Black Sheep Written and recorded by Stonewall Jackson
C F C In a little country village not very far away D7 G7 There lived a rich but aged man whose hair was turning gray C F C He had three sons three only ones both Jack and Tom were sly F C G7 C But Ted was honest as could be he would not tell a lie
F C The brothers tried to ruin Ted before the old man's eyes D7 G7 At last the plot begin its work till Ted was much despised C F C The father then said be gone you're heartless to the core F C G7 C Then the black sheep's words they came just ringing through the door
F C Don't be angry with me dad don't drive me from your door D7 G7 I know that I've been wayward but I won't be anymore C F C Just give me one more chance and put me to the test F C G7 C You'll find the black sheep loves his dad far better than the rest
F C Year by year sped quickly by the father who had now grown old D7 G7 He called to them both Jack and Tom and gave them all his gold C F C I only need a little room a place at your fireside F C G7 C One night on Jack's returning home he brought with him a bride
F C The three began to hate the father more and more each day D7 G7 At last he heard the three declare why the old fool's in our way C F C They then agreed to send him to the poorhouse that was near F C G7 C Then like a flash the black sheep's words came ringing in his ear
F C A wagon drives up to the door it is the poorhouse band D7 G7 The brothers pointed to their dad right there is your man C F C Then a manly form appeared came rushing through the crowd F C G7 C Stop this you brutes the lad replied it shall not be allowed
F C You've took the old man's property and all that he could save D7 G7 You've even sold the little lot containing mother's grave C F C I am his son but not your kin from now till judgment day F C G7 C The father clasped the black sheep's hand and they all heard him say
F C Don't be angry with me son I know I drove you from my door D7 G7 I know that I've been foolish lad I've repented o'er and o'er C F C I should have given you my gold for you have stood the test F C G7 C I found the black sheep loves his dad for better than the rest
