You want to grow up to paint houses like me, a trailer in 
            C        G
my yard till you're 23 
   C                    G              D
You want to be old after 42 years, keep dropping the hammer 
   C            G
and grinding the gears

Well, I used to go out in a Mustang, a 302 Mach One in 
D                    C          G          D
Me and your Mama made you in the back and I sold it to buy 
     C    G
her a ring 
     C                          G             C
And I learned not to say much of nothing and I figured you 
already know 
      C                 Em                  D
but in case you don’t or maybe forgot, I’ll lay it out real 
nice and slow

Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your

Six months in a St. Florian foundry, they call it Industrial Park.

Then hospital maintenance and Tech School, just to memorize Frigidaire parts.
 C                         G      C                  G    
But I got to missing your Mama and I got to missing you too.

So I went back to painting for my old man and I guess that’s what I’ll always do

And don’t let me catch you in Kendale with a bucket of wealthy-man’s paint. 
 C                             G            C                         G
Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your car is broke.

Have fun, but stay clear of the needle, call home on your sister’s birthday.

Part of the lyrics are wrong."Six months in a St. Florian foundry", Should be "Five years in a St. Florian foundry". In your defense though, the lyrics on the DBT web site also say "Six months", which baffles the crap out of me because every version I've ever heard, Isbell says "five years".
