How To Play

 
INTRO
D   D D D
 
VERSE
         D                                 G                D
One and all have heard the stories and eyewitness had been sworn
         D                                       A
About a man born in Hard Burly back in June of '29
         D                                 G          D
Must've got that Martin Meylin muzzle the day he was born
                D
Things he could do with that rifle
 
          D                           A                 D
Blow the balls off a bat, reload and shoot it one more time
 
 
VERSE
        D                        G           D
Had an monster of a mule, was a mighty fine steed
                     D                                    A
Sham, and Sam, that tomahawk, and that Flintlocks all he need
 D                                    G             D
Finding food and finding trouble and always takin' heed
                                  A            D
And any man that crossed him was surely gonna bleed
 
          D                               A                D
And he'd stretch you up and burn you for callin' him half breed
 
 
CHORUS
          G                            D
Left the varnish off his words, feared no beast nor man
        D                                                  A
Didn't wanna end up in his debt 'cause it'd damn sure get paid
        D                              G      D
He was harder than the nails hammered Jesus' hands
 
            D
He was the one they called Dood
 D                             A       D
Son of a mountain miner and a Shawnee maiden
 
D  D  D D D
 
 
VERSE
 D                        G            D
Wore a size 17 ring, had hands like a bear
    D                                          A
And if he got 'em on ya, he's takin' that top hair
                 D                                 G            D
His Grandfather taught him how to hunt and how to live off the land
 D                              A               D
Taught him how to take a scalp when you kill a man
 
          D                           G                D
He was a deadly warrin' daddy with a gun gleam in his eye
         D                                           A
Till he found him a good woman that calmed down the rage
    D                                   G                   D
He built a home from the land with the hands the good Lord gave him
         D
And ol' Dood got his own food
 
 D                                   A            D
Had no need for the script that ol' coal company paid
 
 
CHORUS
          G                            D
Left the varnish off his words, feared no beast nor man
                                                   A
And if either came upon him, they'd damn sure get slayed
        D                              G      D
He was harder than the nails hammered Jesus' hands
                            D
He was the one they called Dood
 
 D                             A       D
Son of a mountain miner and a Shawnee maiden
 D                              D   A         D    D D D
Son of a mountain miner and a Shaaaaaaaawnee maiden
