 Tennessee Stud
 Johnny Cash

 A
 
 A                                  
 Back about eighteen and twenty-five
   G                             
 I left Tennessee very much alive
      A                                           
 I never would've made it through the Arkansas mud
                                E         A   
 If I hadn't been riding on the Tennessee Stud

 A                                       
 Had some trouble with my sweetheart's Pa
 G                                   
 One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
 A                                
 I wrote a letter to my Uncle Fudd
                        E         A   
 And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud

|    A                  G        A   
|The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
|    D                        C         E    
|The color of the sun and his eyes were green
|A                                    
|He had the nerve and he had the blood
|                             E         A   
|There never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

 Drifted on down into no man's land
 Across the river called the Rio Grande
 Raced my horse with the Spaniard's foe
 Til I got me a skin full of silver and gold

 Me and the gambler, we couldn't agree
 We got in a fight over Tennessee
 Pulled our guns and he fell with a thud
 And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud

 {chorus}

 I rode right back across Arkansas
 I whupped her brother and I whupped her Pa
 I found that girl with the golden hair
 She was riding on a Tennessee Mare

 Pretty little baby on the cabin floor
 Little horse colt playing round the door
 I loved the girl with the golden hair
 And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare

 {chorus}

Chords are right but it sounds really good if you capo @ the 2nd fret
