Subject: "What Mattered Most" by Gary Burr

What Mattered Most
Performed by Gary Burr
Written by Gary Burr and Vince Melamed
From the Gary Burr CD "Stop Me If You've Heard This One"

(I saw Gary Burr do this at the Bluebird, in Nashville. He 
 sings it much slower and with more of a "bluesy" feel than 
 the hit version. After the performance, there wasn't a dry
 eye in the house.)

 D   D/F#  G   A,  D  D/F#  G   A
 
	         D                    D/F#	
I thought I knew, the girl so well
G		               D
If she was sad, I couldn't tell
			        D/F#
I missed the point, I missed the signs
G	    		              D 	 
So if she's gone, the fault is mine
   Em				               D
I know, I know, a whole lot of little things
     Em 			                  D	
And even though, I could list them one by one
		        A7sus         A7
She would still be gone

Chorus
		   D                 D/F#
Her eyes are blue   her hair is long
     G              D/A
In '64        she was born
      A      D
in Baton Rouge
              D/F#             G
Her favorite song    is "In My Life"

              D/A       Bm
I memorized her every move
	       A		        G
I knew her books, her car, her clothes
       D      D/F#     G               A          D   
But I paid,    no  attention   to what mattered most

Verse 2
I never asked, she never said
And when she cried I turned my head
She dreamed her dreams, behind closed doors
That made them easy to ignore
I know, I know, I missed the forest for the trees
Now all I have to show
When she walked out the door
Are cold facts and nothin' more

Chorus

Last Chorus:
Her eyes are blue, her hair is long, In '64
She was born, in Baton Rouge, 
Her father's tall, her mother's gone,
She moved out West when she was two,
The way she laughed, the way she loved,
Oh my God what did I do?

Solo (Verse Chords)


Well he caught her with a quick right cross
Didn't know the line he'd crossed
Now there's blood in her hair
And blood on her clothes
Blood still running from her nose

Well she went and found a box of shells
Gonna send him straight to hell
There were tears on her face 
When her eyes turned black
Didnt know a twelve gauge would kick like that

Chorus


Solo (Verse Chords)


There's a tweleve gauge shot gun lying on the floor
She's not sure that he's breathin anymore
Well they put her in the cop car,
Took her downtown, 
All of the neighbors standing around

And now she's cryin with her head in her hands
And talkin so fast that they dont understand
Said he hit her that morning, 
He hit her that night
All she remembers was the flashing light


Chorus

Johnny Cash – Dont Take Your Guns To Tow Chords



DON'T TAKE YOUR GUNS TO TOWN
Words and music by Johnny Cash

A [C] young cow-[G7] boy named [C] Billy Joe 
   grew [G7] restless on the [C] farm
A boy [G7] filled with [C] wanderlust
   who [G7] really meant no [C] harm
He [F] changed his [C7] clothes and [F] shined his boots
And combed his dark hair down
And his [C] mother [G7] cried as [C] he walked out;

Refrain:

Don't [F] Take Your Guns To [C] Town, son
[F] Leave your guns at [C] home, Bill
Don't [F] Take Your Guns To [C] Town.

He sang a song as on he rode,his guns hung at his hips
He rode into a cattle town, a smile upon his lips
He stopped and walked into a bar and laid his money down
But his mother's words echoed again;

Refrain:

He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
And tried to tell himself at last he had become a man
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
And he heard again his mother's words;

Refrain:

Bill was raged and Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw
But the stranger drew his gun and fired before he even saw
As Billy Joe fell to the floor the crowd all gathered 'round
And wondered at his final words;

Refrain:

      C               G                             D7
WhoÂ’d stay out of the honky tonks and love me every night
   G                            C                         G
So I left you and took the girl that IÂ’d thought would be true
    C                 G             D7              G
But how that I wish I still had the honky tonks and you
 
                                  C               G
I wear the very finest clothes my pockets full of dough
        C               G                       D7
But the love I got from you with her IÂ’ll never know
   G                        C                  G
Oh I have everything I need except the love we knew
    C                 G             D7              G
But how that I wish I still had the honky tonks and you
 
