	  		****** 
G                                            C 
Run old Molly run, run old Molly run. 
                          G                       D             G 
Tenbrooks gonna beat you, to the bright shining sun. 
                                                        D                   G 
To the bright shining sun, Lord, to the bright shining sun. 
G                                            C 
Tenbrooks was a big bay horse, wore a shaggy mane. 
                          G                       D             G 
He ran all ?round the Midwest, and beat the Memphis train. 
                                                        D           
Beat the Memphis train, Lord beat the Memphis train. 
G                                            C 
Out in Californy, where Molly did as she pleased. 
                          G                       D             G 
Come back to old Kentucky, got beat with all ease. 
                                                        D           
Beat with all ease, Lord, beat with all ease. 
G                                            C 
Tenbrooks said to Molly, what makes your head so red? 
                          G                       D             G 
Running in the hot sun, with a fever in my head. 
                                                        D           
Fever in my head, Lord, fever in my head 
G                                            C 
Molly said to Tenbrooks, you?re looking mighty squirrel. 
                          G                       D             G 
Tenbrooks said to Molly, I?m leaving this old world. 
                                                        D           
Leaving this old world, Lord, leaving this old world. 
G                                            C 
See old Molly coming, she?s coming around the curve. 
                          G                       D             G 
See old Tenbrooks running, straining every nerve. 
                                                        D           
Straining every nerve, Lord, straining every nerve. 
G                                            C 
Hyper, Hyper, you?re not riding right. 
                          G                       D             G 
Molly?s a-beating old Tenbrooks, clear ?round the side. 
                                                        D           
Clear ?round the side, Lord, clear ?round the side. 
G                                            C 
Hyper, Hyper, Hyper my son. 
                          G                       D             G 
Give old Tenbrooks the bridle, and let old Tenbrooks run. 
 
Let old Tenbrooks run, Lord, let old Tenbrooks run. 
G                                            C 
Women?s all a-laughing, children?s all a-crying, 
                          G                       D             G 
Men folks all a-hollin?, old Tenbrooks a-flying. 
                                                        D           
Old Tenbrooks a-flying, Lord, old Tenbrooks a-flying. 
G                                            C 
Go a-catch old Tenbrooks, said hitch him in the shade. 
                          G                       D             G 
We?re gonna bury old Molly, in a coffin ready made. 
                                                        D           
Coffin ready made, Lord, a coffin ready made. 
G                                            C 
Let old Tenbrooks run, Lord, let old Tenbrooks run.
