                                       E
    But now you know Iím long long gone
                                  E/Eadd9/E/E6/E
    like a turkey through the corn
                         E... (= intro riff)

    with the long coat on

 

 

                        E
Oh, rattler, oh, rattler       (not sure)
                  B7
is the water calm
                    B7
big wig big branches           (not sure)
                      E (bass and drums only)
and mocking with the Lord
                         E... (= intro riff)

but now you know Iím gone

 


Ainít got nobody
no worrisome kid
nobody but myself
to be bothered with
but now you know Iím long

 

 

instrumental: E A E B A E

 

 

If you know you couldnít make it
youíre ought to stay at home

youíve got trips for your grandma
down on grandpaís farm


                          E/Eadd9/E/E6/E (2x)
    But now you know Iím long long gone
                               E/Eadd9/E/E6/E (1x)
    like a turkey through the corn
                      E... (= intro riff)

        get it on, get it on

 

 

instrumental: E A E B A E

 

 

Oh, look at over yonder
what I see
the good kind captain
coming after me

 

 

    But now you know Iím long long gone
    like a turkey through the corn
    with the long coat on

 

 

instrumental: E A E B A E