                                C                G
I mingle with the upper class I drive the finest cars
  C                        G                         D7
I drink the most expensive brands and smoke the best cigars
  G                             C                 G
I didnÂ’t know I miss you so and things we used to do

Oh what I'd give if I still had the honky tonks and you

Johnny Cash – Jacob Green Chords


	               JACOB GREEN
Written by Johnny Cash ***********
Recorded live at Osteraker Prison,
Stockholm, Sweden October 3, 1972
B-side of Columbia single

INTRO: G

    G
1) Jacob Green got busted for possession
                                  D
next morning early he appeared in court
       G
But he was sent to jail to wait
              Am             D
to be trialed at some later date
      G                                D
Next morning early, there came a sad report
      G
At the jail they took away his clothes to shame him
           				   D
and to make sure Jacob Green had no pride left
    G                Am
They cut of all his hair
	  G                  D
Today they found him hanging there
G                D                G
afraid to face the day he killed himself

CHORUS:
    C             D                C              G
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away
  G                G               D              G
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun
     C           D              C                 G
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen
             G                 D      G
It could be someone that you love gets done
      D             G
like Jacob Green got done
             G                D        G
It could be someone that you love gets done
      D              G
like Jacob Green got done

2)Jacobs father hired a team of lawyers
inspections and long inquiries were held
The sheriff then retired
and the papers said two guards were fired
They put a brand new coat of paint on Jacob's cell
But like a tomb that looks so white and shiny
inside you'll find corruption never seen
And somewhere out there tonight
In a dirty cell without a light
There will be locked up another Jacob Green

CHORUS:
    C             D                C              G
It happened yesterday, and if you turn your head away
  G                G               D              G
Somewhere in some dirty hole the scene will be rerun
     C           D              C                 G
Not only Jacob Green, but many more you've never seen
             G                 D      G
It could be someone that you love gets done
      D             G
like Jacob Green got done
             G                D        G
It could be someone that you love gets done
      D              G
like Jacob Green got done

               C                               F              C
But there's no need of standing by a fire that lost its final glow
           G7             C
And I sure hate to see me go
           G7             C
And I sure hate to see me go

Johnny Cash – Sunday Mornin Comin Down Chords


    Ê 
Sunday Mornin' Comin'  Down
 
Ê

(A)Well,  I woke up Sunday mornin',

With no  (D)way to hold my (E)head that didn't  (A)hurt,

And the beer  I had for breakfast wasn't (D)bad,

So I had  (E)one more for de(A)sert,

Then I  fumbled in my closet through my (D)clothes,

And found my  (E)cleanest dirty (A)shirt,

Then I  (D)washed my face and (E)combed my hair,

And  (D)stumbled down the (E)stairs to meet the  (A)day,

Ê

I smoked my  mind the night before,

With  (D)cigarettes and (E)songs I'd been  (A)pickin',

But I lit my  first and watched a small kid,

(D)Playin'  with a (E)can that he was (A)kickin',

Then I  walked across the street and caught,

The  (D)Sunday smell of (E)someone fryin'  (A)chicken,

Lord it  (D)took me back to (E)something that,

I  (D)lost somewhere, some(E)how along the  (A)way,

Ê

On a Sunday  mornin' (D)sidewalk,

I'm wishin'  Lord that I was (A)stoned,

'Cause  there's something in a (E)Sunday,

That makes a  body feel (A)alone,

And there's  nothin' short of (D)dyin',

That s half  as lonesome as the (A)sound,

Of the  sleepin' city (E)sidewalk,

And Sunday  mornin' comin' (A)down,

Ê

Ê

Ê

In the park I saw a daddy with  a,

(D)Laughin' little (E)girl that he was (A)swingin',

And I stopped beside a Sunday  school,

And (D)listened to the (E)songs that they were (A)singin',

Then I headed down the  street and somewhere,

(D)Far away a (E)lonely bell was (A)ringin',

And it (D)echoed through the (E)canyon,

Like (D)disappearing (E)dreams of yester(A)day,

Ê

On a Sunday  mornin' (D)sidewalk,

I'm wishin'  Lord that I was (A)stoned,

'Cause  there's something in a (E)Sunday,

That makes a  body feel (A)alone,

And there's  nothin' short of (D)dyin',

That s half  as lonesome as the (A)sound,

Of the  sleepin' city (E)sidewalk,

And Sunday  mornin' comin' (A)down.

