Johnny Cash My Old Kentucky Home

Intro D

D
Turpentine and dandelion wine, 
                D/F#            G               
I've turned the corner, an' I'm doin' fine.
G                            D   
Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line;
A                         D
Pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine.
G                            D 
Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head,
A                                D 
Going higher and higher 'til I'm dead.

D
Sister Sue is short and stout,
                D/F#         G   
She didn't grow up, she grew out.
G                                 D
Momma says she's plain, but she's just being kind.
A                                  D
Papa thinks she's pretty, but he's almost blind.
G                        D
Don't let her out much except at night.
A                               D 
But I don't care 'cause I'm all right.

CHORUS
D                         D/F#  G            D
Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.
                        A
Young folks roll on the floor.
        D                 D/F#  G            D
Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home.
                     A            D
Keep them hard times away from my door.

D               
Brother Gene is big and mean,
                  D/F#    G 
And he don't have much to say.
G                            D 
He had a little woman who he whooped each day,
    A              D
But now she's gone away.
G                            D 
Got drunk last night, kicked momma down the stairs,
    A                         D
But I'm all right, so I don't care.

CHORUS 
VERSE 1
CHORUS

OUTRO
          D          A            D       A D 
Keep them hard times away from my door

Im from Kentucky and it was a pleasure to do 
this song, I love it.
