1. Frankie’s Gun!

F My car goes C Chicago Bb every weekend to pick up some cargo
I think I know the bloody way by now Frankie turn the goddam radio down, thank you
Pull over count the money but don't count the thirty in the glove box buddy
F that's for to C buy Lucille some Bb clothes

Bang bang F bang went Frankies Bb gun
He shot me C down LucilleBb
Bang bang F bang went Frankies Bb gun
He shot me C down Lucille Bb
he shot me F down (he shot me Bb down) C Bb

Workzones double fines don't pass the double lines
trailer McDonalds rest-stop trailer double wind
I saw a man hit my mom one time, really
I hurt him so damn bad I had to hide in jersey
caught my mom told her in the dresser
there's ten or twenty dollars but there ain't no lesser
That's for to take my sister to the picture show

Bang bang bang went Frankies gun
He shot me down Lucille
Bang bang bang went Frankies gun
He shot me down Lucille
he shot me down (he shot me down)

Sha na na

Spit, make a fender shine, Frankie a friend of mine
got me off a bender after long legged Brenda died
I thought we might be on a roll this time, Frankie
I could have swore the box at Hollywood glanced but
if y'see my mama please tell her
I left a little rock in a box in the cellar
that's for to wear til Kingdom Come

Bang bang bang went Frankies gun
He shot me down Lucille
Bang bang bang went Frankies gun
He shot me down Lucille
he shot me down (he shot me down)

Sha na na


2. Trouble Been Hard
Capo on 5

C Young girl upon a G sidewalk,
silver cross upon her silver C chain,
she was born and raised in Coney G Island,
but she'll never make it back that way C again.

Young boy upon a highway,
walk a mile to work a double shift.
Along that long and lonely skyway,
theres a heavy fog that might never lift.

F Troubles been C hard,
although I G know that in that I ain't C alone.
F Troubles been C hard,
Although I G know that in that I ain't C alone.

Young momma upon a bus seat,
One child pullin' on her dress.
Another softly asking to be held,
oh, heaven knows I need so much less,

Troubles been hard,
although I know that in that I ain't alone,
Troubles been hard,
although I know that in that I ain't alone.

Criminals by the river,
says one to one be still.
Can you see that figure on the levee,
if the law dont find us,
lord, the devil will.

Troubles been hard,
although I know that in that I ain't alone.
Troubles been hard,
although I know that in that I ain't alone.

4. Radio Song

E Anna Bell, the dying A leaves are dancing off the E trees
They got an easy B way
E Lets you and me go dancing A too and wreck our dancing E shoes
Hey hey B hey

E Please don't you ever A die, you ever E die, you ever B die
E Move me all of my A life, all of my E life, all of my B life
E Hum our radio A song, radio E song, radio B song
after E every radio's A gone, radio's E gone, radio's B gone

Anna Bell, the dying stars are falling down on us
They got an easy way
Let's you and me go falling too, way out into the blue
Hey hey hey

Please don't you ever die
Move me all of my life
Hum our radio song
after every radio's gone

6. Walk A While
7. Whiskey In My Whiskey

D
I put some Whiskey into my whiskey
.........................G.......................D
I put some heartbreak into my heart
......................D7.....................G
I put my boots on that old dance floor
................D..........A...........D
I put three rounds in my forty-four

I loved a girl .. she was my sunshine
Her name was Eleanor from Caroline
She got fast with a friend of mine
At the dance hall on the county line

I put some Whiskey into my whiskey
I put some heartbreak into my heart
I made my way 'cross that old dance floor
I put three rounds Lord in my Eleanor

I fill my glass with Uncle Jack
I lay my skin in my Sunday Black
I'll make my bed on that railroad track
I'll leave this world, Lord, and I won't look back

I put some Whiskey into my whiskey
I put some heartbreak into my heart
I put my boots on that old dance floor
I put three rounds Lord in my Eleanor

8. Doris Day

9. Oxycontin

D Your shaving your legs in my A bathroom,
so you could wear your blue summer D dress.
Drive me down to the A court house
so I can get my license D back.

