INTRO



Hey, when C.C. Rider was just a snot-nosed kid,

I was already known for doin' what I did.

The women all screamed as I walked by,

My daddy would curse me and my momma'd start to cry.


             D                            A
'Cause I was known yeah, for doin' what I did.
               D                            A
Reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did.
E      
Ain't no way, they'll ever get this kid,
               A
'Cause I'm just too well known for doin' what I did.



Hey, my momma called the preacher, called up everyone she knew,

All of her friends were no good, you know who.

When old Casanova was a love-sick pup, 

I'd already broke me so many hearts I could've started me a dump.



             D                            A
'Cause I was known, yeah for doin' what I did.
               D                            A
Reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did.
E
Ain't no way they'll ever get this kid,
               A
'Cause I'm just too well known for doin' what I did.



A   D   A   E   A
INSTRUMENTAL



The older boys was teasin' me on my first day of school,

'Til finally the teachers let me break all the rules.

The press heard about it tried to put me in the news,

They wouldn't have no comment for fear of what they'd lose.



             D                            A
'Cause I was known, yeah for doin' what I did,
               D                            A
Reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did.
E                          
Ain't no way they'll ever get this kid,
               A
'Cause I'm just too well known for doin' what I did.


A
Ahh, it was like I was wrong.

Yeah, since I was born,

Man, I stood alone.

Yeah baby, I was strong,

For doin' what I did.

Yeah, doin' what I did.

Ah, doin' what I did.




Hey, when old C.C. Rider was a snot-nosed kid, 

I was already know, baby, for doin' what I did.

When little Casanova was a snot-nosed punk,

I'd already broke so many hearts I could've started me a dump.

'Cause I was known, for doin' what I did.

My reputation was strong, yeah for doin' what I did.

Oh, it was like I was born, yeah for doin' what I did. (song fades out)
