Coward Of The County by Kenny Rogers (original lyric)



Everyone considered him the coward of the county
He'd never stood one single time to prove the county wrong
His mama called him Tommy, the folks just called him yellow
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong

He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison
I took care Tommy cause he was my brother's son
I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy
Son my life is over but yours has just begun

Promise me son not to do the things I've done
Walk away from trouble if you can
Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek
I hope you're old enough to understand
Son you don't have to fight to be a man

There's someone for everyone and Tommy's love was Becky
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man
One day while he was working the Gatlin boys came calling
They took turns at Becky there was three of them

Tommy opened up the door and saw his Becky cryin'
The torn dress the shattered look was more than he could stand
He reached above the fireplace took down his daddy's picture
As his tears fell on his daddy's face he heard these words again

Promise me son not to do the things I've done
Walk away from trouble if you can
Now it don't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek
I hope you're old enough to understand
Son you don't have to fight to be a man

The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the barroom
One of them got up and met him halfway across the floor
When Tommy turned around they said Hey look ol' yellow's leavin'
But you could'a heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped and locked the door

Twenty years of crawlin' was bottled up inside him
He wasn't holdin' nothin' back he let 'em have it all
When Tommy left the barroom not a Gatlin boy was standin'
He said this one's for Becky as he watched the last one fall

And I heard him say
I promised you dad not to do the things you've done
I'll walk away from trouble when I can
Now please don't think I'm weak I couldn't turn the other cheek
And papa I sure hope you understand
Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man

Everyone considered him the coward of the county
