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 b**ch down

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