Ellis Unit One chords by Steve Earle

Steve Earle Chords

Steve Earle     Ellis Unit One written by Steve Earle

I was fresh out of the service 
It was back in ‘82 
E                         B            A
I raised some Cain when I came back to town 
Meant to be all I could be 
Come home without a clue 
E                B              E
Married Dawn and had to settle down 
So I hired on at the prison 
Guess I always knew I would 
E                    B              A
Just like my dad and both my uncles done 
Worked on every cell block 
Now, things're goin' good 
          E                 B          E
Then they transferred me to Ellis Unit One 
A     B
Swing low 
E     A
Swing low 
              B        E   A  B  E   A  B  E
Swing low and carry me home 
E                                      A
Now, my daddy used to talk about them long nights at the walls 
    E                B                 A
And how they used to strap ‘em in the chair 
E                                  A
The kids down from the college and they'd bring their beer ‘n all 
E                           B                 A
When the lights went out, a cheer rose in the air 
I guess  folks just got too civilized 
Old Sparky's gatherin' dust 
E               B               A
No one wants to touch a smokin' gun 
Ehey got that injection  now
They don't mind as much, I guess 
E               B7         E
Put ‘em down on Ellis Unit One 
A     B
Swing low 
E     A
Swing low 
              B        E  A  B  E   A   B   E 
Swing low and carry me home 
Well, I've seen ‘em fight like lions, boys 
I've seen 'em go like lambs 
E                           B                   A
And I've helped to drag ‘em when they could not stand 
E                                           A
And I've heard their mamas cryin' when they heard that big door slam 
E                      B                E
I've seen the victim's family's holdin' hands 
E                                        A
Last night I dreamed that I woke up with straps across my chest 
E                            B                  A
And something cold and black pullin' through my lungs 
E                                    A
Even Jesus couldn't save me though I know he did his best 
       E              B         E
But he don't live on Ellis Unit One 
A     B
Swing low 
E     A
Swing low 
              B        E
Swing low and carry me home 
A     B
Swing low 
E     A
Swing low 
              B        E
Swing low and carry me home
