When Good Ol' Boys Go Bad  Travis Tritt

This song is off his album "Honky-Tonk History"
Awesome song and CD
And all the G notes after the A notes can either be G
or E (I'm not really sure) you can also alternate the chords
(Verse 1)
Ol' [E]Clarence was a corn-fed [G]Sunday School teacher at the
[A]Cheap hill church of [G]Christ
A [E]god-fearin', fence-clearin', [G]hay-slingin', hymn-singin'
[A]Back breaker all o' his [G]life
Came in [E]early one night
found his [G]pretty wife
in the [A]arms of another [G]man
There [E]hell to pay when a [G]good ol' boy goes [A]bad[G]
(Verse 2, same chords)
In a smoke-filled late night club by the river
sat a stranger dealin' five card stud
He was a big-talkin' fast-walkin' fly by nighter
There to take their money and run
They caught the fella' cheatin' so they set him up a meetin'
With his maker in the promise land
Nobody sees a thing when a good ol' boy goes bad
The good [E]book goes out the [G]window
When the [A]gloves go to the [G]floor
His [E]give a damn to be a [G]righteous man
Don't [A]give a damn no [G]more
[E]Under that blue [G]collar
is a [A]big ol' long red [G]path
That [E]hides the truth but [G]it bleeds through
When a [A]good ol' boy goes [E]bad
(Verse 3)
Now old man Taylor was a fourth generation
Crop growin' son of a gun
One dry summer Uncle Sam come a runnin'
Wantin' money but there wasn't none
He put a crop in the holler, when night came he watered
When times get hard sometimes a good ol' boy goes bad
(Repeat chorus 2x)
It [E]hides the truth but [G]it bleeds through
When a [A]good ol' boy goes [E]bad
