Hammer And Nail

Paul Thorn

 GCG
My boss man said you better get to work before i have to let you go
 AD
He just walks around and he pays no mind to the sweat dripping off of my nose
 GC
But after 10 long years of him dogging me out there's one thing i learned well
 GDG
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail

(VERSE 2?)
 GCG
My girlfriend she went out on me a hundred and fifty one times
 AD
At least she was honest enough to admit it when she wasn't too busy lying
 GC
But i came to a realization the last time she kicked my tail
G D G C, G, D, G
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail

(CHORUS)
 DG
If you've ever been on the receiving end then you know what it's like
 CGD
A losing situation has been the story of my life
 GC
But i ain't gonna let it beat me down and someday i'll prevail
G D G C, G, D, G
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail

(VERSE 3)
 GCG
I climbed in the ring with Roberto Duran and the punches began to rain down
 AD
He hit me with a dozen hard upper cuts and my corner threw in the towel
 GC
I asked him why he had to knock me out and he summed it up real well
 GDGC
He said i'd rather be a hammer than a nail    

(END)
 GDG
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
