As | [A] I was motivatin' | over the hill
I | [A] saw Maybellene in a | coup de ville
A | [A] Cadillac a-rollin' on the | open road,

The | [A] Cadillac pulled up ahead | of the Ford,
The | [A] Ford got hot and wouldn't | do no more
It | [A] then got cloudy and it | started to rain,
I | [A] tooted my horn for a | passin' lead
The | [A] rain water blowin' all | under my hood,

The | [A] motor cooled down, | the heat went down
And | [A] that's when I heard that | highway sound
The | [A] Cadillac a-sittin' like a | ton of lead

A Boy Named Sue
Johnny Cash (Shel Silverstein, 1969)


Carter Picking
4/4 | T3 - D u T4 - D u |
      1    2 & 3    4 &

Intro
| [A] | [A] | [A] | [A] |

Well my [A] daddy left home when I was three
And he [D] didn't leave much to ma and me
Just [E7] this old guitar and an empty bottle of [A] booze.
Now, [A] I don't blame him cause he run and hid
But the [D] meanest thing that he ever did
Was [E7] before he left, he went and named me [A] "Sue."

Well, he [A] must o' thought that it was quite a joke
And it [D] got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk,
It [E7] seems I had to fight my whole life [A] through.
Some [A] gal would giggle and I'd get red
And [D] some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell [E7] ya, life ain't easy for a boy named [A] "Sue."

Well, I [A] grew up quick and I grew up mean,
My [D] fist got hard and my wits got keen,
[E7] I'd roam from town to town to hide my [A] shame.
But I [A] made a vow to the moon and stars
That [D] I'd search the honky-tonks and bars
[E7] And kill that man who gave me that awful [A] name.

Well, it was [A] Gatlinburg in mid-July
And I [D] just hit town and my throat was dry,
I [E7] thought I'd stop and have myself a [A] brew.
At an [A] old saloon on a street of mud,
[D] There at a table, dealing stud,
[E7] Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me [A] "Sue."

Well, I [A] knew that snake was my own sweet dad
From a [D] worn-out picture that my mother'd had,
And I [E7] knew that scar on his cheek and his evil [A] eye.
He was [A] big and bent and gray and old,
And I [D] looked at him and my blood ran cold
And I [E7] said: "My name is 'Sue!' [A] How do you do! Now you gonna die!!"

Well, I [A] hit him hard right between the eyes
And [D] he went down, but to my surprise,
[E7] He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my [A] ear.
But I [A] busted a chair right across his teeth
And we [D] crashed through the wall and into the street
[E7] Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the [A] beer.

[A] I tell ya, I've fought tougher men
But [D] I really can't remember when,
He [E7] kicked like a mule and he bit like a croco- [A] dile.
I [A] heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss,
[D] He went for his gun and I pulled mine first,
He [E7] stood there lookin' at me and I saw him [A] smile. And he said: "Son...

[A] "...this world is rough
And if a [D] man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
And I [E7] knew I wouldn't be there to help ya a- [A] long.
So I [A] give ya that name and I said goodbye
I [D] knew you'd have to get tough or die
And it's the [E7] name that helped to make you [A] strong."

He said: "Now [A] you just fought one hell of a fight
And I [D] know you hate me, and you got the right
To [E7] kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you [A] do.
But ya [A] ought to thank me, before I die,
For the [D] gravel in your guts and the spit in the eye
Cause [E7] I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you [A] "Sue."

Yeah, [A] what did I do? What could I do?
I got [D] all choked up and I threw down my gun
And I [E7] called him my pa, and he called me his son,
And I [A] came away with a different point of view.

And I [A] think about him, now and then,
Every [D] time I try and every time I win,
And [E7↓] if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him
Bill or George! Anything but [A] Sue! I still hate that name! [A↓]

| [D] Oh it's what you do to | [Bm] me, what you do to | [D] me |

| [D] Hey there Delilah, I know | [F#m] times are getting hard
But just | [D] believe me girl some day, I'll pay the | [F#m] bills with this guitar,
We'll have it | [Bm] good ... | [G] we'll have the [A] life we knew we | [Bm] would
My word is | [A] good |   

| [D] Hey there Delilah, I've got | [F#m] so much left to say
If every | [D] simple song I wrote to you, would | [F#m] take your breath away
I'd write it | [Bm] all ... | [G] even more in [A] love with me you'd | [Bm] fall
We'd have it | [A] all |

