This is a fantastically dark song. It has the feel of an evil circus. If there is a 
hell, they play this song in hell and the people of hell enjoy it.

To create the waltzy quality, alternate the bass note with the note on the same fret a 
string below. For the Em in the verse, use the fifth string bar chord on the seventh fret.

Bm                   Em
Born to a good father I have no excuse
F#                                 Bm
I could say I blame someone but what would be the use
Bm                             Em
When I learn to travel now is when I learn to steal
      F#                      Bm          F#         Bm
To ride without a ticket now along the lines of steel


E                         A
Oh you don't know the things I have seen
D                D7                    G            F#
Twenty years out on the road with the Johnson Family
E                       A
Oh you don't know the cages I have seen
D              D7              G             F#
Twenty years in and out of the Johnson Family


I'd harnessed stones and took them to the fence
I found my heart by moved the shop and always made the rent
When I met old George now he showed me to the box
Fresh out the night oh from the day now the money never stops

Oh you can't know the cages I have seen
In and out over the years of the Johnson Family
Oh you can't know the troubles I have seen
Twenty years out on the road with the Johnson Family

Call me a thief and a liar now you know you would be right
Straight as an arrow I sit here tonight
All my debts too heavy boys I cannot pay them down
I pawn my watch and take a walk down to the sea to drown

Oh you can't know the things I have seen
Twenty years out on the road with the Johnson Family
Oh you can't know the cages I have seen
Twenty years out on the road with the Johnson Family
