 Sing it Pretty Sue
 Words by Johnny Cash
 Recorded: February 10, 1962, Nashville, Tennessee
 
 CAPO: 1st Fret / Key: C# (Db) / Play: C or
 [C] So you gave up all between us for a glamorous career
 And with all [G] your talent you should be the [F] big star of the year [C]
 [C] Then you'll be public property so I release my claim to you
 Go on [G] and give 'em all you've got sing it pretty Sue [C] [C7]
 
 [F] I can't take just part of you and [C] give the world a half
 So [F] smile for all the papers and [C] give 'em autographs [G]
 Go [C] on to all the cites so your public can see you
 But I'll [G] watch on television so sing it pretty [C]Sue
 
 I hope you'll soon be on the top of every hit-parade
 I'll try to be excited 'bout the progress that you've made
 I'll collect your pictures like any fan would do
 And I'll buy all your records so sing it pretty Sue
 
 But I won't ever tell a soul that we have ever met
 I'll just be one of millions who gives the praise you get
 And maybe every year or so I'll drop a card to you 
 To tell you I'm still listening so sing it pretty Sue

 If C is a difficult key for you to play in, try these with the
 same chord pattern (1-5-4-1-5-1-4-1-4-1-5-1-5-1):
 CAPO: 6th Fret / Key: C# (Db) / Play: G or
 CAPO: 4th Fret / Key: C# (Db) / Play: A
 I thought this might help, I can play nearly anything in 
 G. See ya!
