Verse 1:
       C             G          A              F
Well I shot a man in Louisville about one year ago, 
       C             G               A                F
He was looking at me cockeyed, and I guess it goes to show, 
          C             G               A        G   F
that Jack Daniels and a pistol can be a powerful enemy, 
C                   G                F
especially when the whiskey's inside me.

Verse 2:
    C                 G                      A       F 
And robbed a bank in Tulsa running from the Federal B.I. 
        C                       G                      A           F
I don't mind telling you that I shot the guard just to watch him die. 
            C               G           A             G        F
And they're still hot on my trail as my drunk driving hugs the rail 
     C                        G         F
that runs south bound all the way down 55.

          C                           G            A             F
Well, I'm prison bound, they're gonna send me down forever and a day. 
       C                           G        F    
So I'm jumping in my truck and I'm headed down old Mexico way.

| C | G | F |     x3
| G |             x1

Verse 3:
   C               G               A             F        
In Salt Lake City, Utah, there's a warrant on my head 
      C         G             A                F         
for a girl in a bordello that someone left for dead, 
              C            G                      A       G      F
and though it wasn't me, I must admit that I was in town at the time 
          C             G                  F
Drunk and shooting guns beneath the desert sky.

Verse 4:
      A            C               F 
I got five hundred miles until I'm free. 
       C           G                      A             F         
When I hit the Rio Grande, John Law can't do nothing to me. 
      C            G                A             F
I got five hundred dollars and five bullets in my gun 
         C             G            F
and if I have to, I'll unload every one.

What you have as A is clearly A minor.
