Verses 1
G             D         C        D         C    D
When I was a kid Uncle Remus he put me to bed
        G          D         C       D        C    D
With a picture of Stonewall Jackson above my bed
     Em                         D
Then daddy came in to kiss his little man
      Em                      D
With gin on his breath and a Bible in his hand
   C                       D
He talked about honor and things I should know
           C                     D
Then he'd stagger a little as he went out the door


CHORUS:
      G              D             Em            D       C     D
I can still hear the soft Southern winds in the live oak trees
           G        D         Em           D      C
And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me
          D
Hank and Tennessee
    C                   D                   Em  D  C
I guess we're all gonna be what we're gonna be
                        D                  G
So what do you do with good ole boys like me

Verse 2
G               D            C     D        C          D
Nothing makes a sound in the night like the wind does,
    G           D              C             D          C      D
But you ain't afraid if you're washed in the blood like I was.
    Em                                D
The smell of Cape Jasmine through the window screen
     Em                         D
John R. and The Wolfman Kept me company
       C                        D
By the light of the radio by my bed,
     C                       D
With Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head.


 
CHORUS:
        G             D             Em            D       C     D
I can still hear the soft Southern winds in the live oak trees
           G        D         Em           D      C
And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me
          D
Hank and Tennessee
    C                   D                   Em  D  C
I guess we're all gonna be what we're gonna be
                        D                  G
So what do you do with good ole boys like me

Verse 3
G             D        C          D            C      D
When I was in school I ran with a kid down the street,
      G           D            C     D           C     D
And I watched him burn himself up on bourbon and speed,
      Em                         D
But I was smarter than that, and I could choose.
           Em                       D
Learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news.
     C                     D
When I was eighteen, lord, I hit the road
     C                           D
But it really doesn't matter how far I'd go


Last Chorus:
        G             D             Em            D       C     D
I can still hear the soft Southern winds in the live oak trees
           G        D         Em           D      C
And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me
          D
Hank and Tennessee
    C                   D                   Em  D  C
I guess we're all gonna be what we're gonna be
                       D                  Em  D  C 
So what do you do with good ole boys like me
                       D                       G
Yeah So what do you do with good ole boys like me