Bridge:
A | [G] thousand miles seems pretty far, but | [A] they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd | [D] walk to you if I had no other | [Bm] way...
Our | [G] friends would all make fun of us, and | [A] we'll just laugh along because
We | [D] know that none of them have felt this | [Bm] way...
| [G] Delilah I can promise you, that | [A] by the time that we get through
The | [Bm] world will never ever be the | [Bm] same... and you're to | [A] blame | [A] |   

| [D] Hey there Delilah you be | [F#m] good, and don't you miss me
Two more | [D] years and you'll be done with school, and | [F#m] I'll be making history
Like I | [Bm] do ... | [G] you'll know it's [A] all because of | [Bm] you
| [G] We can do [A] whatever we want | [Bm] to... |
| [G] Hey there [A] Delilah here's to | [Bm] you, this one's for | [A] you | [A] |

And if you [E7] go down there, you better [F] just beware

Big Bad John
Johnny Cash (Jimmy Dean & Roy Acuff, 1961)


      G           F     G
4/4 | D - - - - - D - | D
      1   2   3   4     1

Every [G] morning at the mine you could see him arrive [F]    
He stood [G] six foot six and weighed 245 [F]  
Kinda [G] broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip [F]    
And [G] everybody knew you didn't give no [F] lip to Big [G] John.
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John.

No[G] body seemed to know where John called home [F]  
He just [G] drifted into town and stayed all alone [F]  
[G] Didn't say much a-kinda quiet and shy  [F]  
And [G] if you spoke at all you just said [F] hi to Big [G] John

[G] Somebody said he came down from New Orleans  [F]  
Where he [G] got in a fight over a Cajun Queen  [F]  
And a [G] crashing blow from a huge right hand  [F]  
Sent a [G] Louisiana fellow to the Promised Land [F] Big [G] John
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

Then [G] came one day at the bottom of the mine  [F]  
When a [G] timber cracked and the men started [F] crying
[G] Miners were praying and their hearts beat [F] fast
And [G] everybody thought they'd breathed their [F] last 'cept [G] John

Through the [G] dust and the smoke of this man made [F] Hell
Walked a [G] giant of a man that the miners knew [F] well
Grabbed a [G] sagging timber and gave out with a [F] groan
And like a [G] giant oak tree just stood there a- [F] lone  Big [G] John
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

With [G] all of his strength he gave a mighty [F] shove
Then a [G] miner yelled out "There's a light up [G] Gove
And [G] 20 men scrambled from w would be [F] grave
Now there's [G] only one left down there to [F] save Big [G] John

With [G] jacks and timbers they started back [F] down
Then [F] came that rumble way down in the [F] ground
And [G] smoke and gas belched from outta that [F] mine
[G] Everybody knew it was the end of the [F] line for Big [G] John        
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

Now they [G] never re-opened that worthless pit  [F]  
They just [G] placed a marble stand in front of it [F]  
[G] These few lines are written on that [F] stand  [G]  
[NC] "At the bottom of this mine, lies one Helluva man.--BIG JOHN".
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G↓] John

'Cos we [Cm] danced on the floor, in the [Gm] round.  [Am]  [Gm]  
So take [Am] my strong ad- [Cm] vice; just remember to always think [Gm] twice.  
[Am](Do think [Gm] twice, do think [Am] twice).

[Gm] She told my [Am] baby we'd [Gm] danced 'till three, then she [Am] looked a me,
[Gm] Then showed a [Am] photo; my [Gm] baby cried; his [Am] eyes looked like [Cm] mine.
Go on [Cm] dance on the floor, in the [Gm] round, baby. [Am]   [Gm]    [Am]  

Pre-Chorus
[Eb] People always told me; be [Gm] careful what you do;
And don't [Eb] go around breaking young girl's [Gm] hearts.
She [Eb] came and stood right by me; then the [Gm] smell of sweet perfume.
This [Eb] happened much too soon; she [D7] called me to her room.

Chorus

Or [G] find myself a rock and roll [D] band that [G] needs a helping [A] hand
Oh [Em] Maggie I wish I'd [F#m] never seen your [Em] face | [A7sus4]
You made a [Em] first class fool out of [A] me
