The World According To Raymond
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: Nashville Storyteller (1997)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle
9/12/21

Capo 2

G        C     D           G       C
It's the world according to Raymond
      G        D            G
And a Raymond, according to me


   G             D             G
He lives down in old North Carolina 
      C              D           G
Makes moonshine from good copper wire
   C         D          G            C
He carries a big thirty eight, it's illegal 
       G         D             G
But we know that Raymond don't care

Raymond explains his religion 
It's the air it's the earth it's the dirt
The Lord gives it to you and he takes it away 
And without it you ain't got a prayer


Chorus:
           C     D            G
That's the world according to Raymond
     C           D              G
He's rough, he's tough and he's free
           C     D            G       C
That's the world according to Raymond
       G          D          G
That's Raymond, according to me

Now Ray never killed anybody 
But he hurt some that got in his way
Raymond still makes it but Raymond quit drinkin' 
He got beat up in the friendly cafe

Now an old hog ain't got but one blood vein 
And it's located there in itís neck
If you don't believe it, come back next December 
But I ain't been back down there yet

Chorus


Thatís the world according to Raymond
And thatís Raymond. according to me
