Intro:    E

Verse 1:  E                   A                E             A
          I spent my last two birthdays in the Travis County Jail
          E             A                 E                     B7
          Tomorrow I go up for life but I should go straight to hell
          B7                                 A                 E
          Hell's got no more room for me and it's got no more time
          A               B7            E
          I should be confessin' all my crimes

          E                 A              E            A
          Four years ago my debt was piled high upon my mind
          E               A             E                B7
          And I devised a plan to rob a bank just to survive
          Oh, but when the gunsmoke cleared                                  
              A               E
          I saw two bodies on the ground
          A              B7           E
          Thirteen hours later I was found

Chorus:              B                       A             E
           Don't you feel any sorrow for the man that I've been
          'Cause in the waking of tomorrow                                   
               A               E
           They will find me full of sin
                 A        E               B           E
           I got news for you, I ain't as bad as they say
                 A        E
           I got news for you it looks like,
           B               A         E
           That just don't matter today

Instru:    E  A  E  B7  E

Verse 2:   E                         A            E         A
           Well the verdict came and right away, "Guilty Indeed"
           E       A              B7
           A 99 to life is what I heard that jury

           Well, they thought they might impress upon me
           A                 E
           Crime it does not pay
           A               B7         E
           I ain't one for listenin' today
           E                      A         E                 A
           As the years go by and by upon a shadowed ground I walk
           E                  A            E                  B7
           The people and the places of my past have now been lost
                                             A                E
           The man that I've been is not the man I'd hoped to be
               A                B7               E
           Now it's too late to find the good in me

Chorus:    (2X)

Ending:    E              B             A       E
           Ah, looks like it just don't matter today

Outro:     E  A  E

-----------------            Note: To get the same effect in the
      Chords                       intro as Cory does, you must
-----------------                  apply hammer-ons and pull-offs on
   E   A   B7   B                  G string of E chord to alternate
E  0   X    X   5                  between E and Em. Also in Chorus
A  2   0    2   7                  you can use all Barre chords in
D  2   2    1   7                  addition to using the B barre
G  1   2    2   6                  chord. It will also work just
B  0   2    0   5                  playing all chords open.
e  0   0    2   5
