Good Ole Boys Like Me Recorded by Don Williams Written by Bob McDill G D7 C G C D7 When I was a kid Uncle Remus would put me to bed G C G C D7 With a picture of Stonewall Jackson above my head Em D7 Then Daddy came in to kiss his little man Em D7 With gin on his breath and a Bible in his hand C D7 He talked about honor and things I should know C D7 Then he'd stagger a little as he went out the door
G C D7 C Am I can still hear the soft southern winds in the live oak trees D7 G C D7 C Am And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me Hank and Tenn-essee C D7 Em I guess we’re all gonna be what we’re gonna be C D7 G So what do you do with good ole boys like me
D7 C G C D7 Nothing makes a sound in the night like the wind does G C G C D7 But you ain’t afraid if you’re washed in the blood like I was Em D7 The smell of cape jasmine through the window screen Em D7 John R. and the Wolfman kept me company C D7 By the light of the radio by my bed C D7 With Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head
D7 C G C D7 When I was in school I ran with a kid down the street G C G C D7 And I watched him burn himself up on bourbon and speed Em D7 But I was smarter than most and I could choose Em D7 Learned to talk like the man on the six o’clock news C D7 When I was eighteen Lord I hit the road C D7 But it really doesn't matter how far I go
C D7 G Yeah what do you do with good ole boys like me
