David Allan Coe - Merle And Me guitar chord

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 we’d 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 we’d 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)
