HEY EVERYBODY. JUST THOUGHT THAT NO ONE HAD PROPERLY SUBMITTED A CHORD FOR THIS SONG. SO 
JUST FIGURED THAT I SHOULD DO IT. LATER.


[Verse 1]

C
We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
C                                  C7
We've been talking 'bout Jackson  ever since the fire went out
C                F                   C
I'm going to  Jackson, gonna mess around
C                      F        G7               C
yeah, I'm going to  Jackson,  look out Jackson  town


[Verse 2]

C
Go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health
C                                                    C7
Go play your hand, you big talking man, and make a big fool of yourself
C               F                     C
Yeah, go to  Jackson, go comb your  hair
C                 F                  G7         C
Yeah, I'm gonna snow ball Jackson,  see if I  care


[Verse 3]

C
When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow
C                               C7
all them women gonna make me  teach 'em what they don't know how
C                    F                          C
aw, I'm going to  Jackson, turn aloose of my  coat,
 C                     F        G7                        C
yeah, I'm going to  Jackson,  goodbye, that's all she  wrote


[Verse 4]

 C
I'm gonna laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a pony keg
C                                                      C7
they'll lead ya round town like a scalded hound, with your  tail tucked between your legs
C                F                      C
yeah, go to  Jackson, you big talking  man
C                          F       G7                     C
and I'll be waiting in  Jackson, behind my jaypan(Japan) fan


[Verse 5]

C
We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
C                                  C7
We've been talking 'bout Jackson  ever since the fire went out
C                 F                   C
I'm going to  Jackson, and that's a  fact
C                      F        G7                 C
yeah, I'm going to  Jackson,  ain't never comin'  back

Using some one else s guitar, I just played this song impromptu at a party tonight.... although the guests applauded, I got to see if I got it right.

Thanks for putting this on cashfan!!!!!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know on here that if you use the finger position like the F chord. You can play the F chord on the 8th fret for a C chord. then when it changes
to F play it on the 1st fret,
then the G chord on the 3rd fret

Thats to me is easier and you never have to change your finger pattern and you can also add some note tabs as you go thru it all.

And thanks for this great arrangement cashfan07
