The Carter Boys
Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall

C F C
The Carter boys were born one and after another
G7 C
In a little ol' country place
F C
I was the last and the death of my mother
G7 C
And I know it was a pretty bad trait

F C
We'd get to drinking I'd do the singing
G7 C
And they taught me to chase girls and cuss
F C
We played poker I'd do the dealing
G7 C
I was the only one we could trust

F G7 C
And there were six of us all together
F G7 C
And that's how we stood all the time
F G7 C
Six of us all together
F G7 C
The Carter boys were brothers of mine

F C
We had an ol' car that we kept tied together
G7 C
With pieces of baling wire and hope
F C
Well they knew when we got there and they knew when we left
G7 C
They could tell by the noise and the smoke

F C
Anytime the sheriff had nothing to do
G7 C
He'd get out and chase us around
F C
The old women prayed the old men laughed
G7 C
And the middle aged people all frowned

Repeat #3

F C
Daddy was a preacher and the Lord knows he tried
G7 C
Gave us everything he could afford
F C
We lost a lotta battles but daddy always said

G7 C
The only thing we feared was the Lord

F C
Well as I look back through the long lean years
G7 C
I wonder how we ever survived
F C
All of that hard work all of those women
G7 C
And all of those pistols and knives

Repeat #3 x2
