Merle And Me Written and recorded by David Allan Coe
F C Back in 1953 we stole a car old Merle and me G7 F C Never thinking we'd be put in jail F C G7 You might say that we were green I was barely seventeen F C When they put those bars between old Merle and me
F C G7 Late one night we hit the wall twenty feet we had to fall F C G7 C To the ground where we could crawl into the weeds F C G7 Waiting through that shotgun blast never thinking we could last F C We sure had to grow up fast old Merle and me
F C We were young and crazy then it was easy to pretend G7 F C Acting like we'd never been in reform school F C Looking danger in the eyes walking with our heads held high G7 F C We were not afraid to die old Merle and me
F C We were living by the gun never caring what we'd done G7 F C Swearing it was all just fun and games you know F C G7 We would die and go to hell before we broke our vow to tell F C How we escaped that prison cell old Merle and me
F C How was Merle or me to know we would end up on death row G7 F C Waiting for our turn in the electric chair F C Shot down in a grocery store we got busted at the door G7 F C Praying wasn't easy for old Merle and me
