Everglades Chords

   
Rick in Macon   Everglades     in key of G


       G                      D
He was born and raised around Jacksonville
  C                       G
A nice young man, not the kind to kill
                          C
But a jealous fight and a flashin' blade
D                          G
Sent him on the run to the Everglades
G              F               G
Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades

         G                      D
Now, the posse went in and they came back out
     C                        G  
They said he'll die and there ain't no doubt
        G                     C 
It's an eye for an eye so the debt is paid
   D                      G
He won't last long in the Everglades
  G         F           G
A man can't live in the Everglades

Chorus:
        C                G
Where a man can hide and never be found
    D                   G
And have no fear of the bayin' hounds
       G                      C
But he better keep movin' and don't stand still
       D                               G
If the skeeters don't get him then the gators will
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/k/kingston_trio/everglades_crd_ver_2.html ]
         G                     D
Now, the years went by and his girl was wed
    C               G
His family gave him up for dead
    G                C
But now and then the natives would say
       D                            G
They'd seen him runnin' through the Everglades
G              F               G
Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades

        G                           D
Now, he never heard the news on the radio
       C                            G
He was deep in the 'glades so he'll never know
    G                         C
His runnin' and hidin' didn't make much sense
         D                    G
For the jury had ruled it was self-defense
G              F               G
Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades

chorus again
        C                G
Where a man can hide and never be found
    D                   G
And have no fear of the bayin' hounds
       G                      C
But he better keep movin' and don't stand still
       D                               G
If the skeeters don't get him then the gators will

Outro:
G              F               G
Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades
G               F                G
Skippin' like a frog through the slimy bog
G                   F              G
Runnin' through the trees from the Everlys

GG  CC DDDD   GG  CC DDDD  G


I have no idea of what "everlys" are.
