The Best Way I Know How 
recorded by Mel Tillis
written by Jerry Chestnut

G                                    D7
I look up and there you stand before me
G                                 D7
Looking so surprised at what your see
        C                                    D7
Did you really think I'd be the same without you
    C                             D7
And stay the way that you remember me
      C                           D7
I had reasons for resisting all temptations
        C                                 D7
And the reason's standing right before me now
      G             C           D7
And I hope you take into consideration
         C              D7              G
That I'm getting by the best way I know how
All the empty bottles on the table
G                                  D7
And I seldom ever shave or comb my hair
     C                                 D7
No I didn't drink so much that I'm not able
     C                          D7
It's just that I'm not going anywhere
       C                                  D7
Seeing me like this I hope you won't feel guilty
          C                                 D7
And don't blame yourself for what I'm doing now
         G                  C              D7
I'm just right back where I was before you met me
        C              D7              G
And I'm getting by the best way I know how
        C              D7              G
And I'm getting by the best way I know how
