attitude adjustment

Hank Williams



 CA7
I met an old friend in the bar the other night
 D7
He got a little drunk and he wanted to fight;
 FGC
He jumped up and challenged every man in the room.
 CA7
 And just about the time he got the words out
 D7
An old boy jumped up and closed his mouth
 FGC
And used his head for a mop and his butt for a broom.
 CA7D7GC
It was an Attitude Adjustment, I guess it was his first time.
 CA7D7G
An attitude adjustment, now he understands just fine.
C (hit once) C7 (hit once)ÊÊ
He got bent out of shape, then he opened his mouth
F (hit once) D7 (hit once)ÊÊ
And just one appointment straightened him right out
 CA7D7G7C
It was an attitude adjustment--It'll work every time.
Now I've got this big old Brother-in-law
And me and him just never did get along
Cause he just wasn't treating my sister nice.
He got drunk one night and started and beating me up
And I went and got a tire tool out of my truck
And straightened him out as cold as a block of ice.
It was an attitude adjustment and it'll work every time.
An attitude adjustment-I made him see the light.
Now he says I'm his kind of man,
He comes around me with his hat in his hand
It was an attitude adjustment; I cured his family pride.
Now my girl friend slapped me in the face
And I said "Darling, that was your first mistake".
And then she went wild and her eyes turned red.
She started breaking everything and screaming loud
And kicking me and cussing me out
And I gave her a little adjustment on the top of her head.
It was an attitude adjustment, Ah she loves on me all the time.
Just an attitude adjustment, She's got a whole new frame of mind.
She don't nag and I don't beg, We get along and like I said,
Just an attitude adjustment Ah, everything's just fine.
She called the cops to take me in
And I said "You'll never do it , Friend".
And they just smiled and said "Oh yes we will!".
Now sticks to the head and kicks to the shin
And several bites by Rin Tin Tin
And I couldn't wait to get into that jail.
It was an attitude adjustment, Oh I went along peacefully
Attitude adjustment, They made me clearly see
So my head is black and my legs are blue
And both knee caps are bit clean through
It was an attitude adjustment
Made my whole life look brand new.
YES, SIR. I UNDERSTAND JUST FINE--PERFECTLY
