****************** DON'T CUSS THE FIDDLE *******************
written by Kris Kristofferson
performed by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.

Capo on the 2nd fret.

Verse 1 (W. Nelson):
  B                                                                E
I scandalized my brother while admitting that he sang some pretty songs
    F#                                                                B
I heard that he'd been scandilizing me and Lord i knew that that was wrong
Now i'm looking at over something cool and feeling fool enough to see
        F#                                                      B  
What i had called my brother,now he had every right to call on me

Chorus (W. Jennings,W. Nelson):
 B                                                                  E  
Don't ever cuss that fiddle,boy unless you want that fiddle out of tune
      F#                                                            B  
That picker there in trouble,boy ain't nothing but another side of you
If we ever get to Heaven,boy it ain't because we ain't done nothing wrong
         F#                                                                B   
We're in this thing together so let settle down and steal each other's songs

Verse 2 (W. Jennings):
   B                                                       E  
I found a wounded brother drinking bitterly away the afternoon
     F#                                                              B   
And soon enough he turned on me like he'd done every face in that saloon
Well we cussed him to the ground and said he couldn't even steal a decent song
        F#                                                             B
But as soon as it was spoken we were sad enough to wish that we were wrong

    F#                                                         B 
I know that it sounds silly but i think that i just somebody's song
Verse 3 (W. Jennings,W. Nelson):
  B                                                    E    
She's a good hearted woman in love with a good timin' man
     F#                                                 B  
She loves him in spite of my ways that she don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter we'll pass through this world hand in hand
   F#                                            B  
A good hearted woman in love with a good timin' man
