Understand Your Man
written and recorded by Johnny Cash
C                           Am
Don't call my name out your window I'm leaving
F                    G7
I won't even turn my head
C                            Am
Don't send your kin folks to give me no talking
D7                  G7
I'll be gone like I said
You'd say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut 'til I'm gone
C                               Am
Don't give me that old familiar crying cussing moan
F    G7         C                      Am
Understand your man  I'm tired of your badmouthing
F    G7         C
Understand your man
You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army
F                           G7
And everything else I leave behind
C                              Am
I ain't taking nothing that'll slow down my traveling
D7                      G7
While I'm untangling my mind
I ain't gonna repeat what I said anymore
While I'm breathing air that ain't been breathed before
C                         Am
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
F                G7         C       Am
Then you'll understand your man  meditate on it
F    G7         C               Am
Understand your man you hear me talking
F    G7         C
Understand your man remember what I told ya
F    G7         C
Understand your man
