Understand Your Man
By Johnny Cash

C                           Am
Donít call my name out your window, Iím leaving
F                    G
I wonít even turn my head
C                            Am
Donít send your kin folks to give me no talkiní
D                   G
Iíll be gone like I said
      C                                        C7
Youíd say the same old things that youíve been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut Ďtil Iím gone
C                               Am 
Donít give me that old familiar cryiní cussiní moan,
F    G          C                      Am  
Understand your man (Iím tired of your badmouthiní)
F    G          C
Understand your man.

You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army
And everything else I leave behind.
I ainít takiní nothing thatíll slow down my traveliní
While Iím untangliní my mind.

I ainít gonna repeat what I said anymore
While Iím breathiní air that ainít been breathed before
Iíll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then youíll understand your man (meditate on it)
Understand your man (you hear me talkiní)
Understand your man (remember what I told ya)

Can anyone post the intro and solo
with the slide guitar?

This is one of the few songs that has a steel guitar or trumpets, let alone both. In what world is this the best
-DB13 | 9/4/2005
Well, it's just cool to have a slide guitar,
and trumpets in the same song. It's unique.
I love the lyrics in this song. It's one of
those "Kiss my a$$ goodbye, I'm leavin'" songs. It's right cool.

it seems like a capo sould be placed on the first fret anyone agree?
-Georgejones12 | 5/19/2008
Depends on what version you are listening to. I am sure there are versions, as Cash re-recorded the song, that may have a capo or lack of one but based upon the recording I was tabbing from, this didn't require a capo.
