David Allan Coe 
Merle And Me

G D A G D (X2)

G           D
Back in 1953
 	  	            A
We stole a car old Merle And Me
        	    G 	             D    G
Never thinking wed be put in jail.
 	  	  	  	  D
You might say that we were green 
 	  	            A 
I was barely seventeen
 	  	   G 	  	  D
When they put those bars between old Merle And Me.
 
G 	  	  	  	   D
Late one night we hit the wall
 	  	  	  A
Twenty feet we had to fall
 	   	         G 	  	  	 D
To the ground where we could craw into the weeds.
G 	  	  	  	 D
Waiting for that shotgun blast
 	  	  	  	 A
Never thinking we could last
 	       G 	  	      D
We sure had to grow up fast, old Merle And Me.

Chorus:
G 	  	  	  	  D
We were young and crazy then
 	  	  	  A
It was easy to pretend
 	       G 	  	        D
Acting like wed never been in reform school.
G 	  	  	  D
Looking danger in the eye
 	  	  	  	  A
Walking with our heads held high
             G 	  	      D
We were not afraid to die, old Merle And Me.

G D A G D

G 	  	  	     D
We were living by the gun
 	  	  	    A
Never caring what wed done
 	  	  	    G 	    D
Swearing it was all just fun and games you know.
G 	  	           D
We would die and go to hell
 	  	  	  	  A
Before we broke our vow to tell

 	  	 G 	  	        D
How we escaped that prison cell, old Merle And Me.
 
G 	  	  	  	  D
How was Merle or Me to know 
 	  	  	  	  A
We would end up on death row
                G 	  	      D
Waiting for our turn in the electric chair.
G 	  	  	     	   D
Shot down in a grocery store
 	  	  	  A
We got busted at the door
               G 	  	   D
Praying wasn't easy for, old Merle And Me.

Chorus:

G D A G D (X2)
