The Winner
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Shel Silverstein

C G7
The hulk of a man with a beer in is hand he looked like a drunk old fool
C
And I knew if I hit him right why I could knock him off a that stool
F
But everybody they said watch out hey that's Tiger Man McCool
G7 C
He's had a whole lot of fights and he's always come out a winner
G7 C
Yea he's a winner

G7
But I'd had myself about five too many and I walked up tall and proud
C
I faced his back and I faced the fact that he had never stooped or bowed
F
I said Tiger Man you're a pussycat and a hush fell on the crowd
G7 C
I said let's you and me go outside and see who's a winner


Well he gripped the bar with one big hairy hand
G7
And he braced against the wall
C
He slowly looked up from his beer and my God that man was tall
F
He said boy I see you're a scrapper so just before you fall
G7 C
I'm gonna tell you just a little bout what it means to be a winner


He said now you see these bright white smiling teeth
G7
You know they ain't my own
C
Mine rolled away like Chiclets down the street in San Antone
F
But I left that person cursin' nursin' seven broken bones
G7 C
And he uh only broke uh three of mine and that makes me winner

G7
He said now behind this grin I got steel pins that holds my jaw in place
C
A trophy of my most successful motorcycle race
F
And each morning when I wake and touch this scar across my face
G7 C
It reminds me of all I got by being a winner

G7
Now this broken back was a dying act of a handsome Harry Clay
C
That sticky Cincinnati night I stole his wife away
F
But that woman she gets uglier and she gets meaner every day
G7 C
But I got her boy that's what makes me a winner


He said you gotta speak loud when you challenge me son
G7
Cause it's hard for me to hear

With this twisted neck and these migraine pains
C
And this big old cauliflower ear
F
And if it wasn't for this glass eye of mine why I'd shed a happy tear
G7 C
To think of all you're gonna get by being a winner

G7
I got arthritic elbows boy I got dislocated knees
C
From pickin' fights with thunderstorms and chargin' into trees
F
And my nose's been broke so often I might lose it if I sneeze
G7 C
And son you say you still wanna be a winner


Now you remind me a lot of my younger days
G7
With your knuckles a clenchin' white
C
But boy I'm gonna sit right here and sip this beer all night

And if there's somethin' that you gotta gain
F
Or prove by winnin' some silly fight
G7 C
Well ok I quit I lose you're the winner

G7
So I stumbled from that barroom not so tall and not so proud
C
And behind me I still hear the hoots and laughter of the crowd

But my eyes still see and my nose still works
F
And my teeth are still in my mouth
G7 C
And you know I guess that makes me the winner
