Tennessee Jed 65bpm

Cold iron shackles, ball and chain,

Listen to the whistle of the evenin' train.

You know you bound to wind up dead,

If you don't head back to Tennessee Jed.

Rich man step on my poor head,

When you get back you better butter my bread.

Well, dyou know, it's like I said,

You better head back to Tennessee Jed.

 

Chorus - Short Instrumental

 

Drink all day and rock all night,

Law come to get you if you don't walk right.

Got a letter this morning, people, all it read,

"You better head back to Tennessee Jed."

Dropped four flights and cracked my spine,

Honey come quick with the iodine.

Catch a few winks, baby, under the bed,

Then you head back to Tennessee Jed.

 

Chorus - Short Instrumental

 

I run into Charlie Fog,

Blacked my eye and he kicked my dog.

My dog, he turned to me and he said,

"Let's head back to Tennessee Jed."

I woke up a feelin' mean, went down to play the slot machine,

The wheels turned around, children, and the letters read,

You better head back to Tennessee Jed
