Muddy water

  		G / / / 2 / 
                     D 
I was home in Macon, Georgia 
                   D7             G 
They kept my Daddy   in the Macon jail 
                                C 
He said, "Son, if you keep your hands clean, uh huh 
G                    D7                  G 
You won't hear those bloodhounds on your trail" 
 
Verse 2: 
I fell in with bad companions 
I robbed a man up in Tennessee 
And I got caught way up in Nashville, uh huh now 
And they locked me up and threw away the key
