Lyrics and Chords

I was a-cutting the rug down at place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man with a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you know who
He said, "Hey there, fellow with the hair colored yellow
What you tryin' to prove
'Cause that's a-my woman there and I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you"
I said, "Excuse me"

/ D - - - / A - - - / D - - - / E - A - / D - - - / 
    / G - E - / D - - - / A - D - - - /

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
'Cause he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord
Pointin' that gun at me
"Oh, wait a minute, mister, I didn't even kiss her
Don't want no trouble with you
And I know you don't owe me but I wish you would let me
Ask one favor from you, say, won't you"

Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps towards the door
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
And you'll never see me no more, for sure

/ D - - - / A - - - / D - - - / A - D - /

Well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray
And the water fell on the floor
And I'm telling you, son, well it ain't no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four
Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou
And that's the break I was looking for
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out toward the door


... Show me the back door
