The Blues Man
G                                         C
He’s just a singer, a natural born guitar ringer
          D                  G
Kind of a clinger to sad old songs
                                          C
He’s not a walk behinder, he’s a new note finder
                 D            C                 D       G
But his names a reminder of a blues man that’s already gone
                                                             C
So he started drinkin’, took some things that messed up his thinkin’
             D                     G
He was sure sinkin’ when she came along
                                              C
He was alone in the spot light, not too much left in sight
                     D                                 G
She changed all that one night when she sang him this song…

(chorus)

G                               Am
Hey baby I love you, Hey baby I need you
              D                        C                        G
Hey baby you ain’t got to prove to me you’re some kind of macho man
                                                        Am
You’ve wasted so much of your life, runnin’ through the dark nights
                       D           C       D          G
Let me shine a little love light, down on that blues man.

G                                                              C
He got so sick from speedin’, all the things they said he was needin’
                      D                   G
If he was to keep on pleasin’ all of his fans
                                              C
He got cuffed on dirt roads, he got sued over no shows
                 D                  C                       G
She came an took all that old load down off that old blues man

And he sang…

(chorus)

G                                   Am
Hey baby I love you too, Hey baby I need you
           D            C                 G
Hey baby I do get tired of this travelin’ band
                                              Am
I’m over forty years old now, nights would be cold now
               D                            G
If you hadn’t stuck it out with this blues man
                                                  Am
He’s over forty years old now, nights would be so cold now
               D                           G
If she hadn’t hung around with that blues man.

I play better with the chords instead of tab. Hank Jr. is the man, I love this song. Alan Jackson did this song as a tribute to "Bocephus"

I want to post or [tab]
