Capo 3 – Drop D Tuning


You can hear a walk down on the last line as well and it is like this
While staying in the G chord shape:

B-------|

A-------|
D-5-4-3-|


  F                                  F               C
I came to tell my story to all these young and eager minds
   F                                                      F
To look in their unspoiled faces and their curious bright eyes
F                                F                 C
Stories of corruption, crime and killing, yes it's true
F                                                        F
Greed and fixed elections, guns and drugs and whores and booze

It's been a while since I put on a suit of my own clothes
And even longer since I cast my shadow on a church house door
They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong
I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all


Bridge:
  C
I used to have a wad of hundred dollar bills in the back pocket of my suit
         F                                           F
I had a .45 underneath my coat and another one in my boot
  C
I drove a big ole Cadillac, bought a new one anytime I pleased
      F                                                    F
And I put more lawmen in the ground than Alabama put cottonseed


I spent a few years on vacation, sanctioned by the state I mentioned
But a man like me don't do no time too hard to come back from
The meanest of the mean, I see you lock away and toss the key
But they're all just loud mouth punks to me, I've scraped meaner off my shoe

Bridge 2:
Somewhere, I ain't saying, there's a hole that holds a judge
The last one that I dug myself and I must admit I was
Sad to lay him in it, but I did the best I could
Once his Honor grows a conscience, well folks, that there just ain't no good

Bridge 3:
                 F                                           F
There's a pretty girl out there said "Daddy, you stay cool tonight
F                                                     F
All I need from you is to come home and be here by my side
    F                                                 F
Say what you gotta say to shut their Bibles and their mouths
        F            F/F#                  
             F
If they was to tie a noose, they'd have to lay their Bibles down"

I ain't here to save no souls and even if I could
I could never save enough to put back half the ones I took
So if they rest in torment you can't say it's cause of me
They'd long been bought and paid for like that fool's in Tennessee

Bridge 3
