    D                                             G    
THE OLD MAN WAS COVERED WITH TATOOS AND SCARS, HE GOT SOME IN PRISON AND SOME IN THE BARS. 
    A                                           D    
THE REST HE GOT WORKIN' ON OLD JUNK CARS IN THE DAY TIME. 
     D 
THEY LOOKED LIKE TOMBSTONES IN OUR YARD 
      G                      A                D   
AND I NEVER SEEN HIM WHEN HE WASN'T TIRED AND MEAN. 


   D                                  G 
HE SOLD USED PARTS TO MAKE ENDS MEET, COVERED WITH GREASE FROM HIS HEAD TO HIS FEET, 
A                                           D 
CUSSIN' THE SUN AND THE TEXAS HEAT, AND THE SKEETERS. 
        D  
AND THE NEIGHBORS SAY WE LIVE LIKE HICKS, 
         G                    A         D   
BUT THEY BRING THEIR CARS FOR PA TO FIX ANYHOW. 


       D                                   G 
HE WAS VET'RIN PROUD, TRIED AND TRUE, HE'D FIGHT TILL HIS HEART WAS BLACK AND BLUE, 
A                                         D  
DIDN'T KNOW HOW HE'D MAKE IT THROUGH, THE HARD TIMES. 
D 
BOUGHT OUR HOUSE ON THE G.I. BILL,  
       G                   A              D 
BUT IT WASN'T WORTH ALL HE HAD TO KILL TO GET IT. 


         D                                      G 
HE DRANK PEARL IN A CAN AND JACK DANIELS BLACK, CHEWED TOBACCO FROM A MAIL-POUCH SACK, 
A                                          D    
HAD AN OLD DOG THAT WAS TRAINED TO ATTACK, SOMETIMES. 
D 
HE'D GET DRUNK AND MEAN AS A RATTLESNAKE,  
          G                    A                     D  
AND THERE WASN'T TOO MUCH THAT HE WOULD TAKE, FROM A STRANGER. 


          G             A              D                            G 
THERE WAS 13 KIDS AND A BUNCH OF DOGS, HOUSE FULL OF CHICKENS AND A YARD FULL OF HOGS, 
A                    G                       D   
SPENT THE SUMMERTIME CUTTIN' UP LOGS FOR THE WINTER. 
G                        A                  D                            G 
TRYIN' LIKE THE DEVIL TO FIND THE LORD, AND WORKIN' LIKE A N---- FOR MY ROOM AND BOARD, 
A                                                                             D  
COAL BURNIN' STOVE, NO NATURAL GAS, AND IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS. 


D             G                          D    
IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'LL HAIRLIP THE POPE, 
              G    A                    D 
IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'S A DAMN GOOD JOKE. 
              G          A        D            G  
I'VE SEEN THE GRAND 'OLE OPRY AND I MET JOHNNY CASH, 
                  A                       D 
AND IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS.

Lack of accuracy. will write a whole tab and use "ass".... but thinks he's better than the original artist, the label and millions of record buyers... and won't write the word " nigger".
what a politically correct douche.
other than that, good job on the chords.

These chords are not even right. The studio version is in A# and unless you want to capo at 8, no way to get the D shapes.
