Guitar chords with lyrics

|A chord diagramC majorC       |
Ev'ry one con-sidered him the coward of the county
   |               |              |                |A chord diagramG+G     |
He never stood one single time to prove the county wrong
    |A chord diagramC majorC      |
His momma named him Tommy the folks just called him yellow
|               |                 |A chord diagramC majorC      |
Something always told me they were readin' Tommy wrong

|           |                      |A chord diagramC majorC       |
He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison
|              |             |               |A chord diagramG+G      |
I looked after Tommy 'cos he was my brothers son
  |A chord diagramC majorC       |
I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy
|              |        |A chord diagramC majorC        |
Son my life is over but yours has just beg-un

|A chord diagramC majorC     |
Promise me son  not to do the things I've done
|A chord diagramG+G      |
walk away from trouble if you can
    |A chord diagramC majorC
Now it won't mean your weak if you turn the other cheek
                   |A chord diagramG+G
I hope your old enough to under-stand
|                  |A chord diagramC majorC    |
you don't have to fight to be a man

        |A chord diagramC majorC
There's someone for every one and Tommys love was Becky
|              |              |              |A chord diagramG+G   |
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man
    |A chord diagramC majorC       |
One day while he was workin' the Gatlin boys came callin'
|                  |       |A chord diagramC majorC
They took turns at Becky   There was three of them

|          |               |A chord diagramC majorC        |
Tommy open up the door and saw his Becky cryin'
    |              |                 |                  |A chord diagramG+G     |
The torn dress the shattered look was more than he could stand
   |A chord diagramC majorC      |
He reached above the fire place and took down his daddys picture
       |                 |              |A chord diagramC majorC
as the tears fell on his Daddys face he heard these words a-gain

|             |        |A chord diagramC majorC     |
Promise me son  not to do the things I've done
|A chord diagramG+G      |
walk away from trouble if you can
    |A chord diagramC majorC
Now it won't mean your weak if you turn the other cheek
                   |A chord diagramG+G
I hope your old enough to under-stand
|                  |A chord diagramC majorC    |
you don't have to fight to be a man

    |A chord diagramD MajorD
The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the bar room
|                 |                |                     |A chord diagramA7A7     |
one of them got up    and met him half  way 'cross the floor
     |A chord diagramD MajorD      |
when Tommy turned around they said Hey look ol' Yellows leaving
    |                                       A chord diagramD MajorD
But you could-a heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped and locked the door

|A chord diagramD MajorD        |
Twenty years of crawlin' was bottled up in-side him
   |              |                   |           |A chord diagramA7A7   |
he wasn't holdin' nothin' back he let 'em have it all
     |A chord diagramD MajorD    |
when Tommy left the Bar room not a Gatlin boy was standin'
   |                               |A chord diagramD MajorD
He said this one's for Becky as he watched the last one fall

And I heard him say.
  |A chord diagramD MajorD
I promised you Dad  not to do the things you done
  |A chord diagramA7A7
I walk away from trouble when I can
    |A chord diagramD MajorD |
now please don't think I'm weak I did-n't turn the other cheek
    |               |A chord diagramA7A7                     |
and Popa I sure hope you understand some-times you've gotta fight
            |A chord diagramD MajorD      |
when your a man
|            |               |A chord diagramD MajorD
Every one considered him the coward of the county
