Mean Old Man--Kris Kristofferson featuring Carl Perkins
written by K. Kristofferson
From the album "Repossessed"
Corrections welcome.
NOTE: The D in for the INTRO and first three lines of verse/chorus is really a series
of D and D/A.   Listen to the record for the exact pattern (it's easier to hear than
it is to write it out).


INTRO: D

(Kristofferson)
D
If I look like a mean old man that's what I am
If I look like a mean old man that's what I am
                                            G          D
If I look like a mean old man who'll do you any way he can
               G                    A                 D
To break your heart and kiss your hand that's what I am

And if I look like a good ol' friend that's what I am
If I look like a good ol' friend that's what I am
If I look like a good ol' friend who's good at bending with the wind
To be your friend right to the end that's what I am


CHORUS (play faster, sing higher):
D
And if I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
If I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
                                           G                D
If I look like a voodoo doll who takes his lickin' standin' tall
             G                    A                 D
Who'd rather bite you back than crawl that's what I am


SOLO

(Perkins)
If I look like your Unlce Bob that's what I am
If I look like your Uncle Bob that's what I am
If I look like your Uncle Bob who likes to slap you on your back and rob you
While he still can do the job that's what I am


CHORUS
