Don Williams – Good Ole Boys chords

Good ole Boys like me              Bob McDill   sung by Don Williams

D A G D G A1. When I was a kid Uncle Remus he put me to bed
2. Well nothing makes a sound in the night like the wind does 3. When I was in school I ran with the kid down the street
D G D G A1. with a picture of Stonewall Jackson above my bed
2. But you ain't afraid if you're washed in the blood like I was 3. and I watched him burn himself up on Bourbon and Speed
b A1. Then Daddy came in to kiss his little man
2. The smell of Cape Jasmine thru the window screen 3. but I was smarter than most and I could choose
b A1. with gin on his breath and the Bible in his hand
2. with John R. and the wolfman kept me company 3. learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news
G A1. and he talked about honor and things I should know
2. by the light of the radio by my bed 3. when I was eighteen, Lord I hit the road
G A71. Then he staggered a little when he went out the door
2. with Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head 3. but it doesn't seem to matter how far I go
D G A G e A7R: And I still hear the soft southern wind in the live oak trees
D G A G e A7 those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me, Hank and Tennessee
G A b G I guess we're all gonna be what we're gonna be
A D So what do you do with good ole boys like me
