I've Got a Tiger by the Tail recorded by Buck Owens written by Harlan Howard and Buck Owens C C7 F I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see G7 C G7 I won't be much when you get through with me C C7 F Well I'm a losing weight and I'm turning mighty pale G7 C Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail F Well I thought the day I met you were meek as a lamb G7 C Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans F Now the pace we're living takes the wind from my sails G7 C And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail repeat #1 F Well every night you drag me where the bright lights are found G7 C There ain't no way to slow you down C F I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale G7 C And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail repeat #1