Take it G step by step
read it D line by line
sleep well A once in a Bm while
G Take your oxycontin D it will make you smile
come with D me I will A lead you G quietly D on.

Your daughter in the play by the circus
she catches your eye in the crowd.
And I catch the tear down your make up
when the children come out for a bow

Later that night on the front porch
after you put her to bed.
I catch some familiar laughing
I aint heard since I was a kid.

Take it step by step
read it line by line
sleep well once in a while
Take your oxycontin it'll fuck you up
come with me and i'll lead you quietly on

Take it step by step
read it line by line
sleep well once in a while
Take your oxycontin it will fix your smile
Come with me and i'll lead you quietly on
Come with me and i'll lay you quietly down.


10. Where’d You Get The Liquor
F Old man Peter was a Bb mighty F man,
F where'd you get your liquor from the C man downtown.
F Combed his hair with a Bb frying F pan.
F where'd you get your liquor from the C man down F town.
Washed his head in a wagon wheel,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
Died with a toothe ache in his heel.
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.

Oh Sally you just aren't no dog gone good,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
But I wouldn't get rid of ya Sally if I could,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
Ah, dont you send me no foul press,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
We'll play the the band while your little feet dance,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.

I come home around a quarter to four,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
Saw you threw my food all over the floor.
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
I see you walking down the street with a bottle in your hand.
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown.
Looking for another drunkard to raise some sound,
where'd you get your liquor from the man downtown


11. The Devil Is Real

This uses sus4 chords for the grace notes at the end of each phrase
So for the Gsus4 chords you add the C on the 5th string, and for the Dsus4 chord you add the G on the 6th string

G Pharaoh, my Pharaoh, me Bonnie is dead,
She’s in my Em Camaro, with a tear in C her D dress.
Last night at the G drive-in, she kicked off her heels,
And said, Boy, let me Em know if the C devil is G real.

Bonnie, the birthmark at the base of your ass,
Is shaped like the gallows and the shadow it casts,
But Pharaoh, that shadow is shaped like a cross,
Swing, Bonnie, swing till you swing us across

Queens Bridge, oh Queens Bridge, rusty Queensborough,
You’d be our passage to the wide open world,
And we’ve come a-driving with a song in our throats,
Howling our way into the greatest of shows,

Pharaoh, my Pharaoh, the devil is real,
He’s in my Camaro with his teeth on the wheel,
And mile on mile, field after field,
Skyline and silo, and the devil is real.


12. Glory Glory
G Glory glory,
Hallejuah, since I C laid my burden G down.
Glory glory,
Hallejuah, since I C laid my D burden G down,

I'm gonna shake (I'm gonna shake),
the hams of angels (the hams of angels),
since I laid my burger down.
I'm gonna shake (I'm gonna shake),
the hands of angels (the hands of angels),
since I laid my burden down.

Glory glory,
Hallejuah, since I laid my burden down.
Glory glory,
Hallejuah, since I laid my burden down.

No more sickness (no more sickness),
No more sorrow (no more sorrow),
since I laid my burden down,
No more sickness,
No more sorrow,
since I laid my burden down.

Glory...


13. San Antonio Burning

I see C San Antonio G burning,
through the Em bar station wind-F-ow.
I see G angels on boats, beating Em trumpets of gold,
in the G sky above the F old rode-G-o.

As I rolled off my prison mattress,
and I drink from the station house sink.
I can see that blotter in the water,
with my name bleeding newspaper ink.

She was long white legs, and diamonds.
I was a long island lawyer in black.
I should have known as we walked through the worlds fair,
that she'd die with a knife in the back.

Oh doc, Oh doc,
I need my morphine,
as the guard drags his keys across the bars.
I can see Mr. Pain beyond the window frame,
in empty golden hills beyond the stars.

I see San Antonio burning,
through the bar station window.
I see angels on boats, beating trumpets of gold,
in the sky above the old rodeo.
