High Sheriff of Calhoun Parrish (live version)

[Verse 1]
 E                   Bm7                 E 
It was said of the sheriff of Calhoun Parrish
 E                     Bm7          E 
Not to ever touch his daughter Anna Lee,
        G#m                               C#m 
For to look at her with lustful eyes was certain
    A                    B      E7sus2  
To get you time in the penitentiary.

[Verse 2]
 E            Bm7                 E 
It was true, she was quite voluptuous
 E            Bm7              E 
It was true, she had eyes for me;
       G#m                               C#m 
Then one night at a dance she walked up to me
     A                        B           E7sus2  
And asked me would i meet her down by the creek

[Verse 3]
 E                   Bm7          E 
As i listened to her dangerous proposal
 E                   Bm7                 E 
I thought about the high sheriff catching me
      G#m                               C#m 
As i shook my head and quietly left the party,
     A                      B        E7sus2  
I heard her laugh and say "you'll be sorry"

 E                      Bm7          E 
Then came upon my door a loud disturbance,
 E                   Bm7             E 
I opened it to the sheriff and his deputy.
        G#m                          C#m 
He said, "son, did you molest my daughter?"
    A                        B           E7sus2  
I said, "sheriff, i do not know of what you speak."

[Verse 5]
 E                   Bm7            E 
Then he grabbed me roughly by the collar
 E                     Bm7             E 
And flung me sprawling out into the street;
        G#m                          C#m 
There were days in the jail with claustrophobia
 A                         B         E7sus2  
And all on account of that wench Anna Lee

[Verse 6]
 E                       Bm7               E 
Well i finally worked a bar loose from the window
 E                       Bm7            E 
And i made my way into the woods of calhoun,
    G#m                          C#m 
Late that night i came upon the cabin;
 A                           B            E7sus2  
It was the home of Harham Cross, a friend i knew.

[Verse 7]
 E                   Bm7               E 
Would you mind if i sat down at your table
 E                         Bm7                   E 
'cause it's been a while since i've had time to eat
        G#m                       C#m 
And i'll pay y'all back when i'm able,
 A                       B            E7sus2  
But right now the high sheriff is after me.
