       EVERGLADES    Kingston Trio

Intro chords D D G G A A A  D D G G A A A  D
  (D)                             A
1.)He was born and raised around Jacksonville  
2.)Now the possee went in and they came back out
3.)Now the years went by and his girl was wed
4.)Now he never heard the news on the radio

   G                      D
A nice young man not the kind to kill
They said he'll die and there ain't no doubt
His family gave him up for dead
He's deep in the glades so he'll never know

        D                   G
But a jealous fight and a flashing blade
It's an eye for an eye so the debt is paid
But now and then the natives would say
His runnin' and hidin' didn't make much sense
A7                           D
Sent him on the run to the Everglades
He won't last long in the Everglades
They'd seen him running thru the Everglades
"Cause the jury had ruled it was self defense.
D              Am7           D
Runnin' like a dog thru the Everglades
A man can't live in the Everglades       go to chorus
Runnin' like a dog thru the Everglades
Runnin' like a dog thru the Everglades   go to chorus, then ending

D              Am7            D          play intro and end
Runnin' like a dog thru the Everglades
Skippin' like a frog thru the slimy bog
Runnin" thru the trees from the Everlys.

D       G                  Bm
Where a man can hide and never be found
     A                    D
And have no fear of the bayin' hound
D                                G
But he better keep a movin' and don't stand still
         A                                D        play intro
If the skeeters don't get him then the gaters will
