Key: G
     G               D      Em 
They took my life on August 31 
    G                D               Em  
For all the bad they said that I had done 
G          D                 
One man he pulled the switch 
         Am                       
While my family watched my fingers twitch 
          G                 D                Am 
When they covered my face I knew my time had come 
          G                 D                Em 
When they covered my face I knew my time had come 

D                     Em 
My name is Johnny Ray Dupree 
D                               Em 
One big brother two sisters and me 
Am                      C                            G 
We were brought up just living to be free 
                       D                          Am 
Now she took that from me 
        C                         G 
Now she took that from me 
           D          Em 
My name is Johnny Ray Dupree 

They shaved my leg about an hour ago 
I imagine they did so to help with all the flow 
My last supper wouldn't much  
Some banana pudding and a sack of nuts 
The preacher came in and we prayed a prayer real low 
That preacher and me we prayed a prayer real low 

Chorus 

C                            D 
My lawyer said that I?d been drinking on that night 
         Am                               C 
Couldn?t possibly have known that gun was loaded but he lied 
G                                      D 
It?s true that there was whiskey but I loaded it myself 
        Am                      C 
Cause I knew he was coming over soon as I had left 
      D                            Am 
And I put it in the dresser drawer right beside the door 
           C                              Em 
So I could have it in my hands before his feet had hit the floor 
     G                            D 
They never heard me come in and I grabbed it like I planned 
        Am                             C 
A lucky break that it was easier while they were still in bed 
        G                              D                           Am         
A lucky break that it was easier while they were still in bed? 

Am      C       G       D 
Am      C       G       Em?
