ALONG CAME JONES
written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
performed by the Coasters
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

A / / / D / / / E7 / / /
  A
I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue
He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh:
"If you don't give me the deed to your ranch, I'll saw you all
   in half!"
                    N/C
And then he grabbed her!  (And then)
He tied her up!  (And then)
He turned on the bandsaw!  (And then, and then...)

CHORUS:
                  A
Ah ah!  And then along came Jones
          E
Tall thin Jones
A
Slow-walkin' Jones
D
(Slow-talkin' Jones)
           E           E7    A
Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

Verse 2:
Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack
You should've seen what was goin' on by the time that I got
   back
Down in the old, abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was a-havin' fits
That villain said, "Give me the deed to your ranch or I'll
   blow you all to bits!"
And then he grabbed her!  (And then)
He tied her up!  (And then)
He lit the fuse to the dynamite!  (And then, and then...)

(chorus)
(instrumental, same pattern as chorus)

Verse 3:
I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show
But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same old
   rodeo
Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack
He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch, I'm
   gonna lay you on the railroad tracks!"
And then he grabbed her!  (And then)
He tied her up!  (And then)
Another train started comin'!  (And then, and then...)

(chorus)
(repeat last line of chorus and fade)
