INTRO: G 
 
    G 
1) Jacob Green got busted for possession 
                                  D 
next morning early he appeared in court 
       G 
But he was sent to jail to wait 
              Am             D 
to be trialed at some later date 
      G                                D 
Next morning early, there came a sad report 
      G 
At the jail they took away his clothes to shame him 
            	  	  	  	    D 
and to make sure Jacob Green had no pride left 
    G                Am 
They cut of all his hair 
 	   G                  D 
Today they found him hanging there 
G                D                G 
afraid to face the day he killed himself 
 
CHORUS: 
    C             D                C              G 
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away 
  G                G               D              G 
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun 
     C           D              C                 G 
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you''ve never seen 
             G                 D      G 
It could be someone that you love gets done 
      D             G 
like Jacob Green got done 
             G                D        G 
It could be someone that you love gets done 
      D              G 
like Jacob Green got done 
 
2)Jacobs father hired a team of lawyers 
inspections and long inquiries were held 
The sheriff then retired 
and the papers said two guards were fired 
They put a brand new coat of paint on Jacob''s cell 
But like a tomb that looks so white and shiny 
inside you''ll find corruption never seen 
And somewhere out there tonight 
In a dirty cell without a light 
There will be locked up another Jacob Green 
 
CHORUS: 
    C             D                C              G 
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away 
  G                G               D              G 
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun 
     C           D              C                 G 
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you''ve never seen 
             G                 D      G 
It could be someone that you love gets done 
      D             G 
like Jacob Green got done 
             G                D        G 
It could be someone that you love gets done 
      D              G 
like Jacob Green got done
