I Got Mine
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
