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
