The Real Deal  Billy Joe Shaver

written by Billy Joe Shaver and Todd Daniel Snider
With a [G]halo of gnats around my [D]cotton-pickin' head
You never even listened to a single word I [A]said
You [G]sit there on your pompous ass and [D]click your fancy heels
Contemplate another piece of art that you can [A]steal
Yeah you're [G]rich and you're good-lookin' and outs[D]tanding in your [Bm]field
But I'm the [G]real deal, no you [D]can't know how I feel
'Cause I'm the [G]real, real real [D]deal
Ah ya [G]bet your sweet petuti I'm the [D]real deal[G] [D]
You may [G]always be rich and I may [D]always be poor
You're the kind that never gets enough of wantin' [A]more
[G]Hittin' on my friends, s[D]wingin' on my doors
Here's a little somethin's gonna even up the [A]score
[G]Try as you may you [D]can't know how I [Bm]feel
'Cause I'm the [G]real deal, oh you [D]can't know how I feel
'Cause I'm the [G]real, real real [D]deal
Ah ya [G]bet your sweet petuti I'm the [D]real deal[G] [D]
I [G]used to chop that cotton sometimes [D]leanin' on my hoe
But we all know a hoe ain't just a hoe any[A]more
You [G]educated gals are 'sposed to [D]be so damned smart
Sometimes you fool around and get the horse behind the [A]cart
I got [G]one foot in the grave the other 'un [D]on a 'nanner [Bm]peel
But I'm the [G]real deal, I can [D]make you young girls squeal
'Cause I'm the [G]real, real real [D]deal
You [G]bet your sweet petuti I'm the [D]real deal
