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
 CG
        and I'm learning, a little more everyday
 D
        about the power of the dollar, and the people with white collars
 G
        and the good old American 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
 CG
        yes I'm learning, as I gain a little age
 D
        about the power of the dollar, and the people with white collars
 G
        and the good old American way

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

 A
        Some high society lady says is your horse outside
no ma'am he's between my legs but your too fat to ride
 DA
        and your learning, a little more about my ways
 E
        and what I think about your dollar and your white collar
 A
        and your good old American 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
 DA
        and you'll learn some more, if you ever pass down our way
 E
        about the folks without the dollars, and without white collars
 A
        hell they are the American way

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