I Never Picked Cotton

I Never Picked Cotton  (written by Charles Williams/Bobby George) 
By Johnny Cash (Unchained album 1996) 
 
        E 
Chorus  I never picked cotton 
        A      E          A       E 
like my mother did and my brother did 
       A      E 
and my sister did 
                         A 
and my daddy died young 
          E 
in a coal mine 
 
        F 
1.      When I was just a baby 
too little for the cotton sack 
I played in the dirt while the others worked 
til they couldn't straighten their backs 
F# 
and I made my self a promise 
when I was old enough to run 
that I'd never stay a single day 
in that Oaklahoma sun 
And I... 
Chorus 
        F 
2.      Folks said that I grew up early 
and the farm couldn't hold me then 
so I stole ten bucks and a pick up truck 
and I never went back again 
F# 
and it was fast cars and wiskey 
long legged girls and fun 
I had everything that money could bring 
and I took it all with a gun 
And I... 
Chorus 
 
        F 
3.      It was Saturday night in Memphis 
when a redneck grabbed my shirt 
and he said go back to your cotton sack 
I left him lyin in the dirt 
F# 
and they'll take me in the morning 
to the gallows just outside 
and in the time I've got their aint a hell of a lot 
I can look back on with pride 
But I... 
Chorus X2 
 
Enjoy!
