RIFF: 2(4bend up) 2(3) 2(1) 3(2) 4(0h2) 4(0) 5(3) 6(3) C

C                                  RIFF
Cold iron shackles, ball and chain
F                            G       C     RIFF
Listen to the whistle of the evenin' train
C           Co7      Dm7         C   C7
You know you bound to wind up dead
     F                     G      C   RIFF
If you don't head back to Tennessee Jed

C                              RIFF
Rich man step on my poor head
F                             G         C     RIFF
When you get back, you better butter my bread
         Co7    Dm7          C  C7
Well you know it's like I said:
    F                    G        C
you better head back to Tennessee Jed

Bb F G  C
F                           C                  G       F
Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be
C              G     F    C      G      F    RIFF
Baby won't you carry me   back to Tennessee

Drink all day and rock all night
The law come to get you if you don't walk right
Got a letter this mornin', baby and all it read:
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed"
I 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

I run into Charlie Fog
Blacked my eye and he kicked my dog
My doggie turned to me and he said
"Let's head back to Tennesse Jed"
I woke up feelin' mean
I went down to play the slot machine
The wheels turned around and the letters read
"You better head back to Tennessee Jed"...CHORUS

Co7: x3x242	Dm7: x00211	C7: 3x2310

NOTE: This is exactly the same as the previous posting except that I
perfer this format and I thought others might too.
