 G                           C             G
Everyone considered him the coward of the county 
 G                                                   D7
He never stood one single time to prove the county wrong 
 G                            C                     G
His mama named him Tommy but folks just called him yellow 
  G                                  D7            G
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong 
 
   G                             C                 G
He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison 
   G                                             D7
I looked after Tommy cause he was my brother's son 
   G                               C               G
I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy 
   G                      D7            G
Son my life is over but yours is just begun  
 
  G                     C                  G
Promise me son not to do the things I've done 
 C              G              D7
Walk away from trouble if you can 
     G                                C              G
Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek 
  G                 C            D7
I hope you're old enough to understand 
 C                 D7            G
You don't have to fight to be a man 
 
 G                               C                G
There's someone for everyone and Tommy's love was Becky 
                                              D7
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man 
 G                                 C                G
One day while he was working  the Gatlin Boys came calling 
  G                         D7                  G
They took turns at Becky  there were three of them 
 
  G                            C             G
Tommy opened up the door and saw his Becky crying 
                                                          D7
The torn dress the shattered look was more than he could stand 
    G                               C                     G
He reached above the fireplace and took down his daddy's picture 
  G                                        D7                G
As his tears fell on his daddy's face he heard these words again 
 
   G                    C                  G
Promise me son not to do the things I've done 
 C              G              D7
Walk away from trouble if you can 
     G                                C              G
Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek 
  G                 C            D7
I hope you're old enough to understand 
 C                 D7            G
You don't have to fight to be a man 
 
   G                                          C               G
The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the barroom  
  G                                               D7
One of the got up and hit him halfway cross the floor 
 G                                  C                 G
Tommy turned around they said  hey look  ole Yellow's leaving 
   G                                   D7          
But you coulda heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped 
                G
and locked the door 
  
   G                           C                 G
Twenty years of crawling was bottled up inside him 
  G                                                 D7
He wasn't holding nothing back  he let 'em have it all 
      G                            C              G
When Tommy left the barroom not a Gatlin boy was standing 
  G                                   D7                   G
He said this one's for Becky  as he watched the last one fall 
  G
And I heard him say 
  
 G                          C                    G
I promised you Dad not to do the things you've done 
      C              G            D7
I'll walk away from trouble if I can 
     G                                      C              G
Now Please don't think I'm weak I couldn't turn the other cheek 
   G                   D7
Papa I sure hope you understand 
     C               D7                  G
Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man 
  
  G                           C             G
Everyone considered him the coward of the county
