FEverybody knows where you go when the sun goes down. I think you only live to see the Glights of Ctown. FI wasted my time when I would try, try, try. BWhen the lights have lost their glow, you're gonna Ccry, cry, Fcry. FSoon your sugar-daddies will all be gone. You'll wake up some cold day and Gfind you're Calone. FYou'll call to me but I'm gonna tell you: "Bye, bye, bye," BWhen I turn around and walk away, you'll Ccry, cry, Fcry, FYou're gonna cry, cry, cry and you'll Ccry alone, BWhen everyone's forgotten and Fyou're left on your own. You're gonna Gcry, Ccry, Fcry.

F B F G C F

I lie awake at night and wait 'til you come in. You stay a little while and then you're gone again. Every question that I ask, I get a lie, lie, lie. For every lie you tell, you're gonna cry, cry, cry. When your fickle little love gets old, no one will care for you. You'll come back to me for a little love that's true. I'll tell you no and you gonna ask me why, why, why? When I remind you of all of this, you'll cry, cry, cry. You're gonna cry, cry, cry and you'll cry alone, When everyone's forgotten and you're left on your own. You're gonna cry, cry, cry. INTRO E E E E Hey,Porter,Hey Porter Would you tell me the time? How much longer will it be 'til we cross that F7Mason Dixon B7Line? At dEaylight will you tell that engineer to slow it Adown; Or better still, just Estop the train 'cB7ause I want to look aEround. Hey, Porter! Hey Porter! What time did you say? How much longer will it be 'till I can see the F7light of B7day? When Ewe hit Dixie will you tell that engineer to ring his bAell; And ask everybody that aEin't asleep to sB7tand rightup and yEell. SOLO E E E E E E F7 B7 E E E A A E B7 E EHey, Porter! Hey Porter!

EWhen I was just a baby, My Mama told me, "Son, Always be a good boy, Don't ever play with guns," But I Ashot a man in Reno, Just to watch him Edie, When I B7hear that whistle blowin', I hang my head and Ecry.

A Boy Named Sue GMy daddy left home when I was three And he Cdidn't leave much to Ma and me Just Dthis old guitar and an empty bottle of Gbooze. GNow, I don't blame him cause he run and hid But the Cmeanest thing that he ever did Was beDfore he left, he went and named me 'GSue.' Well, heFo must o' thought that is was quite a joke And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk, It seems I had to fight my whole life through. Some gal would giggle and I'd get red And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head, I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named 'Sue.' Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean, My fist got hard and my wits got keen, I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame. But I made me a vow to the moon and stars That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars And kill that man that give me that awful name. Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July And I just hit town and my throat was dry, I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew. At an old saloon on a street of mud, There at a table, dealing stud, Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me 'Sue.' Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had, And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye. He was big and bent and gray and old, And I looked at him and my blood ran cold And I said: ÒMy name is 'Sue!' how do you do! Now you gonna die!Ó Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes And he went down but, to my surprise, He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear. But I busted a chair right across his teeth And we crashed through the wall and into the street Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer. I tell ya, I've fought tougher men But I really can't remember when, He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile. I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss, He went for his gun and I pulled mine first, He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile. And he said: Son, this world is rough And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough And I know I wouldn't be there to help ya along. So I give ya that name and I said good-bye I knew you'd have to get tough or die And it's that name that helped to make you strong.Ó He said: 'Now you just fought one hell of a fight And I know you hate me, and you got the right To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do. But ya ought to thank me, before I die, For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you 'Sue'.' I got all choked up and I threw down my gun And I called him my pa, and he called me his son, And I come away with a different point of view. And I think about him, now and then, Every time I try and every time I win, And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him Bill or George! Any damn thing but sue! I still hate that name! WCell, I woke up Sunday morning With no wFay to hold my hGead that didn't Churt. And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't Ambad, So I had one more for dessGert. Then I fCumbled in my closet through my clFothes And found my cleanest dirty sChirt.Am Then I wFashed my face and cGombed my hair And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day. I'd smCoked my mind the night before With cFigarettes and Gsongs I'd been pCicking. But I lit my first and watched a small kidAm Playing with a can that he was Gkicking. Then I wCalked across the street And caught the FSunday smell of someone frying cChickenAm. And Lord, it Ftook me back to sometGhing that I'd lost Somewhere, somehow along the Cway. On a Sunday morning sFidewalk, I'm wishing, Lord, that I was sCtoned. 'Cause there's something in a GSunday That makes a body feel aClone. And there's nothing short a' Fdying That's half as lonesome as the Csound Of the sleeping city sGidewalk And Sunday morning coming Cdown. In the park I saw a daddy With a laughing little girl that he was swinging. And I stopped beside a Sunday school And listened to the songs they were singing. Then I headed down the street, And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing, And it echoed through the canyon Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday. On a Sunday morning sidewalk, I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned. 'Cause there's something in a Sunday That makes a body feel alone. And there's nothing short a' dying That's half as lonesome as the sound Of the sleeping city sidewalk And Sunday morning coming down. 12. Man In Black C Well, you wonder why I always dress in black Why you never see bright colors on my D back? And F why does my ap-C pearance Seem to F have a sombre C tone? Well, there's D a reason for the things that I have G7 on. C I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of D town I F wear it for the pri-C soner Who has F long paid for his C crime But is D there because he's a victim of the G7 times. I wear the black for those, who've never read Or listened to the words, that Jesus said About the road to happiness, through love and charity Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me. Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose In our streak-of-lightnin' cars and fancy clothes But just so we're reminded of, the ones who are held back Up front there oughta be a man in black. I wear it for the sick and lonely old For the reckless ones, whose bad trip left them cold I wear the black in mournin', for the lives that could have been Each week we lose a hundred fine young men. And I wear it for the thousands who have died Believin' that the Lord was on their side I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died Believin' that we all were on their side. Well, there's things that never will be right, I know And things need changin' ev'rywhere you go But 'til we start to make a move, to make a few things right You'll never see me wear a suit of white. C Aw! I'd love to wear a rainbow every day And tell the world that ev'rything's D OK But I'll F try to carry C off a little F darkness on my C back 'Til things are brighter G7 I'm the man in C black. 13. One Piece At A Time FWell, I left Kentucky back in '49 And Bwent to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line The Cfirst year they had me puttin' wheels on cadilFlacs Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by And sBometimes I'd hang my head and cry 'Cause I aClways wanted me one that was long and blackF. One day I devised myself a plan That should be the envy of most any man I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand.

