sirens wail 
                                     E7
But it took half the cops in Dallas County 
                                A7    A↓ Blues Scale
Just to put one coon ass boy in jail 

CHORUS:               D7
Call up Trudy on the telephone
                         A7
Send a letter in the mail 
                         E7
Tell her I'm hung up in Dallas 
                                 A7
And they won't let me outta this jail 

                            D7
And if she asks you how I'm fairing 
                                   A7
Tell her I'm just about to lose my mind 
                             E7
Worried about old Johnny Lee Walker 
                      A7   
And the girl I left behind          (Repeat final chorus and then fade out)
