Lynyrd Skynyrd - The Ballad Of Curtis Lowe





Intro - E - D - E



(verse 1)
        E                        B       
Well, I used to wake the mornin before the rooster crowed,
E                             A               F#
Searchin for soda bottles to get myself some dough,
E                           B       
Run em down to the corner, down to the country store,
A                                                     E
 Cash em in, and give my money to a man named Curtis Loew,



(verse 2)
E              B              A           E
Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair,
E                      B           A          E 
When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care,
E                     B              A                  E 
He used to own an old Dobro, used to play it across his knee,
E                  B         A                E
I give old Curt my money, he play all day for me,



(chorus)
  A                     E            E7 
Play me a song, Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew,
  A                                E           E7
Well, I got your drinkin money, tune up your Dobro.
  A                                E             F#
People said he was useless, them people all were fools,
        E                  D                A               E - D - E
Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues,


(verse 3)
He looked to be sixty, and maybe I was ten,
Mama used to whup me, but I'd go see him again,
I clap my hands, stomp my feets, try to stay in time,
He'd play a song or two, then take another drink of wine,



(chorus)
  A                     E            E7 
Play me a song, Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew,
  A                                E           E7
Well, I got your drinkin money, tune up your Dobro.
  A                                E             F#
People said he was useless, them people all were fools,
        E                  D                A               E - D - E
