Tennessee Flat Top 
By Johnny Cash
 
 C                                           G7 
In a little cabaret in a South Texas border town
                                                      C 
Sat a boy and his guitar and the people came from all around
 G7          C                    G7 
And all the girls  from there to Austin
                                                  C 
Were slipping way from home and putting jewelry in hock
 G7          C               G7 
To take the trip  to go and listen
                                                                C 
To the little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F 
And he would play
 
 C                                                             G7    
Well he couldn't ride or wrangle and he never cared to make a dime
                                                  C 
But give him his guitar and he'd be happy all the time
 G7          C                   G7 
And all the girls  from nine to ninety
                                                          C 
We're snapping fingers tapping toes and begging him don't stop
 G7         C             G7 
And hypnotized  and fascinated
                                                               C 
By the little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F 
And he would play
 
                                                 G7 
Then one day he was gone and no one ever saw him around
                                                          C 
He vanished like the breeze they forgot him in the little town
 G7          C                          G7 
But all the girls  still dreamed about him
                                                 C 
And hung around the cabaret until the doors were locked
 G7           C               G7 
And then one day  on the Hit Parade
                                                              C  
Was a little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F 
And he would play
