Three Sheets to the Wind
by Mark David Manders
from the album "Tales from the Couch Circuit"
Transcribed by Thomas Faulkenberry

Dm                                 F
Now Henry slapped his mules as he set 'em free to graze
          C                             G
Took the rag out of his pocket and he wiped the sweat away
    Dm                                      F
He glanced back toward the house, saw his daughter dressed in white
          C                       G                 Dm
Hangin' laundry on the line that ran alongside the pen
G                   Dm
Three sheets to the wind

Now the year was '71, Kansas was alive
Reconstruction was the order for those who would abide
But Henry was a black man, there were those where he went
Who weren't afraid to tell him what that proclamation meant to them
Three sheets to the wind

F                            C
Beware of the shadows that fall before the dawn
      G                           Dm
Don't ever trust a man 'less you know where he comes from
F                        C
Many are the ladies who can recall the name
      G                             Dm
Of a fool that lost his life over things he could not change

Now Billy poured a drink, and he stared down at his cards
The night was getting late, and his thoughts were growing dark
He said "Boys, I think its time we made our presence known
"Let's take a little ride, see if good old Henry's home," and he grinned
Three sheets to the wind

They met behind the barn over at Billy's place
Billy had a rope and a hood to cover his face
And the creaking of the leather, and the hooves against the ground
Was all that could be heard as they made their way around the bend
Three sheets to the wind

(repeat chorus)

Billy's wife had a feeling that led her to the sheriff's door
She had tears in her eyes and trouble to report
She saw Billy's horse that morning still saddled by the gate
The last she heard of Billy, he was out drinking late with friends
Three sheets to the wind

Well the barkeep tipped the sheriff about Billy and his plans
Sheriff lit out for Henry's to see what became of him
But Henry had slipped away and all he'd left there at the scene
Was three bodies swayin' to the ropes tied beneath their chins
Three sheets to the wind

(repeat chorus)
