Chords: 
C 
Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds 
C                              G 
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down 
G 
I went right home and I went to bed 
  C 
I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head 
 
C 
Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun 
C                           G 
Took a shot of cocaine and away I run 
G 
Made a good run but I ran too slow 
     C 
They overtook me down in Juarez Mexico 
 
C 
Late in the hot joints takin' the pills 
C                          G 
In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill  
G                 
He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown 
C 
You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down 
 
C  
Said yes, oh yes my name is Willy Lee  
C 
If you've got the warrant just a-read it to me 
G 
 Shot her down because she made me sore 
  C 
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more 
 
C 
When I was arrested I was dressed in black 
C                               G 
They put me on a train and they took me back  
G 
Had no friend for to go my bail 
     C 
They slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail 
 
C 
Early next mornin' bout a half past nine 
C                          G 
I spied the sheriff coming down the line 
G  
Ah, and he coughed as he cleared his throat 
             C 
He said come on you dirty heck into that district court 
 
C 
Into the courtroom my trial began 
C                      G 
Where I was handled by twelve honest men 
G  
Just before the jury started out  
  C 
I saw the little judge commence to look about 
 
C 
In about five minutes in walked the man 
C                      G 
Holding the verdict in his right hand 
G 
The verdict read murder in the first degree  
  C 
I hollered Lordy Lordy, have a mercy on me 
 
C 
The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen 
C               G 
99 years in the Folsom pen  
G 
99 years underneath that ground 
  C 
I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down

Outro Chords: 
C                           F                           
Come on you've gotta listen on to me 
D                        G                C 
Lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be.
