Copperhead Road
by Jason Boland
Live at the Wormy Dog

Written by: Earle

      D
Well, my name's John Lee Pettimore,
Same as my daddy and his daddy's before.
You hardly ever saw grandaddy down here
He'd only come to town about twice a year
Buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line.
                                      D7
Everybody knew that he made moonshine.
         G
Now the revenue man wanted granddaddy bad.
 D   
Headed up the holler with everything he had.
 G     
Before my time, but I've been told.
     D
You never come back from Copperhead Road.

      D
Granddaddy ran whiskey in a big black Dodge
Bought it at an auction at the Mason's Lodge
Had Payne County Sheriff painted on the side
Everybody knew that he made moonshie
Well, him and my uncle tore that engine down
                                     D7
I still remember that rumbling sound
          G
Then the sheriff came around in the middle of the night
 D 
Heard mama crying that something wasn't right
        G
He was headed down to Knoxville with the weekly load
           D                                        D(d,u,d,u,d) 4x
You could smell the whisky burning down Copperhead Road.

        D
I volunteered for the army on my birthday
They draft the white trash first, round hear anyway
I done two tours of duty in Viet Nam
I came home with a brand new plan
I'd take the seed from Columbia and Mexico
                                                D7
I'd plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road
        G
Now the D.E.A.'s got a chopper in the air
   D
I wake up screamin, like I'm back over there
    G
I learned a thing or two from Charlie don't you know.
      D                                 D(d,u,d,u,d) 4x
You better stay away from Copperhead Road.

**I like to play this in drop D tuning and if you do that, it's best
to play the G like the second chording.

enjoy :)

There's no d7 in this song dude, all regular chords.
Also, he uses a power chord form of D after the first verse
or at least he does when he uses an electric guitar.

"... sheriff painted on the side" THE NEXT LINE SHOULD BE
"Just shot a coat of primer never looked inside" INSTEAD OF the repeated line "everybody knew he made..."