They got you in the palm of their greasy hands
          D     A
Go on and lie

If it gets you through the night


Check out Casanova Joe, one more number for his book
He stepped to every entire prom queen sheÂ’s sendinÂ’ him that look
He promises her all kinds of diamonds, hHe promised her brand new clothes
He'd give her the world on a silver dollar but he blew it all up his nose

Chorus

 The Beast In Me

 C
 
              C 
 The beast in me
 F              G                C 
 Is caged by frail and fragile bars
 F           G  
 Restless by day
          C             Bb             D7 
 And by night rants and rages at the stars
 F        G            C 
 God help the beast in me

 The beast in me
 Has had to learn to live with pain
 And how to shelter from the rain
 And in the twinkling of an eye
 Might have to be restrained
 God help the beast in me

 E                           
 Sometimes it tries to kid me

Carl Perkins

          A
Well, I'm sitting here wondering would a matchbox hold my clothes?
          D
Yeah, I'm sitting here wondering would a matchbox hold my clothes?
  E                                           A
I ain't got n matches but I got a long way to go.

Well, I'm an old poor boy and I'm a long, long way from home
I'm an old poor boy and I'm a long, long way from home
Guess I'll never be happy; everything I do is wrong.

Let me be your little dog 'til your big dog come.
Let me be your little dog 'til your big dog come.
When your big dog gets here, show him what this little puppy done

Johnny Cash – What Is Truth Chords


What is Truth 
Written By: Johnny Cash 
Recorded: 1970 Nashville, Tennessee 
 
G 
The old man turned off the radio 
       C 
Said: "Where did all the old songs go? 
G7 
Kids sure play funny music these days! 
D7 
And they play it in the strangest ways 
G 
Everything seems so loud and wild 
         C 
It was peaceful back when I was a child." 
G7 
Well, man, could it be the girls and boys 
D7 
Are tryin' to be heard above your noise 
G 
And the lonely voice of youth cries: 
 C             G 
"What is truth?" 
 
A little boy of three sittin' on the floor 
Looked up and said, " Daddy, what is war?" 
"Son that's when people fight and die." 
The little boy of three says,"Daddy, why?" 
A young man of seventeen in Sunday school 
Is being taught the golden rule 
By the time another years gone around  
It may be his turn to lay his own life down! 
Can you blame the voice of youth for asking: 
"What is truth?" 
 
A young man sittin' on the witness stand 
The man with a book says, "Raise your hand! 
Repeat after me, I solemnly swear" 
The judge looked down at his long hair 
And although the young man solemnly swore 
Nobody seemed to hear anymore 
And it really didn't matter if the truth was there 
It was the cut of his clothes and the length of his hair! 
And the lonely voice of youth cries: 
"What is truth?" 
 
A young girl dancin' to the latest beat 
Has found new ways to move her feet 
A young man standin' in the city square 
Is tryin' to tell somebody that he cares 
"Yeah, the ones that your callin' wild 
Are gonna be the leaders in a little while 
This old world is breakin' to a new born day 
And I solemnly swear that it will be their way! 
You'd help that voice of youth find: 
'What is truth'!" 
 
And the lonely voice of youth cries: 
(Spoken)"What is truth?"

The truth I knew when I was eight.
My dad swam the length of Spirit Lake.
It must have been a million miles.
ThisI knew was true.
My mother sang while hangin' clothes.
Her notes weren't perfect heaven knows.
But heaven opened anyway.
And this I knew was true.

Chorus: Leaves don't drop they just let go,
And make a place for seeds to grow.
Every season brings a change,
A seed is what a tree contains,
To die and live is life's refrain.
I left her with some groceries,
Said, "Check the oil and call me please.”
She said " Hey, ma I'll be just fine."
This I knew was true.

Chorus:

I've traveled through my history,
From certainty to mystery.
God speaks in rhyme in paradox.
This I know is true.
