Understand Your Man  Dwight Yoakam

By Dwight Yoakam
rmofle at
Capo 2
[G]Donít call my name out your [Em]window as Iím leaving
[C]Cause I wonít even turn my [D]head
[G]Donít send your kin folks to [Em]give me no damn talkiní
[A]Cause Iíll be gone like I [D]said
You can [G]say the same old things that you been [G7]saying all along
So just [C]lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut Ďtil Iím gone
No, [G]donít give me that old familiar [Em]cryiní cussiní moan,
[C]Under[D]stand your [G]man[G/F#] [Em]
Awww, [C]under[D]stand your [G]man
You can give my other suit to the Salvation Army
And everything else I leave behind
I ainít takiní nothing thatíll slow down my traveliní
While I untangle my mind
I ainít gonna repeat what I said anymore
While Iím breathiní air that ainít been breathed before
Yeah, Iíll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then youíll understand your man (go on, meditate on it)
Understand your man (you hear me talkiní, honey)
Understand your man (remember what I told ya)
Understand Your Man
Understand Your Man
Understand Your Man
Understand Your Man
Understand Your Man
Understand Your Man
