Black Sheep
By John Anderson


G
My daddy was a brakeman on a high ball traveliní train

My mama she raised four little children and our family had a good name
    C
And papa and mama wanted all for us they never had
G
Big brother, little brother, sister too, none of them
      D         N/C                             G
'Cept meeeeee - I'm the black sheep of the family

G
Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
  G
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year off of folks on insurance plans
 	      C
He's got a big long Mercedes Bendz and a house over looking the town
   G
He sits in his Jacuzzi and he watches the sun go down
       D                        No chord 	                      G 
And he feels real sorry for me, I'm the black sheep of the family


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


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 big rings of diamonds and a brand new Japanese yacht
And they like to get together and talk about all the things they got
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

Chorus

G
I'm saying woman, wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray
