INTRO: D  C  G

        G
I got a letter this mornin, what you reckon it read
G
Hurry hurry, the one you love is dead
        C                                       G
I got a letter this mornin, what you reckon' it read
        D           C                    G
It said hurry hurry, the one you love is dead


So I grabbed up my suitcase, head out down the road
When I got there she's lyin' out on the coolin' board
I grabbed up my suitcase and I headed out down the road
When I got there she was layin' out on that coolin' board


Well I walked up right to her, looked down on her face
Said good God gal you gotta stay here 'til Judgment Day
Well I walked right up and I looked down right on her face
I said good God old gal you gotta lay here 'til Judgment Day


Well it looked like to me ten thousand people standin' 'round
I didn't I loved her 'til the sun went down
It looked like to me ten thousand people standin' 'round the burial ground
You know I didn't know I loved her 'til they laid her body down


I said Lord have mercy on my wicked soul
I wouldn't mistreat nobody for my weight in gold
I said God have mercy on this man's wicked soul
You know I wouldn't mistreat nobody not for my weight in gold


Well I put my arms up and I swore too
I said farewell honey, I'll see you Judgment Day
Oh, yeah, and then I walked away
I said farewell, farewell, farewell, I'll you on Judgment Day


No I didn't feel so bad, 'til the sun went down
Didn't have nobody to throw my arms around
I didn't feel so bad until I saw the sun go down
You know I didn't have a soul to put my arms around, yeah


SOLO: G  C  G  
      D  C  G  
      D  C  G


I love you baby like I love myself
But if you won't have me you won't have nobody else
I love you honey, better than I did myself yeah
But if you won't have me, you won't have nobody else


'Cause you know love'll make you do things you don't wanna do
Sometimes love make you feel so sad and blue
You know it's hard to love somebody when they don't love you
No there's no satisfaction, no no matter what you might do

            G/                                        G     
Yeah I said hush, I thought I heard her call my name
C                                      G    D  C  G
It sounds so loud, it sounds so plain
       G        C   G   D  C  G
I said hush
