Cash on the Barrelhead
recorded by the Louvin Brothers
written by
Charlie Louvin and Ira Louvin

C
Got in a little trouble at the county seat
G7 C
Lord they put me in the jailhouse for loafing on the street

When the judge heard the verdict I was a guilty man
G7 C
He said forty five dollars or thirty days in the can

C7 F C
That'll be cash on the barrelhead son
G7 C
You can make your choice you're twenty one
C7 F C
No money down no credit plan
G7 C
No time to chase you cause I'm a busy man


Found a telephone number on a laundry slip
G7 C
I had a good hearted jailer with a six gun hip

He let me call long distance she said number please
G7 C
And no sooner than I told her she shouted out at me

C7 F C
That'll be cash on the barrelhead son
G7 C
Not part not half but the entire sum
C7 F C
No money down no credit plan
G7 C
Cause a little bird tells me you're a traveling man


Thirty days in the jailhouse four days on the road
G7 C
I was feeling mighty hungry my feet a heavy load

Saw a greyhound coming stuck up my thumb
G7 C
Just as I was being seated the driver caught my arm

C7 F C
That'll be cash on the barrelhead son
G7 C
This old grey dog is paid to run
C7 F C
When the engine stops the wheels won't roll
G7 C
Give me cash on the barrelhead I'll take you down the road
