1. When [D]I was a ki[A]d Uncle Re[G]mus he     [D]put me to      [G]bed[A]
2. Well nothing makes a sound in the night like the wind does
3. When I was in school I ran with the kid down the street
1. with a [D]picture of Stonewall       [G]Jackson       [D]above my    [G]bed[A]
2. But you ain't afraid if you're washed in the blood like I was
3. and I watched him burn himself up on Bourbon and Speed
1. Then      [b]Daddy came in to kiss his      [A]little man
2. The smell of Cape Jasmine thru the window screen
3. but I was smarter than most and I could choose
1. with [b]gin on his breath and the Bible [A]in his hand
2. with John R. and the wolfman kept me company
3. learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news
1[G]. and he talked about honor and [A]things I should know
2. by the light of the radio by my bed
3. when I was eighteen, Lord I hit the road
1. Then [G]he staggered a little when he [A7]went out the door
2. with Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head
3. but it doesn't seem to matter how far I go
D G A G e A7
R: And I still hear the soft southern wind in the live oak trees
D G A G e A7
those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me, Hank and Tennessee
   I g[G]uess we're all gonna [A]be what we're gonna [b]be[G]
   So what do you do with [A]good ole boys like [D]me
