I'm a White Boy  Merle Haggard

Merle Haggard - I'm A White Boy
[A] [Ab] [G] [B] [A]  

[A]Some folks call me a ramblin? man
I [D]do a lot of thumbin? and kickin? cans
And it [A]wouldn?t do an ounce of good to call me [E]names
Cause [A]daddy?s name wasn?t Wille Woodrow
And [D]I wasn?t born and raised in no ghetto
Just a [A]white boy lookin? for a [E]place to do my [A]thang.
Well [A]I?m out to find me a wealth woman
And a [D]line of work that don?t take no diploma
I [A]ain?t got much to lose but a lot to [E]gain
Yeah [A]some might call me a good time fella
[D]I ain?t black and, I ain?t yella
Just a [A]white boy lookin? for a [E]place to do my [A]thang.
Yeah [D]I don?t want no [Eb]handout livin?
And [A]don?t want a part of anything they?re givin?
I?m [B]proud and white and I got a song to [E]sing
Well [A]I?ve said a few things and I?ll admit it
If you [D]want to get ahead you got to hump and get it
I'm A [A]White Boy lookin? for a [E]place to do my [A]thang.
[A] [Ab] [G] [B] [A]  
Yeah I?m a [A]small town boy been around a little
I [D]like guitars and I like a fiddle
And [A]that?s the kind of soul it take to fan my [E]flame
Well [A]I?m a blue eyed Billy kind of feared and ready
So [D]I?ll have to work to be somebody
I'm A [A]White Boy lookin? for a [E]place to do my [A]thang.
[A]I'm A White Boy lookin? for a [E]place to do my [A]thang.
