A Girl Named Johnny Cash (Martin Mull) INTRO: KICK OFF with FOLSUM PRISON BLUES (da da da dah dah dah da-da-da dah). [G#] Started out in Tennessee in 1944 When the [C#] doctor hollered; ""it's a girl"" My father hit the floor Then he [G#] hit the bottle And he signed his name And he drove off in the NASH And [Eb] when that sun came up again He'd named me JOHNNY [G#] CASH. UHH! [F#] UHH! [F#] So at 22 I left my home To Nashville I did go To [B] try to land me a little job Had to earn myself some dough I was [F#] workin' in a diner In a hairnet servin' hash And [C#] on my little apron Was embroidered JOHNNY [F#] CASH. UHH! [E] UHH! [E] I coulda had my pick of men If I'd been named LUCILLE BUt [A] when they saw my uniform They just laughed and ate their meals So [E] I just drink my coffee black In back behind the trash And [B] curse that lousy drunkard Who had named me JOHNNY [E] CASH. And I walked the streets of Nashville I was feelin' low and lost Thought I'd go and change my name No matter what it cost I stood in line behind a man Who turned and in a flash He said; ""My name is Sue"" And I said; ""Great, I'm Johnny Cash."" UHH! [F#] UHH! Now me and Sue is married With a little boy and girl The boy was christened Jessica And the girl was christened Earl And when my Sue comes home from work It's up the stairs we dash 'Cause I love to hear my little Susie say; ""I love you - JOHNNY CASH.""
