Understand Your Man
By Johnny Cash
Donít call my name out your window, Iím leaving
I wonít even turn my head
Donít send your kin folks to give me no talkiní
Iíll be gone like I said
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
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)

|This is one of the few songs that has a steel guitar or trumpets, let alone both. In what world is this the best|

|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?|

|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.|
