C) And I went down to a n*gger crap game, 
'Twas (F) certainly against my (C) will. 
I lost every doggone nickel I had 
But a (G) greenback dollar bill. 
(C) Forty dollar that laid on the floor 
the n*gger's 's point was (C) nine 
Well, the (F) police they come in there 
And (Am) caught all of 'em 
But (C) I (G) got (C) mine. 

I got mine, let me tell ya 
(F) I got (C) mine. 
I grabbed that money 
Out the back door (G) I went flying 
Well, (C) ever since the big crap game 
I've been (F) livin' on chicken and (C) wine. 
I'm the (F) leader of so (Am) ciety 
Since (C) I (G) got (C) mine. 

I know a barber shop 
It's a way cross town 
Down on Norfolk street 
It's the only place on a Saturday night 
That us gamblers gets to meet 
Some comes for a haircut 
And others come for a scrap 
And when you see me and my buddies up there, man 
We means to shoot some crap 
Hollering: "Seven, eleven, won't you come, come, come!!! 
If you don't seven, eleven them 
You're done, done, done" 
If I see the police before he sees me 
I'm gonna run, run, run 
I'm the leader of society 
Since I got mine 

Well, I went down to my best girl's house 
The hour was just about nine 
I wasn't dressed up like Henry Ford 
But I was feeling just as fine 
I caught her sitting on another man's knee 
And I didn't like that sign 
Well, I told them what I thought about it, boys 
And I got mine 

I got mine, I got mine 
I grabbed my hat and through the window 
I went flying 
I ran as fast as I could run 
But I didn't get there in time 
Because the rascal grabbed a shotgun, Lord 
And I got mine
