Died A Rounder At Twenty-One Recorded by Dale Evans Written by Jimmie Skinner
C He drank whiskey for his liver
Smoked cigarettes for his lungs G7 C He loved the women for his ego F G7 C He died a rounder at twenty-one
F C He wouldn’t work down at the saw mill F C He couldn’t stand that hot sunshine
He had twenty-one years of the real life F G7 C He lived a thousand in that time
One night when the blues had got him
He must have drank three fifths of rum G7 C He got mean as hell when I told him F G7 C He’d wouldn’t live past twenty-one
F C And if a man ever hit me harder F C Well I don’t know where or when
He picked me up off that old bar floor F G7 C He said I’d sure like to be your friend
One night I saw him talkin’
To an old man at the bar G7 C He said dad you know I love you F G7 C I just don’t like where you are
F C Well tell momma to turn my lights on F C And turn down my feather bed
I’ll be twenty-one tomorrow F G7 C But tomorrow he was dead
It’s twenty-one miles to that graveyard
Where twenty-one roses read G7 C They told the story of that rounder F G7 C Who at twenty-one he was dead
F G7 C He died a rounder at twenty-one
