Shifting Gears
By Cooder Graw

Capo 2

A
Sheriff drove out to the edge of the county
                                       D
Kicked a man out and turned around and he
D                      A
Drove slowly back into town
           E                                    A
Just don't hurt nobody, or you'll be going down
A
Earn respect quick with a gun in your pocket
A                                          
Everybody shut up and you'd better watch it
D                                               A
If you're out doing things everyone knows ain't right
         E                                        A
Find yourself in the highway in the middle of the night


Chorus 1:
                   F#m G          A           
Find yourself down 152 East out of town
        F#m        G              A           
You can scream and no one hears a sound
             Bm                        D                 E     
Yea, and the sheriff and his boys know every road out of here
                           G          D                  A
And they'll kick you right out in the middle of shifting gears


Lived in the courthouse, kept an eye on things
Better stay quiet and you'd better not sing
Unless you can keep a tune in your head
Just don't do nothing stupid or you might end up dead
Leather gloves in the back of his pants
Dont backtalk or you're gonna dance
Around an 8-by-12 steel and cement cell
And if you hurt a woman, you'll find yourself in Hell

Chorus 2:
Hell's down 152 East out of town
You can scream and no one hears a sound
Yea, and the sheriff and his boys know every road out of here
And they'll kick you right out in the middle of shifting gears
Yeah they'll kick you right out in the middle of shifting gears


He'll see to it that your trip is short
Mind your manners and you ain't got to worry
It's a well known secret the sheriff runs a tight town
Just don't hurt nobody or you'll be goin' down
Sheriff drove out to the edge of the county
Kicked a man out and he turned around and he
Watched his mirror as he drove into town
Just don't hurt nobody or you'll be goin' down

Chorus 3:
Dinf yourself down 152 East out of town
You can scream and no one hears a sound
Yea, and the sheriff and his boys know every road out of here
And they'll kick you right out in the middle of shifting gears
