I'm No Hank Williams
By Corey Smith
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
7/29/2010

Capo 1


C  Am  F  G  twice

        C           Am   F              G 
I got a foot in the door and one in the rain
    C               Am           F           G 
Iím standing on the threshold of fortune and fame
C        Am                F             G 
Out on a limb, I took that great leap of faith
     C               Am         F          G          
Oh I might crash and burn but I might fly away
    C    Am           F              G 
Who knows, thereís no telling what tomorrow holds

      C           Am         F            G 
And I ainít got a clue how I made it this far
       C           Am           F          G 
With a few country songs on an acoustic guitar
C                 Am              F         G 
I ain't that good looking and Iím painfully shy
        C               Am                 F        G 
I'm not cut out for the spotlight, just an ordinary guy
    C    Am       F             G    F
Who sings about a little bit of everything

F               C       F                    C
And Iím no Hank Williams but Iím feeling his pain
F               C       Bb                Am          G
Strung out on a highway somewhere between comfort and shame
                               C Am  F           G           C  Am  F  G
Oh and its getting hard to see,      its getting hard to see


I ainít got a new car, no mansion on a hill
Just a three bedroom house and whole bunch of bills
Its hard to get rich when everyone wants a cut
And all the family and friends they keep hitting you up
For cash Ö aww, the money burns too fast

My wifeís worried sick, afraid that I wonít be true
Sheís seen all the movies, know what the highway can do
But I made a promise, praying my soul to keep
So that my little boy wonít be ashamed of me one day
Lord, keep these pretty girls away


Well Iím no Hank Williams but Iím feeling his pain
Stretched out in a back seat, a good man driven to drink
Oh and its getting hard to see


Bridge:
F          C      Bb                  F  
All That I Wanted was my chance to provide
Dm             C   Bb                         G  
A song for the ages to leave some good work behind



Iím no role model, Iíve got more problems than most
Some have called me a genius, but hell I ainít even close
A head full of questions, fumbling and stumbling around
Hell I couldnít even tell you where Iíll be a few months from now
And Iím scared cause Iím no where near prepared

But Iíve got a foot in the door and one in the rain
I'm standing on the threshold of fortune and fame
Iíve got no way of knowing how its gonna end
I could be shut in or shut out, I guess it all depends on you
Well they think Iím cool


But Iím no Hank Williams
No Iím no Hank Williams
But Iím feeling his pain
