Cocaine Blues

	  
verse 1 
C# 
Early one mornin' while makin' the round I took a shot of cocaine and I  
G# 
shot my woman down I went right home and I went to bed 
C# 
I stuck that lovin' .44 beneath my head 

verse 2 
C# 
Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun, Took a shot of cocaine and 
G# 
away I run, made a good run but I ran too slow 
C# 
They overtook me down in Juarez, Mexico 

verse 3 
C# 
Late in the hot joints takin' the pills, In walked the sheriff from  
G# 
Jericho Hill He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown 
C# 
You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down 

verse 4 
C# 
Said yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee, If you've got the warrant just  
G# 
a-read it to me, shot her down because she made me sore 
C# 
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more 

Verse 5 
C# 
When I was arrested I was dressed in black, they put me on a train and they  
G# 
took me back, had no friend for to go my bail 
C# 
They slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail 

Verse 6 
C# 
Early next mornin' bout a half past nine, I spied the sheriff coming  
G# 
down the line, Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat He said  
C# 
come on you dirty heck into that district court 

Verse 7 
C# 
Into the courtroom my trial began Where I was handled by  
G# 
twelve honest men, Just before the jury started out 
C# 
I saw the little judge commence to look about 

Verse 8 
C# 
In about five minutes in walked the man, Holding the verdict in  
G# 
his right hand, The verdict read murder in the first degree 
C# 
I hollered Lawdy Lawdy, have a mercy on me 

Verse 9 
C# 
The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 99 years in the  
G# 
Folsom pen, 99 years underneath that ground 
C# 
I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down 

verse 10 
C#                          F# 
Come on you've gotta listen unto me 
G#                                        C# 
Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be
