IT'S WHAT I AM

Intro: (A5) (A5)

I (A5) got my first guitar when I was just a boy
I was playing the blues instead of playing with toys
(C) Listening to the Opry and (D) dreaming of those neon (A5) lights
So it was late to bed and early to rise
I worked the field all day and the crowd all night
My (C) finger on the trigger and (D) Nashville in my (A5) sights
I'm the (E) real thing and I sing (D/F#) songs about real (A) life

 And I (D7) never heard a fiddle called a (A) violin
 (D7) Never really worried if (A) I fit in
 (D7) Country ain't what I (A) sing it's what I (E7) am
 This (D7) hat ain't something (A) wear for style
 And these (D7) boots have been a(A)round a while
 (D7) Country ain't what I (E) sing (NC) it's what I (A5) am

I learned to drive on a red dirt road
Cruised the strip on rock and roll
And drove around on "Miles and Miles of Texas"
And as I grew Daddy showed me how
To earn a living by the sweat of my brow
But he never made me follow in his steps
He said work hard and let the good Lord do the rest

Repeat Chorus
