Good ole Boys like me              Bob McDill   sung by Don Williams

        D         A         G          D              G              A
1. 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      A
1. 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                              A 
1. 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                               A
1. 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                               A 
1. 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                             A7
1. 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  A7
R: 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
