G C D G 
 
G D Well I remember William
C GWe weren't much more than kids
C GHis family lived in a run down shack
D CLike the rest of the white trash did
G DNow me and ole William
C G We used to smoke out behind the barn
C G Til his daddy caught him stealing cigarettes
D G I still think he broke William's arm
G D When I was drinkin my first beer
C G Ole William was getting high
C G He got kicked out of school for fightin and drugs
D C And he stayed out late at night
G D He never said too much about home
C G Or the bruises on his back
C G I asked him about em one time
D C But he never answered back
Chorus:
C Yeah William
D G You grew up hard and mean
C G You weren't the apple of your mama's eye
D C And your daddy was a burned out fiend
G D For what it's worth now William
C G I know you could've had a heart of gold
C G But I don't think you ever knew that you had one
D G C D G I don't think you were ever told
G D He spent a year in reform school
C G# Cause he broke in a hardware store
C G Now me and William lost track of each other
D C I never saw him much anymore
G D The last time I seen William
C G He was married and had two kids
C G He tried to raise em like he was supposed to
D C But sometimes he raised em like his daddy did
C Yeah William
D G You grew up hard and mean
C G You weren't the apple of your mama's eye
D C And your daddy was a burned out fiend
G D For what it's worth now William
C G I know you could've had a heart of gold
C G But I don't think you ever knew that you had one
D G C D G I don't think you were ever told
G D Well just last Sunday mornin
C G Momma called me on the phone
C G Said there's a story in the paper about William
D C She just thought I might like to know
G D He got shot by a city cop
C G While he was robbin a local drugstore
C G He was survived by two hungry kids, a wife
D C and a pool of blood on the floor
C Yeah William
D G You grew up hard and mean
C G You weren't the apple of your mama's eye
D C And your daddy was a burned out fiend
G D For what it's worth now William
C G I know you could've had a heart of gold
C G But I don't think you ever knew that you had one
D G C D G I don't think you were ever told
