                 "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White"
                               (Ed Cobb)

Intro:

	E   A    D   A    [2X]
	/ / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

	       E        A         D      A
	I'm a poor boy born in a rubble
	     E           A                 D     A
	And some say my manners ain't the best
	     E           A                  D             A
	And some of my friends, yeah, they been in real trouble
	     E               A               D      A
	And some say I'm no better than the rest

Chorus:

	                         B                   B  C  B
	But [2,3: So] tell your mama and your papa
	              [N.C.]             E   A   D   A  [2: repeat E-A-D-A]
	Sometimes good guys don't wear white, yeah

Verse 2:

	Every day, baby, I work hard
	And it's true at night I spend the restless time
	But those rich kids and all their lazy money
	Can't hold a candle to mine

[repeat chorus]

	 G                     C
	Good guys, bad guys, which is which
	      G                         C
	The white-collar worker or the digger in the ditch
	      G                    C
	And, who's to say who's a better man
	           B
	When I've always done the best I can

[repeat intro]

Verse 3:

	A-bad words and dirty minds
	All those messed-up chicks of the changing times
	White pills and easy livin'
	Can't replace the love I'm givin'

[repeat chorus]

Coda [rant over E-A-D-A to fade]:

	Ha, I mean to tell you
	You better tell your mama and your papa somethin'
	I'll split, I'll find myself another chick, yeah
	Ah, just for kicks
	You think those guys in the white collars are better than
	       I am?  Then flake off!
	You don't dig this long hair?  Get yourself a crewcut, baby!
	Yeah!  I mean what I say!  I don't need nobody, baby [fade]

very nice, i think he says at the third verse "a BACKWARDS and dirty mind" not "a bad words and dirty mind"

but still awesome, also very fun to pay in the key of G

I'm a poor boy born in a rut
Some say my manners ain't the best
Some of my friends have been in a whole lot of trouble
and some say I'm no better than the rest

But tell your momma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white

Everyday I work hard
At night I spend restless time
Those rich kids and all their lazy money
They can't hold a candle to mine

So tell your momma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white

Good guys, bad guys
Which is which?
The white collar worker
Or the digger of the ditch?
Man, who's to say who's the better man?
I'm doing the very best I can

Best I can

You thought I had a dirty mind
All those messed up chicks
Of the changing times
Love-filled and easy living
Can't come close
To the love that I've given

So tell your momma and your papa
Sometimes good guys don't wear white
They don't wear white
They don't wear white
They don't wear white
They don't wear white
