***Capo On First Fret***

[Intro]
A (Reapeted a few times)

[Verse]
     A              E7
On A Monday I was Ar-rested (Uh-huh)
     E7                        A
On A Tuesday they locked me in Jail (Poor Boy)
     A                         E7
On A Wednesday my trial was at-tested
         E7                                             A
And on a Thursday they said guilty as the judge's Gavel fell

[Chorus]
      A                          E7
I Got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
      E7                       A
I got chains, Chains around my feet
      A                          E7
I got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
         E7                                         A  
And them chains them chains they're bout to drag me down

[Verse]
     A                         E7
On A Monday I Got My Stripe-ed Britches
     E7                        A
On A Tuesday I Got My Ball And Chain
     A                             E7
On A Wednesday I'm Workin' Diggin' Ditches
     E7                                              A
On A Thursday Lord I Begged 'Em Not To Knock Me Down Again

[Chorus]
      A                          E7
I Got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
      E7                       A
I got chains, Chains around my feet
      A                          E7
I got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
         E7                                         A - C - C - C - C 
And them chains them chains they're bout to drag me down

[Verse]
     C                       G
On a Monday My momma came to see me
     G                             C
On a tuesday they caught me with a file
     C                         G
On a Wednesday im down in soli-tary
     G                                         C
On A Thursday I Start On Bread And Water For A While

[Chorus]
      C                          G
I Got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
      G                        C
I got chains, Chains around my feet
      C                          G
I got stripes, Stripes around my shoulders
         G                                          C  
And them chains them chains they're bout to drag me down

I'm amazed at the unanimous endorsement of this tab. I'll be the first to say Johnny played a song in different keys at different times, but I've looked at a few on youtube from early to late and all have him playing C with capo 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx6NUyyEwJs as I have submitted in version 2 http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/j/johnny_cash/i_got_stripes_ver2_crd.htm of this tab with a key change UP to D. There's probably some recording I haven't heard, but I can't find it.

GD I hope we're not talking about the Joaquin Phoenix version. I liked the movie, but he sucked at singing Cash. Most times he was a whole step higher and just sounds crappy with no depth. (nope though, that's just C-G like my version, but on capo 2 and no key change...).

the reason Joaquin Phoenix sounded like that is because he actually had to lower his voice and re record all of the music
