Verse 1:
          E
Well that label man said son now can you sing a little bit more clear 
     E
Your voice might be too genuine and your song's a little too sincere 
        E                                        A7                 E
Can you sing a little more about outlaws and the way things used to be 
           E (once)                                        B7 (once)           (fill 1)
He told me you just worry about writing them songs leaving everything else to me 

Verse 2:
      E
Daddy was a Highwayman but he never wrote any old country songs 
E
Papaw never stayed out raising hell til the break of dawn 
       E                                           A7              E
But he raised a proud coal miners daughter and I'm proud to be her son 
            E (once)                                         B7 (once) (fill 2)
She told me boy I don't care if you hit it big, cause you’re already #1 

Chorus:
                  A7                 E
That's the way it goes in this day & age 
    E                                                          B7
You ain't gotta read between the lines you just gotta turn the page 
              A7                                   E 
Well the most outlaw thing that I've ever done was give a good woman a ring 
                      E                B7                    E
But that's the way it goes, life ain't fair and the world is mean 

Solo:
|A7      |E    A7  |E   B7  |E       |


Verse 3:
             E
Well I still got the wife and the dog but I swapped the truck out for a van 
      E
Gonna hit the road find the end of that long white line in the promise land 
      E                                    A7                 E
Won’t hear my song on the radio cause that new sounds all the rage 
            E                                       B7 (once)             (fill 2)     
But you can always find me in a smokey bar with bad sound and a dim lit stage

Chorus:
                  A7                 E
That's the way it goes in this day & age 
    E                                                          B7
You ain't gotta read between the lines you just gotta turn the page 
              A7                                   E 
Well the most outlaw thing that I've ever done was give a good woman a ring 
                      E                B7                    E
But that's the way it goes, life ain't fair and the world is mean 
                      E                B7                    (fill 3)
But that's the way it goes, life ain't fair and the world is mean
