Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The American Way  Hank Williams

Capo 1st fret

        [G]If you fly in from Birmingham you'll get the last
if you blew in from Boston no you sure won't have to wait
        and I'm [C]learning, a little more every[G]day
        about the [D]power of the dollar, and the people with white collars
        and the good old American [G]way

        [G]I've noticed I don't get much help when they see my blue jeans
some slick with a suit walks up, oh can I help you please
        yes I'm [C]learning, as I gain a little [G]age
        about the [D]power of the dollar, and the people with white collars
        and the good old American [G]way

Solo (same chords as above verse)
key change before next verse[A]

        [A]Some high society lady says is your horse outside
no ma'am he's between my legs but your too fat to ride
        and your [D]learning, a little more about my [A]ways
        and what I [E]think about your dollar and your white collar
        and your good old American [A]way

        [A]If you don't like my Nudie boots I'm sorry about that
Don't make fun of my hat too or you might get knocked flat
        and you'll learn some [D]more, if you ever pass down [A]our way
        about the [E]folks without the dollars, and without white collars
        hell they are the American [A]way

Outro/Solo (same chords as last verse & fade)
