Manny's Hat Song
Jerry Jeff Walker

[Verse 1]


  C 
Manny was a maker of hats, Manny was much more than that 
           F                    G                  C 
He was the kind of guy, you and I would want for a friend 
C 
Manny was a regular guy, with an old soul look in his eye 
         F                G                      C 
He was a man of word, and true to himself to the end 
 

[Chorus]


F                        G                     C  
Manny loved to laugh and share a good story or two 
          F                             G                      C  
If he's a making you a hat, he needs to know some things about you 
          F             G     C                   C/B      Am     
He'd say, "Set yourself down, tell us what you're thinking about 
     F                                                      G 
Your hat says something about you, 'fore you even open your mouth"

 
[Verse 2]
 

C 
Manny had a funky hat shop, south of town where everyone stopped 
   F                            G                   C 
To sit and chat, get a hat, and maybe get a new attitude 
            C 
He loved to sit up front and greet folks, take their measurements and laugh at their jokes 
    F                        G                      C 
You couldn't stop by without staying there all afternoon 
         C 
His wife Norma she sat in the back, sewing sweatbands in all of his hats 
    F                      G                         C 
She listened to the radio, some times I'd sing her a tune 
 

[Chorus]


F                        G                     C  
Manny loved to laugh and share a good story or two 
          F                             G                      C  
If he's a making you a hat, he needs to know some things about you 
          F             G     C                   C/B      Am     
He'd say, "Set yourself down, tell us what you're thinking about 
     F                                                      G 
Your hat says something about you, 'fore you even open your mouth"
 

[Verse 3]

C                                                                   
He made hats for a lot of great men but none were finer then he made for a friend 
   F                      G                          C
He made 'em the old way, steamed, and creased 'em by hand 
          C      
He'd take your old hat and make her brand new, he'd shape it any way you wanted him too 
     F                     G                    C
He'd fix it up fine with a porcupine-beaded hatband 
        C                  
You know his hats were worn all over the world, by real cowboy, women's and pearls 
   F                       G                        C
He even made one for me he jokingly called "the old friend" 
 
 
Bridge:  
          Am               Em      F                C 
Well when old friends disappear, I sometimes wonder where 
    Am                             Em                  C      G 
I'd like to think maybe there just somewhere round the bend 
    Am                  Em        F                 C  
But Manny's in heaven I bet, I'll go you one better yet 
F                   C                F                  G        
I'll bet money John B. and Manny are talking God into a hat 
 

[Verse 4]

C                        
Old Manny used to take me aside, he'd say Jerry Jeff you know how to write 
    F                                G                           C
Why don't you make up a hat song and do it just the way that you do 
              C              
Well now that old Manny has gone, I finally made him up Manny's hat song 
                F                                G          C
'Cause it's the best way to keep your old friend alive in a room 
 

[Chorus] 


F                        G                     C  
Manny loved to laugh and share a good story or two 
          F                             G                      C  
If he's a making you a hat, he needs to know some things about you 
          F             G     C                   C/B      Am     
He'd say, "Set yourself down, tell us what you're thinking about 
     F                                                      G 
Your hat says something about you, 'fore you even open your mouth"
 

C
Manny was a maker of hats, Manny was much more than that 
           F            G                          C
He was the kind of guy, you and I would want for a friend
