 [INTRO]

  Fm Bb

 [VERSE ONE]
  Fm 
 Well I caught my wife with another man
          Eb             Bb
 And it cost me ninety nine
  Fm
 On a prison farm in Georgia
                        C
 Close to the Florida line

       Fm 
 Well I'd been here for two long years
       Eb             Bb           Fm 
 I finally made the warden my friend
        Fm 
 And so he sentenced me to a life of ease
   C                 Fm
 Taking care of Ol' Red

         Fm                           Eb             Bb Fm 
 Now Ol' Red he's the damnedest dog that I've ever seen
         Fm 
 Got a nose that can smell a two day trail
                                C
 He's a four legged trackin' machine

            Fm
 You can consider yourself mighty lucky
                    Eb            Bb           Fm 
 To get past the gators and the quicksand beds
     Fm 
 But all these years that I've been here
       C               Fm 
 Ain't nobody got past Red

 And the warden sang
  Fm 
 Come on somebody
  Fm
 Why don't you run
                      Eb              Fm 
 Ol' Red's itchin' to have a little fun
  Fm 
 Get my lantern
  Fm 
 Get my gun
  Fm                                 Eb        Fm
 Red'll have you treed before the mornin' comes

 [VERSE TWO]
  Fm 
 Well I paid off the guard and I slipped out a letter
         Eb             Bb  Fm 
 To my cousin up in Tennessee
       Fm 
 Oh and he brought down a blue tick hound
                            C
 She was pretty as she could be

           Fm
 Well they penned her up in the swampland
          Eb          Bb           Fm
 'Bout a mile just south of the gate
          Fm 
 And I'd take Ol' Red for his evenin' run
           C              Fm 
 I'd just drop him off and wait

 And the warden sang
  Fm 
 Come on somebody
  Fm
 Why don't you run
                      Eb              Fm 
 Ol' Red's itchin' to have a little fun
  Fm 
 Get my lantern
  Fm 
 Get my gun
  Fm                                 Eb        Fm
 Red'll have you treed before the mornin' comes
 
 [VERSE THREE]
          Fm
 Now Ol' Red got real used to seein'
      Eb     Bb      Fm 
 His lady every night
          Fm 
 And so I kept him away for three or four days
                                C
 And waited till the time got right

          Fm
 Well I made my run with the evenin' sun
        Eb             Bb               Fm 
 And I smiled when I heard them let Red out
              Fm 
 Cause I was headed north to Tennessee
          C               Fm 
 And Ol' Red was headed south

 [CHORUS]

 And the warden sang
  Fm 
 Come on somebody
  Fm
 Why don't you run
                      Eb              Fm 
 Ol' Red's itchin' to have a little fun
  Fm 
 Get my lantern
  Fm 
 Get my gun
  Fm                                 Eb        Fm
 Red'll have you treed before the mornin' comes
