Intro

Dm

Verse 1

Dm Falling James, in the Tahoe mud, Stick around to tell us all the A7tale. Well, he Dmfell in love with a Gun Street girl, And now he's dancing in the Birmingham jail; Dancing in the Birmingham jail.

Verse 2

He Dmtook a hundred dollars off a, Slaughterhouse Joe, Brought a brand new Michigan A7twenty-gauge. He got Dmall liquored up on that road house corn, Blew a hole in the hood of a yellow Corvette, A hole in the hood of a yellow Corvette.

Interlude

Dm A7 Dm

Verse 3

He bought a Dmsecond-hand Nova from a Cuban Chinese, And dyed his hair in the bathroom of a A7Texaco. With a pDmawnshop radio, quarter past four, He left for Waukegan at the slamming of the door, Left for Waukegan at the slamming of the door.

Chorus 1

I said DmJohn, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home. I said John, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home.

Verse 4

He's Dmsitting in a sycamore, in St. John's wood, Soaking day-old bread in kero-A7sene. Well, he was Dmblue as a robin's egg and brown as a hog, He's staying out of circulation, 'till the dogs get tired, Out of circulation, 'ti'l the dogs get tired.

Verse 5

Dm Shadow fixed the toilet with an old trombone, He never get up in the morning on a A7Saturday. Dm Sitting by the Erie with a bull-whipped dog, Telling everyone he saw; "they went that-a-way, boys", Telling everyone he saw; "they went that-a-way, boys".

Verse 6

Now the Dmrain's like gravel on an old tin roof, Burlington Northern pulling A7out of the world. Now a Dmhead full of bourbon and a dream in the straw, And a Gun Street girl was the cause of it all, A Gun Street girl was the cause of it all.

Verse 7

Well he's Dmriding in the shadow by the St. Joe ridge, Hearing the click-clack tapping of a A7blind man's cane. He was Dmpulling into Baker on a New Year's Eve, One eye on a pistol and the other on the door, One eye on a pistol and the other on the door.

Verse 8

Miss DmCharlotte took her satchel down to King Fish Row, Smuggled in a brand new pair of A7alligator shoes, With her Dmfireman's raincoat and her long yellow hair, Well, they tied her to a tree with a skinny millionaire, They tied her to a tree with a skinny millionaire.

Chorus 2

I said DmJohn, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home. I said John, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home.

Verse 9

Dm Banging on the table with an old tin cup, Sing; I'll never kiss a Gun Street girl again. Never kiss a Gun Street girl again, I'll never kiss a Gun Street girl again.

Chorus 3

I said DmJohn, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home. I said John, John; he's long gone, Gone to Indiana; ain't never coming home.
