The Real Thing
Recorded by George Strait
Written by Chip Taylor

C F C
I was on a bus comin' back to us from Atlanta in '53

And I picked up a rhythm and blues magazine
G7
Laying underneath my seat
C
And I found out the stuff they'd been playing us
F C
Wasn't made from grits and bone

And it would take more than the Crew Cuts
G7 C
And Pat Boone to take me home

F
I want the real thing give me the real thing
C G7
Make it loud I'll make you proud of the songs they'd sing
C
I don't want you under my roof with your 86 proof
F C
Watered down till it tastes like tea
G7 C
You're gonna pull my string make it the real thing for me

F C
I remember ol’ Elvis when he Forgot to Remember to Forget
G7
And when young Johnny Cash hadn't seen this side of Big River yet
C F
And when Sun was more than daylight shinin' on Memphis Tennessee
C
And Luther and Lewis and Perkins was pickin'
G7 C
And playin' them songs for me

Repeat #2 x2

G7 C
You're gonna pull my string make it the real thing for me
