Verse 1:
ba
Every since the day I was big enough to put my pants on by myself
da
You could find me somewhere with the radio turned on
B A
Then one night I gave my heart to an old beat up guitar
D E A
It never left my arms till I was almost grown

Verse 2:
ba
I had to try my hand as a workin man, tried to be my daddy's son
Da
But my mind was packed and gone and headed south
B A
Momma said i'll pray for you, then she said goodbye
D ea
To the only one out of seven that didn't work out

Chorus:
D A
Now I'm way down hear in dixie playing honky tonk music
Ea
Keepin' some joint a jumpin' every night of the week
D A
Lord knows it's hard to keep a dance hall women happy
De A
When you're drinkin' a little too much and you're workin' cheap

Verse 3:
B A
Well I ain't done a thing I can brag about to anyone back home
D A
Just another night club singer with a real good band
B A
If a jealous woman don't kill me, and momma keeps on praying
de A
Someday I might be more than what I am

Chorus.

De A
When you're drinkin' a little too much and you're workin' cheap
