JACKSON
Recorded by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
Words and music by G. Rodgers and B. Wheeler
         
Both: [C] We got married in a fever, hotter than a 'Pepper Sprout'
Both: We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went [C7] out
John: I'm goin' to [F] Jackson, I'm gonna mess a-[C] round
John: Yea! I'm goin' to [F] Jackson, [G7] look out Jackson [F] town.

June: Well, go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health
June: Go play our hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself
June: Yea! go to Jackson, go comb your hair
John: "Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson."
June: "See if I care."

John: When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow
June: (Hah!)
John: All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how
John: I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat
John: 'Cause, I'm goin' to Jackson
June: Goodbye, that's all she wrote.

June: But they'll laugh at you in Jackson
June: And I'll be dancin' on a 'Pony Keg'
June: They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound
June: With your tail tucked between your legs
June: Yea! go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
June: And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my 'Ja(y)-pan Fan', Well!;

Both: We got married in a fever, hotter than a 'Pepper Sprout'
Both: We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went
Both: I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around
Both: Yea! I'm goin' to Jackson, look out Jackson town.
