    Delia’s Gone

    Johnny Cash

     

    A (hold)     D (hold)

    Delia, oh, Delia

      A (hold)

    Delia all my life

       D
    If I hadn't have shot poor Delia

              B7                   E

    I'd-a had her for my wife

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    A                   D
    I went up to Memphis

           A                     A7
    And I met Delia there

     D              

    Found her in her parlor

              B7               E
    And I tied to her chair

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

                  A                    D
    She was low down and trifling

    A                                      A7
    And she was cold and mean

    D                                        
    Kind of evil make me want to

    B7                      E

    Grab my sub machine

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

    A                  D
    First time I shot her

         A                      A7

    I shot her in the side

      D          
    Hard to watch her suffer

                        B7                     E
    But with the second shot she died
                A      D             A        E        A

    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

           A            D
    But jailer, oh, jailer

     A                       A7

    Jailer, I can't sleep

               D

    'Cause all around my bedside

                     B7                   E
    I hear the patter of Delia's feet

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

        A                       D
    So if you woman's devilish

    A                        A7
    You can let her run

         D
    Or you can bring her down and do her like

    B7              E

    Delia got done

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone

                A      D             A        E        A
    Delia's gone, one more round Delia's gone
