Billy Overcame His Size Written and recorded by Merle Haggard
C Billy never made the football team G7 Cause Billy's size was small
But Billy's brother was a mighty lad C And played lot of high school ball
And Billy's daddy never favored him F He cared to the bigger guys C But later on in a bigger way G7 C Billy overcame his size
The years flew by and Billy grew G7 But he never got very big
We called him Shorty but never got mad C He was always good for a dig
But we paid no mind when he fell in line F And left with the other guys C And the sergeant left that skinny frame G7 C But Billy overcame his size
F Billy overcame his size C Am Yeah Billy overcame his size C G7 Later on in a bigger way C Billy overcame his size
Billy's brother made a football star G7 And the biggest man in town
And the scholarship that kept him home C Never seemed to bring him down
But on the other hand his brother Bill F Put pride in his daddy's eyes C When he died to save those other men G7 C Billy overcame his size
F Billy overcame his size C Am Yeah Billy overcame his size C G7 When he died to save those other men C Billy overcame his size
