Shoot Low Sheriff
By John Anderson
Written By Monroe Fields and Carmol Taylor

Well you better shoot low sheriff cause they might be crawlin'
Got a big load of booze that they'll soon be a-haulin
They're running every night when the whippoorwill is callin'
G D7 G
So shoot low sheriff cause they might be crawlin'

Old Uncle Bill's got a still on a hill
D7 G
He never worked a day and I guess he never will

He runs shine liquor that he sells at the law
D7 G
It made ma mad and she called the law

Repeat #1

Well ma put the sheriff on Uncle Bill's trail
D7 G
She said catch that sock and throw him in jail

He run out and left his wife and the little kids squallin'
D7 G
So shoot low sheriff cause they might be crawlin'

Repeat #1

Uncle Bill held the bottle 'tween his finger and thumb
D7 G
He said if I leave any you can have some

Make him reach into his pocket for his last thin dime
D7 G
And wear summer britches in the cold winter time

Repeat #1 x2