Chorus

FI'd get it one piece at a time And it Bwouldn't cost me a dime You'll kCnow it's me when I come through your tFown I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna dBrive ever'body wild 'Cause I'll Chave the only one there is arFound. So the very next day when I punched in With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends I left that day with a lunch box full of gears Now I never considered myself a thief But GM wouldn't miss just one little piece Especially if I strung it out over several years. The first day I got me a fuel pump And the next day I got me an engine and a trunk Then I got me a transmission and all of the chrome The little things I could get in my big lunchbox Like nuts, an' bolts, and all four shocks But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home. Now up to now my plan went allright 'Til we tried to put it all together one night And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong. The transmission was a '53 And the motor turned out to be a '73 And when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone. So we drilled it out so that it would fit And with a little bit of help with an A-daptor kit We had that engine runnin' just like a song Now the headlight' was another sight We had two on the left and one on the right But when we pulled out the switch all three of 'em come on. The back end looked kinda funny too But we put it together and when we got thru Well, that's when we noticed that we only had one tail-fin About that time my wife walked out And I could see in her eyes that she had her doubts But she opened the door and said "Honey, take me for a spin." So we drove up town just to get the tags And I headed her right on down main drag I could hear ever'body laughin' for blocks around But up there at the court house they didn't laugh 'Cause to type it up it took the whole staff And when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds.

Chorus

I got it one piece at a time And it didn't cost me a dime You'll know it's me when I come through your town I'm gonna ride around in style I'm gonna drive ever'body wild 'Cause I'll have the only one there is around. (Spoken) Ugh! Yow, RED RYDER This is the COTTON MOUTH In the PYSCHO-BILLY CADILLAC Come on Huh, This is the COTTON MOUTH And negatory on the cost of this mow-chine there RED RYDER You might say I went right up to the factory And picked it up, it's cheaper that way Ugh!, what model is it FWell, It's a '49, '50, '51, '52, 'B53, '54, '55, '56 C'57, '58' 59' AutomoFbile (Fade) It's a '60, '61, '62, '63, B'64, '65, '66, '67 C'68, '69, '70 AutomobFile. 14.Highway Man
