Black sheep  John Anderson

[G]My daddy was a breakman on a high ball traveling train
And mama she raised four little children and our family had a good name
And [C]papa and mama wanted all for us they never had
[G]Big brother, little brother, sister too
No they didn't turn out half bad, 'cept [D]meeeeee
No chord
I'm the black sheep of the family

[G]Big brother went to college and became a doctor man

I guess he makes about a million dollars a year

Off of folks home insurance plans
He's got a [C]big long mercedes bends and a house overlooking the town
He [G]sits in his jacuzzi and watches the sun go down
D No chord
And he feels real sorry for me, I'm the black sheep of the family

[G]Yeah, I [C]drive me a big ol' semi-truck,
I'm making [G]payments on a two-room shack
My [C]wife she waits on tables and at [A]night she rubs my [D]back
And I te[G]ll her what my papa said to my mama
When he [C]got off a high-ball train
[G]Wake me up early, be good to my dog and [D]teach my children to[G] pray.

[G]Little sister married a banker, yeah, and he owns a country club

He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny looking little dog
He buys her [C]big rings of diamonds and a brand new Japanese yacht
And [G]they like to get together and talk about all the things they got
D No chord
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

[G]I'm saying woman, wake me up early......(rest of chorus)
