       F (133211@1)  C/E (x3111x@5)Dm7   CTo (x32010@1)the dark side of town

C (x32010@1)See never was taught to read none
E7 (020130@1)No never taught to write
F (133211@1)The only thing my daddy taught

C (x32010@1)And then one day my daddy died
E7 (020130@1)And we laid him in his grave

    F (133211@1)         C/E (x3111x@5)Dm7 CAnd (x32010@1)prayed that he'd be  saved
C (x32010@1)But all I felt was pity
