Dm                    G                  Dm  
I was standin' by the road in Black Jack County.
Dm                   C       x      A
Not knowing that the Sheriff paid a bounty,
Dm                  C             G     xx       A
For men like me who didn't have a penny to their name.
Dm                   G            Dm        xxxA    Dm             
He locked my legs in 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chain.

Dm            G                 Dm
All we had to eat was bread and water,
Dm                 C         x    A
Everyday we had to build his road a mile and a quarter,
Dm                       C                  G         xx      A
A black snake whip would sting our backs if some poor fool complained,  
Dm                                 G            Dm        xxxA    Dm 
But we couldn't fight back wearing 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chain.

(Break)

Dm                 G             Dm
Then one night the Sheriff lay a sleepin',
Dm              C         x      A
We all gathered round him slowly creepin',
Dm             C              G            xx        A            
Heaven help me to forget that night in the cold cold rain
Dm                                G            Dm       xxxA     Dm
When we beat him to death wearing 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chain

Dm                  G               Dm
The wounds have all healed and I am thankful,
Dm                           C         x     A
And there's nothing left but scars around my ankle.
Dm                 C             G    xx      A
But best of all no man will ever be a slave again,
Dm                        G            Dm        xxxA    Dm
To a black snake whip and 35 pounds of Black Jack County Chain.


Dm                 C             G    xx      A        Dm  G  Dm  xxxA  Dm  
But best of all no man will ever be a slave again,

Best part of playing guitar is adding your own flavor to a song. 
Play around with it.  If it sounds good to you... PLAY IT!
