Hammer and Nail  Paul Thorn

G, C, G
M[G]y boss man said you better get to work be[C]fore i have to let you [G]go
He just walks around and he pays no mind to the s[A]weat dripping off of my n[D]ose
But after [G]10 long years of him dogging me out t[C]here's one thing i learned well
I[G]'d rather be a h[D]ammer than a n[G]ail
(VERSE 2?)
M[G]y girlfriend she went out on me a h[C]undred and fifty one t[G]imes
At least she was honest enough to admit it when she w[A]asn't too busy l[D]ying
But i c[G]ame to a realization the last t[C]ime she kicked my tail
G D G C, G, D, G
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
I[D]f you've ever been on the receiving end then [G]you know what it's like
A l[C]osing situation has been the s[G]tory of my l[D]ife
But [G]i ain't gonna let it beat me down and s[C]omeday i'll prevail
G D G C, G, D, G
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
I[G] climbed in the ring with Roberto Duran and the p[C]unches began to rain d[G]own
He hit me with a dozen hard upper cuts and my c[A]orner threw in the t[D]owel
I[G] asked him why he had to knock me out and he s[C]ummed it up real well
He said i[G]'d rather be a h[D]ammer than a n[G]ail[C]
I[G]'d rather be a h[D]ammer than a n[G]ail
