Notes:- Thanks Tim - everyone should email him (and me) with your thoughts - I felt the  
changes were a little later than indicated, but right.  
Does anyone think there should be another chord somewhere in the first and second line  
of the verse? If there is its probably an add on to the existing chord... Any thoughts?  
I've been drinkin' muddy water and it tastes like turpintine 
I've been leavin' muddy footprints up and down the Morgan Line 
Am                            C              D            Em      
Crows are cryin' all around me in a sky where the sun refuse to shine 
I've been takin' scraps from backdoor I've been hidin' in the cane 
I've been fightin' over morsels and I've been slinkin' back again 
Am                            C             D               Em         
I've been buildin' up a reputation on the levy all across the plain 
     G           D                              Am                     Em 
No I won't be your dog, Your low ridin' dog, Anymore. 
Now the mangro sun is sinkin' and the moon is bloody red 
Every gun is clean and loaded lyin' by a feather bed 
Am                       C                D          Em      
Far and wide go my description and the price is risin' on my head 
Chorus - Piano - Guitar Solo 
I've been drinkin' muddy water I've been keepin' way down low 
All I hear is my own breathin' all I see is a distant glow 
Am                   C                           D                         Em 
All I have is tearin' me up wearin' me down just won't let me go
