Self Made Man  Montgomery Gentry

Title: Self Made Man
Artist: Montgomery Gentry
Album: Tattoos and Scars
From: Chris Green
Lick 1

Lick 2

They use vibrato on the recording
intro: G, C, G, C (Lick 1 x2)
[G]I could say it's all her fault
She never had any patience at all
I'm a c[C]omplicated guy
And she didn't try to unders[G]tand
(Lick 2)
[G]I could claim I had nothing to do
With the fact that I'm lonesome and blue
But that w[C]ouldn't be true[D]
I'm a self made m[G]an
Yeah I[C]'m the one that f[G/B]ooled around
And l[Am]et the one that l[G]oved me down
And s[C]he had more of [G/B]me than she could st[Dsus4]and[D]
[C]I blamed every[G/B]one but me
But [Am]now that it's too l[G]ate I see
Nob[Am]ody helped me [G/B]get where [C]I am
I'm a s[D]elf made m[G]an
(Lick 1 x1)
I could blame it on the way I was raised
Or I could say that I was just too afraid
To let my heart in somebody else's hands
(Lick 2)
I could always make one more excuse
but in the end, what's the use
I might as well face, I'm a self made man
repeat chorus
Lead (C, G/B, Am, G; C, G/B)
[Dsus4]woa--,[D] [C]I blamed every[G/B]one but me
But [Am]now that it's too l[G]ate I see
Nob[Am]ody helped me [G/B]get where [C]I am
I'm a s[D]elf made m[G]an
(Lick 1 x3)
(end with last half of Lick 2)
These are the only tricky chords
[G/B] [Dsus4]  
 --X-- --X--
 --2-- --X--
 --0-- --0--

The rest are EXTREMELY basic
Knock yourselves out, Bud.
