    Hey I'm pretty shure i got most of it right, and this is my fist tab so don't 
be too hard on the comments.
    Bb= B flat

    Verse #1
 D                                             F
 My daddy played poker in the woods they say, back in his younger days

 G                                                         D 
 Prohibition was the talk but the rich folks walked to the woods where my daddy stayed 

  D                                    F
 Jugs and jars from shiners, these old boys here they aint biners

 G                                       D
 Came from the 29er's, it didn't take a hole in the ground to put the bottum in their face

    Instrumental: D F G D (2x)

    Verse #2

 Back in the 30's when the dust bowl dried and the woods of Alabama didn't see no light
 My daddy played poker by a hardwood fire, squeezing all his luck from a hot copper wire
 Scrap like a wildcat, fights till the end. Trap a wildcat and take its skin
 Deal from the bottom, put the ace in the hole
 One hand on the jug, but you never do know

    Chorus Intro: C G Bb F

    Chorus #1

 Son come running

 Better come quick

 Bb                       F
 This rotgut moonshine is making me sick

 C                                          G 
 Your momma called the law and they're gonna take me away

 Bb                    F
 Down so far even the devil wont stay 

 Where I called to the Lord with all my soul

 I could hear him rattling the chain on the door

 He couldn't get in, I could see he tried

 Through the shadows of the cage around the 40 watt light


    Chorus #2

 Daddy tell me another story  
 Tell me about the low's and the high's

 Bb                                                    F
 Tell me how to tell the difference between what they tell me is the truth or a lie

 C                                               F
 Tell me why the ones who have so much make the ones who don't go mad

           Bb                                                 F
 with the same skin stretched over their white bones and the same jug in their hand

    Verse #3

 My daddy played poker on a stump in the woods back when the world was gray
 Before black and white went and chose up sides and gave a little bit of both their way
 The only blood that's any cleaner is the blood that's blue or greener
 Without either you just get meaner and the blood you gave gives you away

    Chorus Intro


    Then it's just D F G A till the end.
