Tom: A
Capo 3rd Fret 
 
(In a moderate country half-time) 
 
A                           D             A
Ev'ryone considered him the coward of the county. 
                                                     E
He'd never stood one single time to prove the county wrong. 
    A                         D                     A
His mama named him Tommy, the folks just called him yellow, 
                                       E             A
but something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong. 
 
 
A                                  D             A
He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison. 
                                                E
I looked after Tommy 'cause he was my brother's son. 
  A                               D               A
I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy: 
                           E             A
"Son, my life is over, but yours is just begun. 
 
 
A                       D                  A
Promise me, son, not to do the things I've done. 
D              A              E
Walk away from trouble if you can. 
A                                D              A
It won't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek. 
                  D              E
I hope you're old enough to understand: 
     E7                              A
Son, you don't have to fight to be a man." 
 
(Slide capo to 4th fret) 
 
 
 
A                                D                A
There's someone for ev'ryone and Tommy's love was Becky. 
                                             E
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man. 
    A                            D                A
One day while he was workin' the Gatlin boys came callin'. 
                           E (Spoken)  A
They took turns at Becky.... There was three of them! 
 
 
A                            D             A
Tommy opened up the door and saw his Becky cryin'. 
                                                          E
The torn dress, the shattered look was more than he could stand. 
   A                                    D                A
He reached above the fireplace and took down his daddy's picture. 
                                          E                 A
As his tears fell on his daddy's face, he heard these words again: 
 
 
A                       D                  A
"Promise me, son, not to do the things I've done. 
D              A              E
Walk away from trouble if you can. 
A                                D              A
It won't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek. 
                  D              E
I hope you're old enough to understand: 
     E7                              A
Son, you don't have to fight to be a man." 
 
(Slide capo to 5th fret) 
 
 
A                                           D               A
The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the barroom. 
                                                  E
One of them got up and met him halfway 'cross the floor. 
     A                                   D                  A
When Tommy turned around they said, "Hey look! ol' yellow's leavin'." 
(Whole line spoken)                  E                 A
But you coulda heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped and blocked the door. 
 
 
A                            D             A
Twenty years of crawlin' was bottled up inside him. 
                                                   E
He wasn't holdin' nothin' back; he let 'em have it all. 
     A                            D              A
When Tommy left the barroom not a Gatlin boy was standin'. 
                                       E                    A
He said, "This one's for Becky," as he watched the last one fall. 
(Spoken) 
And I heard him say, 
 
 
A                            D                 A
"I promised you, Dad, not to do the things you done. 
                                E
I walk away from trouble when I can. 
    A                                     D              A
Now please don't think I'm weak, I didn't turn the other cheek, 
                 D             E
and Papa, I sure hope you understand: 
    E7                                  A
Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man." 
 
 
A                           D             (No chords)    A
Ev'ryone considered him the coward of the county.
