 This is a really simple tune, and not origionally one of my favorites
 on John Henry, but lately I've noticed how much fun it is to play.

 Intro
 E F G

 Verse
 G               C                    G              D
 Long before the screen door slammed, she was out of xenia
   G                   C                G              D
 A stranger could have loved that town, but she had to leave
   
 Chorus  
   Am                 D          Am             D
 I wish I'd gotten to know her before I fell in love
         G                   Am
 I could say who's to blame, say who's the man in this
 F          D
 cautionary tale
       G                          Am
 But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
     F               D
 Til kitten's out of jail
 
 Verse
 It was like a TV show, the way she stole that car
 Easy now to criticize, easy now to talk
 
 Chorus
 I thought my luck was changing, I guess I was wrong
 I could say who's to blame, say who's the man in this
 cautionary tale
 But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
 Til kitten's out of jail
 
 Bridge
 Em     F    C       G
 Didn't want to be a slave
 Em          F   G
 just turned out that way
 
 (Organ solo:listen for the rythm)
 G Am F D  G Am F D
 
 Chorus
 I thought my luck was changing, I guess I was wrong
 I could say she's to blame, say she's the man in this
 cautionary tale
 But I swore I'd be true and I'll swear and I'll swear
 Til kitten's out of jail
 
 Outro
 G Am F D (Repeat this a couple times, then end on G)
