lyrics

(Reid Cain 2011)
Intro [Em-D]
[D] They buried him down near [G] Southwood road last [D] week
Near the old oak tree that [G] hangs over Southwood [D] Creek
now [C] don't go crying for Mrs. [Em] Jackson's loss
She [C] put him under [Em] neath that cross
for [C] all the hard times, the [G] black eyes, and a broken [D] heart
[G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part [D7]

They had a nice little place on the edge of town
said they were planning to raise some kids and settle down
but things were getting bad behind closed doors
and what finally made her snap no one really knows
some say the hard times, the black eyes and a broken heart
[G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part

Bridge
Am-G-Em-G...
Em-D

[D] They buried him down near [G] Southwood road last [D] week
Near the old oak tree that [G] hangs over Southwood [D] Creek
if you want to hear more of Mrs. Jackson's tale
you can go find her there at the old county jail
doing hard time free of black eyes and a broken heart
[G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part
