A---------------------------------------------

[E]                               [B7]
Well i used to wake the morning before the rooster crowed
[E]                           [A]                  [F#m]
Searchin' for soda bottles, to get myself some dough
[E]                            [B7]
Run 'em down to the corner, down to the country store
[A]
Cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Lowe

A---4--2----
E--------3---0     (instead of a zero just play an [E])

VERSE:
[E]               [B7]             [A]      [G]     [E]
Old Curt was a black man, with white, curly hair
[E]             [B7]             [D]                    [A]  [G]  [E]
When he had a fifth of wine, he did not have a care
[E]                      [B7]             [A]      [G]          [E]
He used to own an old dobro, used to play it across his knees
[E]             [B7]                [D]                [E]
I'd give old Curt my money he's play all day for me

CHORUS:
[A]                           [E]
Play me a song Curtis Lowe, Curtis Lowe
[A]                               [E]
Well i got your drinking money, tune up your dobro
[A]                                 [E]             [F#m]
People said he was useless, them people are the fools
[E]                       [D]                [A]             [E]
Cuz Curtis Lowe was the finest picker to ever play the blues

VERSE
Well he looked to be sixty, and maybe i was ten
Mama used to whop me, but i'd go see him again
I'd clap my hands, stomp my feet, try to stay in time
He play me a song or two then take another drink of wine

CHORUS

e------------------7----
B--------------------8--
G--13-(13)-11-9-11-----9

SOLO (same chords as verse then chorus)

VERSE
On the day old Curtis died, nobody came to pray
Old preacher said some words then they chunked him in the grave
Well he lived a lifetime of playing the black man's blues
And on the day he lost his life thats all he had to lose

CHORUS
[A]                                [E]
Play me a song Curtis Lowe, hey, Curtis Lowe
[A]                                [E]
Well i wish that you was here so everyone could know
[A]                                   [E]              [F#7]
People said you were useless, them people are the fools
[E]                     [D]                [A]             [E]
Cuz Curtis you're the finest picker to ever play the blues

ENDING:
[E]     [D]      [A]      [E] x2
