I know it isn’t Hank Williams, though I can sing him as well.
             G            D                 Em            A      A7

          Dma7              Bm             Em    
And I’m a stranger here in Tennessee I’m a boy from around the bay
               A            A#              Em          A  
Ah yeah, but I know how to sing boys and I know how to play.
          Dma7            Bm                Em                    
‘Cause my daddy taught me, taught me these words, taught me these chords.
         G        D               Em         D 
And he taught me before he passed on.

If there’s one small consolation here in these desperate times.
