CHORUS:
   1          *          *       *               *          *     57   *
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble, ..  when you're perfect in every way

  *             *           *       *             *          *            *    *
I can't wait to look in the mirror, .... 'cause I get better lookin' each day

   1       *     *        *      17        *         4    *
To know me is to love me ___,  I must be a hell of a man

    *          *          1       *          57        *           1    *
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, .. but I'm doing the best that I can

  1       4      1           *        *              *            57    *
I used to have a girlfriend, .. but I guess she just couldn't com-pete

     *            *            *      *           *         *     1     *
With all of these love-starved women, .. who keep clamoring at my feet

       *             *         *      *        17                   *      4    *
Well I prob'ly could find me a-nother .. but I guess they're all in awe of me

    *        *         1         *           57          *          1   57
Who cares, I never get lonesome, .. 'cause I treasure my own compan-y,  Oh


  1               4         1      *    *          *              57     *
I guess you could say I'm a loner, .. a cowboy out-law, tough and proud

      *                  *            *
Oh, I could have lots of friends if I want-a /
       *             *              *            1      *
     / .. but then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd

     *              *       *
Some folks say that I'm ego-tistical /
       *          17         *              4      *
     / .. Hell, I don't even know what that means

  *            *            1
I guess it has somethin' to do with the way /
       *         57          *               1      57
     / .. that I fill out my skin-tight blue jeans, Oh
