Stand Up To The Man
By Jason Boland
CD: Somewhere In The Middle 
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

I hear people talking about the line that I am walking
       A                               E
How it won't lead to the palace of the wise
There the ones that say they love you, try and stay above you
        E                                  A
They'll twist your arm and make you tell a lie
But to me its a game of blackjack, go on and take a step back
A                    A7             D
Hold your breath and let that money ride
Cause the dealer he's got twenty and you'll bust if you take any
      E                      A
So it never was for you to decide

Just put your chips out on the table
Bm                     E
Deal'em when your able to
And if you hit rock bottom, 
Smoke'm if ya got'em
At least you know you played a hand 
    E                       A
And you can stand up to the man

I don't see the reason for the politics and treason
We're riding the same rail that will take us home
And the world is just a boxcar, preachers next to rock stars
It'll take you anywhere you need to roam
Ask about the gambliní, interrupt their rambliní
Make your way to the back of the train
Cast your bread out on the water, you good sons and daughters 
You don't need a reason to explain
